Ken Shipp, SBS Director of Sport, expressed his enthusiasm:

SBS was established more than 40 years ago, and it is the only media organisation dedicated to inspiring a shared understanding and promoting the value of cultural diversity.

One of the best ways in which SBS can bring Australians together in this way is through great sporting moments like the 2023 IFCPF Asia-Oceania Championships.

Highlighting the impact of such comprehensive coverage, Sarah Walsh, Football Australia’s Head of Inclusion mentioned,

At the recent FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 we witnessed the transformative power of visibility and representation on the national level.

Providing effortless access and increased opportunities to watch the CommBank Pararoos and the CommBank ParaMatildas, and show what is possible through football, could be lifechanging for an Australian living with cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury or symptoms of stroke.

Veteran CommBank Pararoo David Barber, marking his 23rd year of captaincy, shared his sentiments:

It’s incredibly humbling to know that this year, SBS will be helping to share our beautiful game with all of Australia.

This will bring fans not just of the green and gold, but the vast and rich diversity of our Asian Cup visitors as well, the chance to come together, and enjoy the pure competition that will light up Melbourne this year.

On the Opening Day, 4 November, the CommBank Pararoos and CommBank ParaMatildas will commence their challenges against Thailand and Japan at 5.15pm AEDT and 3.00pm AEDT respectively.

Match Day 4, scheduled for 7 November, has been updated. While the men’s side rests, gates will be thrown open for spectators to experience CP football firsthand on the public holiday. The day’s highlight: a standalone match with the CommBank ParaMatildas facing off against Japan.

Culminating the Championships, the Women’s Final will be played on 10 November, followed by the Men’s Final on 11 November.
