29th July 2013
The Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL) today announced a new radio broadcasting deal with Bauer Media for the coming season.
All of Bauer’s Scottish radio stations - including Clyde, Forth, Northsound, Tay, West and MFR – will have the right to broadcast Goal Flashes from Scottish Premiership and Scottish League One matches throughout the 2013/14 campaign.
Graham Bryce, Managing Director for Bauer Media Scotland, said: “We’re delighted to be working with the SPFL for next season, continuing our long-running association. Our local audiences across Scotland love the drama and excitement associated with goal flashes, and with this deal in place we can keep them informed throughout every match day with all the important action.
“Our stations are the only place to get all of the local action delivered stylishly and in real time, and, as our shows deliver across multiple platforms, whether you are listening online, via app or on FM you won’t miss a thing.
“Our football coverage is led by our market-leading Superscoreboard show on Clyde 1 which launches for the new season tonight and starts the season with all-time record listening figures, demonstrating the popularity of our unique format where the listener is the star.”
Neil Doncaster, Chief Executive of the SPFL, said: “Ahead of the first SPFL season kicking off this weekend, it is great to be announcing Bauer Media as an official broadcast partner of the Scottish Premiership and Scottish League One. This deal not only drives more investment into our clubs, but also helps deliver the passion and excitement of our game to fans across the country. We look forward to working with all of the Bauer stations throughout the coming season.”
