See What We’re Made Of – 2019 Season Launches
The league’s eight team captains gathered in Melbourne today to launch what is going to be the fiercest season yet, along with the 2019 Suncorp Super Netball campaign ‘See What We’re Made Of’.
The campaign showcases the endless hours lifting weights, running laps and shooting goals, along with the extreme mental preparation that the athletes put in behind the scenes that builds the elite teams and players that we get to witness week in, week out.
Netball Australia CEO Marne Fechner said if the Suncorp #TeamGirls Cup pre-season tournament was anything to go by, Suncorp Super Netball fans are in for a huge 2019 season.
“With so much player movement in the off-season, we’ve seen quite a large change to teams right across the league, so team rivalries and the intensity and fierceness of the competition will only go up another notch this season – teams, and individual athletes for that matter, are going to be keen to show us what they’re made of,” she said.
“Last year, we saw more people attending and viewing the Suncorp Super Netball competition than ever before and we look forward to seeing this increase yet again in 2019 with matches being brought to more locations across Australia and Channel 9 and Telstra ensuring that fans never miss a match broadcast.”
Suncorp Super Netball starts on Saturday 27th April, kicking off with a double-header at Melbourne Arena at 3pm on Saturday (Vixens v Firebirds and Magpies v Sunshine Coast Lightning), a NSW derby on Sunday between the GIANTS and Swifts and capped off with a Thunderbirds home game against the West Coast Fever.
Fans can watch every match live on the big screen with two matches on Channel 9 and two matches on Telstra TV (exclusive to Telstra broadband customers). Every match will also be available live via subscription in the Netball Live Official app.
