An all-female commentary team will call the W-League Grand Final live this Sunday, 11 April, exclusively on ABC Television and ABC iview.
Former Australian player Grace Gill joins W-League presenter Stephanie Brantz in the commentary box at Kogarah’s Jubilee Stadium in Southern Sydney, to call the final between Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory.
Stephanie Brantz said: “After a fantastic season of the W-League we’re set for one of the most closely contested Grand Finals in its 13-year history. I’m really excited to see how both the young stars and the experienced heads will step up on Sunday.”
Stephanie said she was thrilled to be working with Grace Gill, who was “a star on the football field and in the boardroom and is now emerging as a star of broadcasting.”
Grace Gill said it had been a pleasure working with Stephanie throughout the season. “I’ve long aspired to call a W-League Grand Final,” she said. “To be able to do that with Steph is an exciting end to the season. I’m looking forward to what should be an entertaining game between two quality teams.”
