    2022 TV Coverage

    What chance that the 'New FAI' have secured a positive Airtricity League TV Package, as it was one of the intentions of the new regime!

    RTE releasing ther usual early season games promotion. Its what we expected, an initial flurry of live games and then slowly tapering off as if the league has gone into hibernation.

    What is necessary is a live league game every weekend followed by highlights package of the other games later in the week!

    Whats the opinion out there!

    Is there any details of how many games RTÉ are covering and what other stations will be showing games? I can only find last seasons details in the below link

    The lack of consistent and regular scheduling of live games has hurt the league for the past 20 years

    Agreed, a highlights show would be good, perhaps even with a UK element about the Irish Abroad to get the Rep of Ireland fans interested.

    Thought MNS was an entertaining show when Con Murphy had it.

    Yeah once Peter Collins took over and the show was cut in half it wasnt the same program. I am surprised that Virgin arent up for showing loi highlights considering it was their predecessors TV3 that started the ball rolling wot nearly 20 yrs ago now!
    Gary Cronin is he the right man to manage Longford Town?

    It’s an absolute travesty that Peter Collins gets so much exposure on RTE when Con Murphy is a far better presenter. The Monday night programme was much better when Con did it.
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    Ive no issue with Collins and the format of the show changed along with presenters. I felt that MNS tried to be both a highlights show and a football magazine show - some gimmicks worked other didnt. Con looked to be forever on the verge losing it with laughter at whatever the pundits were up to off camera and trying to keep some control. It added some character to the show but the messing shouldnt have happened. Maybe there werent a whole load of highlights but often there was an incident that ye wanted to see again after being at a game only for it not to be included in highlights. Soccer Republic was far less flustered looking, had better analysis but was shortened limiting highlights again. The old gang of Roddy, Dave Barry, McDonnell etc made way for Crawley and Byrne type analysts. When around the grounds started on match night it really did did gut any proper highlights and analysis after the weekend fixtures.

    I thought the whole lot was rubbish tbh. But it was nice to have a highlights show on TV at least.

    I think the talking part of a MNS is now redundant for the league, as it is normally excellently covered on various podcasts, which there is a great choice of.

    All that really needed now is a wrap show of the highlights from LOI.TV put onto a youtube channel. If the round of games could be put out the same night as the games, much better.

    I think it's something the official league social media accounts and their Youtube channel could be doing to effectively broaden their own reach too. Upload a highlights show the night of games, or the following day at latest. There's no reason they can't do that when they've got someone already clipping goals for social media accounts, and full time staff there capable of putting something together.

    The dream for me would be a Sky Sports News type show with reporters at the various grounds, some studio folks keeping it going, show the goals as they go in, include the first division too and generally package the league as a product.

    I've never understood why Sky haven't picked up the LOI as relatively cheap content for them during the off-season for Britain. There would surely be interest amongst people there missing a bit of football to watch it and adopt a team etc.

    Maybe the quality of the stadia is such that they just don't think it's broadcastable (which would be fair if so). Or it could be that Sky wouldn't want the cost of running it all in Ireland. But there wopuld be easy ways around that by contracting 90% of it out. Or just do a deal with RTE or LOITV, who have cameras at games anway.

    They should try it for a season by just taking the feed from any games that RTE are broadcasting over the Summer and seeing how it goes down with their British viewers (with a suitabel dollop of Sky hype added, of course).

    In general terms, it's shocking how Sky has hundreds of thousands of subscribers in Ireland yet the chamnel provides zero Irish-focused content. They briefly tried a nightly Irish News show at 7pm years back, but abandoned it fairly quickly. They obviously think the Irish are stupid enough to still pay for a channel that basically pretends they don't exist. And sadly they're right.

    It would also offer sky a good product for the summer when the UK leagues are closed, loads would be interested in placing small bets too, nothing stopping them but with a live game, more interest, even if its just on in the background / pubs etc.
    #DundalkFC - First Irish club to win an away game in Europe (1963), first Irish club to win points in a group stage in Europe (2016).

    Its a question that English lads would ask when they'd be out with us to watch LoI games in England in some Irish bar. They tended to be impressed enough and enjoyed the games and were generally less critical of things over all. But then Dundalk were schooling teams in football with a swagger at the time. Inevitably there was the non LoI person who'd thow out the odd snide remark and calling for some junior club game on TG4 stuck on instead. But for small outlay Sky could do some coverage during the summer.
