SWR Triple 9 FM launches SWR Sport

Tuesday 24 October, 2017
SWR Triple 9 FM live from WIN Entertainment Centre

Broadcasting live to Sydney's West.

Already home to several live sports, the launch of ‘SWR Sport’ provides an outlet for the recently acquired sport content that has landed at SWR.

In partnership with Crocmedia and Football Nation, SWR is an official broadcaster of the Western Sydney Wanderers, including every home game and selected away games this A-League and W-League.

SWR also broadcasts live Sydney Kings and Illawarra Hawks basketball, giving hoops fans in Sydney’s West access to the NSW NBL teams with over 25 games during the season plus playoffs.

Head of Sport, Julian Daw said, “We’re bringing the world of sport back to our listeners in the West, with a local voice and that’s something that hasn’t been done in a long time. We’re a young group of broadcasters that are trying to get a toehold in a very competitive industry, so an opportunity to be a part of something like this is an honour, to have A-League, W-League, NBL and ABL is quite an achievement for a non-profit local station to acquire in the space of a few weeks." 

In addition to the growing sport stable, SWR will be broadcasting ten Sydney Blue Sox regular season games and playoff rounds from Blacktown International Sportspark. SWR Triple 9 will also have player interviews, news and other Blue Sox features on their morning show ‘Brekky with Busco’.

General Manager of Sydney Blue Sox, Joe Glendinning said “We are excited to partner with SWR Triple 9 FM for the upcoming season to give the fans greater access to the team. We have an exciting season of Blue Sox Baseball coming up and are happy to give our fans the opportunity to listen to the games live when they are unable to attend in person.”​
