AFL: EJ Whitten Legends 2019

EJ Whitten 3

The Gearhouse Broadcast Australia team recently supported the EJ Whitten 2019 Legends game at AAMI Park in Melbourne. Held on Friday 30 August, the game saw some of the greatest AFL champions take to field alongside a number of celebrities to compete in a state of origin challenge to raise funds for the EJ Whitten Foundation.

EJ Whitten is considered by many as one of the most complete footballers ever to play the game, and he was also a larger-than-life character loved for his caring nature, unique character and common touch. Following his early passing in 1995, the EJ Whitten Foundation was set up to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer. Since its inception, the Foundation has raised over $13.5 million for men’s health programs and prostate cancer research and treatment – contributing to the EJ Whitten Foundation Prostate Cancer Research Centre at Epworth and a number of other research facilities and treatment centres.

Gearhouse Broadcast is delighted to have supported the 2019 Legends game, deploying its ground-breaking SportsCom Umpire communication system free of charge. SportsCom provides communications between on-field and off-field match officials, generating content to be used in the broadcast mix, as well as providing seamless communications between the ground and remote match officials potentially based anywhere in the world. The Gearhouse team included Andrew Henderson and Jess May.


On 31 October 2019, the four leading broadcast and production houses Gearhouse Broadcast, Hyperactive Broadcast, Input Media and Chief Entertainment owned by Gravity Media Group started trading under the brand name of ‘Gravity Media’. All Gravity Media companies around the world are making this transition and will now go to market as a single brand with a bold new look and purpose.
