Four years ago Western Australians were unable to tune into the FIFA World Cup on radio until the quarter finals when following complaints directly to FIFA, 990 6RPH Information Radio after reaching an agreement with SBS broadcast the final rounds of the competition.
In response to this demand from listeners SBS Radio have ensured that this will not be the case in 2010 and have partnered with the RPH Australia network to be able to offer Australians comprehensive English language coverage of the 2006 FIFA World Cup games on radio around Australia.
SBS Radio will be broadcasting all of the games from the 2010 FIFA World Cup on their FM radio services but only in the foreign languages of the teams contesting each fixture. Their English language coverage will only be broadcast on their AM stations of which there was not one in Western Australia, so a partnership with RPH was beneficial to all.
Therefore all English speaking Australians in the Perth metropolitan area and football fans in general will benefit from this partnership, as otherwise they would be unable to pick up this coverage.
There is no doubt that the FIFA World Cup is the biggest sporting event on the planet and 990 6RPH Information Radio are pleased to be partnering SBS once again to bring you Western Australians all the live action from South Africa.
