Football Federation of Australia & the Australian Media

Youth development is the future for Australian football, we need to start taking it more seriously and one step to taking youth football more seriously is to have a better coverage from the media.

The 2006 AFC Youth Championship had no telecast on either radio or television in Australia, the Young Socceroo's, Joey's and Olyroos received nothing in terms of telecast in their tours of South America or Asia.

So how seriously is Australia taking youth development with little recognition in the media? This is a question I pose to you.

In countries like Portugal, Spain, Brazil, Argentina, China, Japan, Korea and many more countries, youth football gets broadcasted on television or at least radio. If Australia is to become a world power, we need to give our youths the media coverage they deserve.

A better broadcast will allow the football loving public of Australia to open our eyes and it will allow for an easier scrutiny and analysis by the media and coaches of the direction of our youths.

We, the undersigned, call for a broadcast and better coverage of our football youths, this includes the broadcast of youth tournaments and various tours by our youth teams.
