A new and exciting weekly football show has been launched in our region with an emphasis on news, interviews, unification and promotion of the round ball code.
Called the Wollongong Football Show, the podcast is under the direction of host Andrew Byron and is based on the popular Daily Football Show in Melbourne.
Byron said after five successful weekly shows its popularity had grown among the region’s starved football fraternity and sports’ lovers.
“The podcast encapsulates football news from the Illawarra, South Coast and Southern Highlands, with a level of high production quality, and interviews with junior and senior players, coaches and administrators who live for the game,” he said.
Byron said a catalyst behind the show’s introduction was the region’s push for an A-League club. The former Wollongong Wolves chairman and football fanatic has been connected with a corporate A-League bid involving the Wolves’ since 2014.
He continues to adopt and promote Football Federation Australia’s stance of “building a unity of purpose across all tiers of the game”, which he believes would enhance the region’s chances of securing an A-League team.
“This podcast is an extension of that attempt to unite the region, talking football under one voice and one region,” Byron said.
“It is the people that make the difference and we want to hear their stories on our show.” The Wollongong Football Show can be heard on Thursdays featuring a round table with co-host Earle “The Pearl” Canvin, The Illawarra Mercury’s Mitch “Biscuits” Cohen and Illawarra Stingrays’ Pete “Supernova” Nowakowski.
