In each round of the PlayStation 4-sponsored NPL, one match will be live-streamed by existing broadcast partner The 10th Inning, while SRS will record the other five games.
FFSA and the NPL clubs will be able to use the footage for coach education, team analysis, referee development and marketing and promotion – likely via the broadcast of highlights packages on social media.
SRS is already used by Football Federation Australia, an agreement that includes recording Westfield W-League matches.
FFSA Chief Executive, Michael Carter, explained this footage will increase the exposure of the State’s elite football competition.
“Local football will be on show to a greater audience this season, which is an exciting development for the game in SA,” said Carter.
After the success of live-streaming last year’s Women’s NPL grand final, FFSA has also confirmed that it has had discussions about increasing its coverage to include regular WNPL season matches, particularly when they feature in double headers with the men’s competition.
The first of these double headers will be played on Sunday 21 May when West Adelaide hosts Adelaide City at Adelaide Shores Football Centre.
The NPL kicks off on Thursday night with a meeting between last year’s grand finalists: Campbelltown City and Adelaide City.
