Things have changed a lot over the years, but one thing has remained constant and that is our love of the Mariners. People come and go, some like to post a lot and others just like to read. It's up to you how you participate in the community!

It only takes a few minutes, and joining will let you post your thoughts and opinions on all things Mariners, Football, and whatever else pops into your mind. If posting is not your thing, you can interact in other ways, including voting on polls, and unlock options only available to community members.

    ccmfans.net is not only for Mariners fans either. Most of us are bonded by our support for the Mariners, but if you are a fan of another club (except the Scum, come on, we need some standards), feel free to join and get into some banter.

Sports flick streaming

Not really Mariners related, but I wonder if this lot are interested in the A League?

A mysterious Sydney-based start-up that streams Indian baseball, Nicaraguan football and bare-knuckle boxing has beaten some of sports broadcasting’s biggest players to secure the exclusive rights to the UEFA Champions League in Australia.

Sports Flick – a streaming service that launched late last year and broadcasts predominantly fringe sports and football leagues with extremely niche local followings – has emerged as the shock winners of a blind auction-style tender process for the rights to the world’s most-watched club tournament, according to sources with knowledge of the deal.



Thanks Adz

Would need some serious due diligence to make sure these guys can pay the bills if they did go for the rights. Selecting a broadcaster that goes bust could put the league in an extremely dangerous spot.
They wouldn’t be able to do the production. Pretty sure the A League is going to need someone that can produce as well as stream like fox.
Otherwise the A League should do everything it self.
The A League could even go in an untraditional way and sell to everyone with no exclusivity.

Could be produced by A League and sold to Kayo Optus Stan and free to air as well as this new crew. You might get close to the same money and bigger exposure. Its not a massive market so there maybe more appetite for this than paying overs for exclusive content

There is a massive market for Football worldwide. I'm pretty sure just about every Country in the World would be interested in showing the A League if they could buy a slickly produced product at a decent price.

Very much so.

In fact, it's quite an argument to switch to winter for the A-League as the northern hemisphere rights would be more valuable outside their own winter seasons.

Chief executive Dylan Azzopardi says he founded Sports Flick in 2019 when he was 25 years old. His LinkedIn profile states he is an “entrepreneur with a demonstrated history of working in the media production industry” and a Tafe graduate.

Azzopardi’s LinkedIn connections are extensive and include a number of high-profile executives, including Football Australia CEO James Johnson. His 300-odd Instagram followers include John Ibrahim’s former bodyguard, Neil Cummins. Turner told Guardian Australia that Cummins is “categorically not involved with Sports Flick”.


I wonder what that has to do with it all?
