SBS will broadcast the next step of Australia's journey to the 2014 FIFA World Cup when the Socceroos take on Iraq in their next qualifier on Wednesday 17 October Australian time. 

Thanks to a deal struck between Football Federation Australia, Fox Sports and SBS, the match will be broadcast on a one-hour delay free-to-air on SBS ONE, with coverage set to start at 2.00am AEDT. 

Broadcast details

Iraq v Australia, 17 October

:: Delayed on SBS ONE from 2am AEDT

:: Replayed at 7.30pm on SBS TWO, Wednesday 17 October

:: Extended highlights and full match available online

SBS's coverage of the Iraq v Australia match will be hosted by Les Murray, with former Socceroos stars Craig Foster and David Zdrilic providing expert analysis.

In announcing the broadcast arrangement for the Iraq v Australia match, FFA CEO Ben Buckley said: “Once again, I thank our long-term partners and rights holders FOX SPORTS and Foxtel for accommodating this arrangement.

“Last month all parties co-operated to see the Socceroos v Jordan FIFA World Cup qualifier broadcast live on FOX SPORTS and on delay by SBS.

"FFA is currently in advanced discussions with Fox Sports and SBS over the long-term broadcast rights in Australian football.

“As an interim step, the arrangements for the Iraq match show the goodwill inherent in these talks and the way in which all parties are prepared to work collaboratively for the good of Australian football.”
