WAFC rejects Falcons’ offer on Ch9 logo

The club made the suggestion as a compromise to issues between the Falcons’ Channel 9 sponsorship and broadcaster Channel 7.

In a statement to members on Tuesday night, chief executive David Crute said:

‘The club offered the WAFC and Channel 7 the opportunity to televise this match, however, the WAFC has rejected the offer on the basis that such a deal would amount to West Perth nominating which of its matches would be televised,’ he said.

President Brett Raponi said he would have expected the WAFC to have more influence on Channel 7 given it was funding production costs.

The statement emphasised $8000 contributed by each club to the WAFL’s joint marketing strategy would not be used for broadcast costs.
