    Probably for the first time in history, FootyFM broadcasted live commentary of the 2013 Toyota AFL Grand Final in 10 languages. 20 amateur commentators were selected who bunkered down at ‘FootifyFM Headquarters’ to call the most anticipated match of the year in their native tongue.

    The broadcast languages were Arabic, Croatian, French, Japanese, Madarin, Spanish, German, Greek, Punjabi and Turkish on 10 seperate streams.

    The Punjabi commentators were Harbir Singh Kang and Gurtej Singh who captured the audience with their witty commentary in the vernacular language.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
