MCWFC are no strangers to making history and on the latest step of their journey they teamed up with CityTV to give fans a new way of watching them in action.
Nick Cushing’s side recently faced Melbourne City Women in a pre-season friendly in Abu Dhabi and the CityTV cameras enjoyed access all areas to ensure supporters got closer to the game than ever before.
Streamed live on mcfc.co.uk and the Melbourne City website, the innovative matchday coverage delivered an immersive highlights package.
Fans had the opportunity to find out what goes on moments before kick off, as CityTV were granted access to the inner sanctum of the dressing room to see Cushing deliver his final pre-match instructions.
The inventive coverage continued during the game, with every aspect of MCWFC’s captain Steph Houghton’s performance captured on ‘Spotlight’ player cam, while Melbourne City midfielder Amy Jackson was fitted with a microphone throughout.
Finally, supporters were given the opportunity to see the game from the point of view of the officials, as the match referee was fitted with a GoPro camera to show what the game looks like when you’re a part of it at pitch level.
