SBS football broadcaster Les Murray dies at 71

Football broadcasting legend Les Murray has died at the age of 71.

For decades Les Murray was the face and voice of Australian football. Known as ‘Mr Football’, he has been largely credited with making the World Game part of Australian culture.

Born László Ürge, Murray immigrated to Australia in 1956 as an 11-year-old, as his family escaped Hungary amidst communist Russia’s occupation. In 2015 he told SBS that people smugglers helped them escape.

The family first landed in Darwin, before eventually being bussed to a migrant camp near Wagga Wagga.

As an SBS football commentator and presenter, he covered eight World Cups, before retiring in 2014. He has also been inducted into the FFA Football Hall of Fame.

SBS is sad to advise that earlier today Les Murray passed away after a long period of illness.

Les will be remembered not just for his 35 year contribution to football in Australia, but for being a much-loved colleague, mentor and friend who has left a unique legacy. To say he will sorely missed is an understatement.

Many Australians know Les as Mr Football, who began working with SBS when it launched as a television broadcaster in 1980. His role went far beyond being a football commentator. The growth, popularity and success of football in Australia today is absolutely a reflection of his passion and advocacy for the game that he loved.
