In just two weeks’ time a new era of netball will begin, with round one of Suncorp Super Netball.
A star-studded commentary team-up has been confirmed, including Australian netball legends Liz Ellis, Anne Sargeant, Cath Cox, Sharelle McMahon, as well as former coach and netball personality Sue Gaudion as expert commentators.
Hosting all the action will be Nine’s Sylvia Jeffreys, Clint Stanaway and Seb Costello.
Courtside reporters will include Nine sports presenters Julie Snook, Tom Mitchell, Christine Ahern, Jack Berketa and Paddy Sweeney.
“Having been both a player and a broadcaster, I can say with absolute certainty that fans will love this supercharged broadcast of netball,” Nine’s Head of Netball, Keeley Devery said.
We’ve stayed true to the hard-core fans as well as opening the door for people who just like to watch hard and fast athletes at the top of their game – going point-for-point over 60 heart-stopping minutes.”
Former Australian captain and 9GEM commentator Liz Ellis said: “It’s so exciting to see our sport step up another level. With Nine’s support, and having netball on television every Saturday night, it is an impressive recognition of the game. I can’t wait to get behind the microphone and call the action.”
Fans will be able to watch two games per week live and in prime-time on 9GEM, with the remaining two games live through Telstra TV (replayed on 9Gem). All games will be available live via subscription through the Netball Live app, and replayed on demand via 9Now and Telstra TV.
It’ll be all on the line when Suncorp Super Netball begins on 18 February.
