Two news team were scheduled to be announced to join the competition in 2019 by the end of October but that timeline came into question after the FFA’s extraordinary general meeting on Tuesday, where chairman Steven Lowy announced his depature.
O’Rourke told Drive with Billy McGee and Mieke Buchan that timeline wouldn’t change despite speculation around the date being pushed back.
