Football Belongs: Australia's Football Identity, by Optus Sport

by Optus Sport

Welcome to Optus Sport's podcast instalment of the Football Belongs title, with a series charting the cultural threads of Australian society through the lens of nine football matches.


The Football Belongs title was launched by Optus Sport in 2020 to tell the often unheralded stories of Europe’s contribution to Australian football and society.


Hosted by David Davutovic and featuring John Didulica - the inspiration behind the series - as well as a long list of Australian sporting personalities, they will explore how football has played a fundamental role in shaping our nation and examine the game struggles to penetrate the mainstream - to the point that the sport continues to get diminished at every turn.


In December 2021, Football Belongs was named the Best Sports Podcast at the 2021 Australian Podcast Awards.
