In what started a few weeks ago as the likelihood that one of the grounds at Royal Park would have each match covered, and then last week was looking like two out of three grounds - now all games in Round 1 will be streamed live and be available on demand to watch at later date. Additionally all matches on McAlister, Ransford and Western ovals on Friday August 22 (Finals Round) will have the same coverage.
Both the Men's and Women's Grand Finals will also be streamed live for the first time.
Additionally the USA Liberty v Canada Midnight Suns on Wednesday 20th August will also be streamed live as the Liberty have a BYE in round 1, this will ensure that every team in the tournament will get at least one match filmed and streamed live.
So what does World Footy News need to go to the International Cup for? We can now all stay home and stream it on our laptops. Don't worry we will still be writing up all the games, and there are still games that will not be streamed. But this is a huge step for the International Cup and we applaud it loudly. Let's just hope it all goes well - some international streaming efforts (even of AFL matches) don't always go smoothly.
