On the Ball, the Special Broadcasting Service's flagship soccer programme, aired on Sundays during the National Soccer League season. Hosted by iconic broadcaster, Les Murray, the show regularly included the game's most prominent and celebrated figures, including regular panelist, Socceroos legend Johnny Warren.
For fans of the NSL, and those brave enough to battle the governance and administrative challenges of the day, On the Ball was compulsory viewing. Guests included national team coaches, players (local and international), administrators and veteran journalists.
It was not uncommon for Murray and Warren to hit those on air with the hard questions. When Murray was not in the host's chair, Kyle Patterson did not shy away.
One the Ball will be remembered for embracing the game when the big commercial networks chose to ignore it. The programme's many guests will profess, Australian football has not seen anything like it before or since.
By wearing this design, you pay tribute to the late Les Murray and Johnny Warren, and SBS. Australia's spiritual home of football.
