Showing 27th-29th and October 1 on Sky Sport channels in New Zealand
AUCKLAND – New Zealand sports fans will be able to get another taste of the world’s fastest growing indoor sport when highlights of the recent ASB Trans Tasman Cup held in Auckland air on Sky TV this week.
The three futsal internationals were filmed by OFC TV at ASB Stadium in Kohimarama and consolidated into a 30 minute magazine-style show.
The highlights package follows on from the Sky TV’s successful broadcast of the ASB Futsal National League series earlier this year.
New Zealand Football’s Futsal Development Manager Dave Payne said the coverage would help attract even more players to a game that it beginning to take off in centres around New Zealand.
“TV is a wonderful shop window to showcase the sport and I’m sure the highlights will grab the interest of viewers who haven’t been exposed to the sport before,” Payne said.
“The fast pace of futsal and the indoor setting make it an ideal spectator sport and the action from the ASB Trans Tasman Cup was really entertaining.”
