We will admit that we were not sure about the FFA’s plans for Big Wednesday, scheduling all A League games across New Zealand and Australia back to back on the same day, but it appears to have been a huge success with good crowds attending most venues and some superb football served up.
We wondered how many people would be tuning in around the country as the nation went back to work, but it seems many managed a sneak view of many of the games.
One thing that would have helped as with so many holidays at this time of year it is hard to know what day it is, was if Fox Sports had not had the “Match Day Saturday” backdrop in the studio. For some of us who are still struggling to get into 2012, this added to the confusion. Overall thought it was a great initiative and appeared to be hugely successful.
