The media team commentary moves to Calon online and FM...

Wrexham Football Club and Calon FM are delighted to announce that Wrexham AFC's football commentary will be live on the Wrexham based community radio station for the 2017-2018 season and beyond.
The football club has not renewed its long standing agreement with EFL Digital meaning that 'Wrexham PlayerHD' will close at the end of this season. We will advise current subscribers about their subscriptions shortly.
The Media Team's commentary will be free to air next season on Calon 105fm, Calon FM's app, the tunein app and online via the club website. We will be covering every game, home and away with our team of experienced commentators.

Carl Hogan, Wrexham Football Club Media Manager said, "I wanted to move our commentary over to Calon FM last season, but our contract with EFL Digital didn't allow me to do so. I'm really happy to finally get this over the line, I believe our fantastic commentaries deserve a wider audience, and I believe being on the Calon platform will certainly deliver that. 

"Also, I believe our commentaries should be free of charge for our supporters, which is why I have been working so hard to make this to happen. Next season will signify more choice for Wrexham commentary listeners as we go head to head in the free-to-air market. I urge all supporters to get on board with our new commentary partner Calon FM and, support our commentary sponsors and advertisers."

Katherine Wade, Calon FM Station Editor commented, "We have a great relationship with the football club with our Dragonheart show so we're delighted to be offering our listeners live match commentaries from next season. 

"With coverage available on 105fm, our website and also our mobile app, we're really excited that Wrexham fans both locally and further afield will be able to tune in."

Mark Griffiths, Wrexham Football Club's long standing commentator said, "I'm delighted that our commentaries will be on Calon FM next season. We value our PlayerHD listeners, they can now join us over on Calon FM next season and I'm also looking forward to welcoming new listeners to the commentary."
