The 10-episode series will be televised across Australia until the end of the 2013 WAAFL season.

Breakfast radio personality Steve Mills will host the series that will keep the 65 WAAFL clubs and associated amateur football community up to date with what’s happening in the league.

It will be the only locally produced television show that showcases community football in Perth.

Each episode is shot on location, and features all aspects of the WAAFL, including club, masters, integrated and women’s football.

WAAFL general manager David Armstrong said it was a great initiative and one that would help unite the football community.

Amateur Footy Time is another step forward for the WAAFL, and will keep everyone engaged with amateur football,’ he said.

Series director David Macrae said the WAAFL’s initiative and support of the new production had been fantastic.

‘Community football is the lifeblood of the sport in WA and this series will show how important the sport is.’

The AFT team will travel around the metropolitan area, and to the regions, seeking out characters of community football, showcasing highlights from on and off the field, going behind the scenes, and showing young and aspiring footballers how to improve their game.

Amateur Footy Time will be broadcast on Thursday at 8pm on Foxtel’s Aurora channel.
