ABC Radio National’s The Sports Factor ran a good story on the progress of FootyWild in South Africa and mentioned the International Cup, in their weekly program last Friday morning at 8.30AM. Audio and Transcripts are available clicking the link in the first line of this story. Lets hope The Sports Factor follows this up with a report on the International Cup itself.

In other mainstream media news, veteran Melbourne football writer, Mike Sheahan, who previously could perhaps have been labelled a sceptic on international footy, appears to have had a conversion experience with his visit to Royal Park last week. Writing in the The Herald Sun he compared the standard exhibited by the more established nations as equivalent to Victorian Amateur League B grade – a very respectable standard indeed and encouraged readers to get along and see the games for themselves.
