About

The Football Sack is a voluntary website that aims to combine quality reporting with irreverence and humour – using social media and the internet to build and improve upon the coverage of the Hyundai A-League, Westfield W-League and football in Australia.

The Sack plays host to a growing number of writers from across Australia. One of our primary objectives is to increase exposure for young journalists and allow them to grow their sports writing portfolio. Meet the team for this season.

Along with news articles, match reports and other written content, The Football Sack commentates every game of the Hyundai A-League live through our @TheFootballSack account which in 2012 and 2013 won the FFDU Award for Best Use of Social Media.

Our podcast, featuring over 100 episodes, has won Best Football Podcast in 2015 and also for two years running in the FFDU Awards (2011 & 2012). Thanks to sponsors Banking on Football, Arriverderci Pizzeria, Southern Cross University and SMG Australia, we recently covered the 2014 FIFA World Cup with an episode every day in The Football Sack’s Podcast for Brazil!
