SBS will broadcast all three of the Joeys’ group stage games in the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup Chile.
All three games against Germany, Mexico, and Argentina will be broadcast live and in full high-definition on SBS.
Joeys and FFA Centre of Excellence technical director Peter de Roo said it was fantastic to know the Australian public will have a chance to see the next generation in action.
“We’ve been working really hard on implementing an exciting Australian brand of football,” de Roo said.
“We’re hoping Australia will get behind us and support us as we take on the world’s best.”
Australia kicks off its campaign against Germany on Monday, 19 October at 6.00am [AEDT], before taking on Mexico on Thursday, 22 October at 7.00am, and wrapping up its group games against Sunday, 25 October at 9.00am.
A top-two finish will see the Joeys automatically progress to the Round of 16, while a third-placed finish in its group will leave Australia with a nervous wait to see if it is one of top four third-placed teams, who will also qualify.
In addition to broadcasting all of Australia’s games, SBS will also broadcast both Semi-Finals of the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup Chile on Friday, 6 November.
It will also show the final live and in high-definition on Monday, October 9.
