Australia’s premier netball league, Suncorp Super Netball, returns this Saturday, April 27, LIVE and FREE at 3.00pm on Nine and 9Now.
After an electrifying finals series in 2018, Suncorp Super Netball’s third season will again showcase the best netballers from Australia and around the world.
Netball fans can follow their favourite teams and enjoy four live games a week with coverage starting from 3.00pm on Saturdays and 1.00pm on Sundays on Nine, 9Now and Telstra TV.
Fresh from her appearance on The Block, former Australian netball vice-captain, Bianca Chatfield, will be joining Nine’s commentary team along with Collingwood netball and AFLW star Sharni Layton.
Queensland star and golden girl of netball, Laura Geitz, who led the Firebirds to back-to-back premierships, will be on the sideline, bring her expertise and expert comments to the coverage.
With a knee injury keeping her sidelined for the season, Abbey McCulloch of the NSW Swifts will take time out from her captain duties to provide insight to the coverage as a current player. Megan Anderson, a former Diamond and current Australian assistant coach, will also join the on-air team.
Hosting all the action will be Clint Stanaway, Aislin Kriukelis and Julie Snook, joined by these expert commentators: netball legends Liz Ellis, Cath Cox, Annie Sargent and Sue Gaudion, plus Nine’s Seb Costello and Tom Rehn. Sideline reporters will include Paddy Sweeney and Jack Berketa.
This season there will be a four-week break between Round 9 and 10 as the competition’s best netballers travel to Liverpool in England for the Vitality Netball World Cup 2019. Nine will exclusively broadcast the World Cup live and free from Friday, July 12, on Nine, 9Gem and 9Now.
Nine’s Head of Netball, Keeley Devery, said: “After a thrilling Grand Final, an exciting trade period and a long pre-season, I couldn’t be more excited to see how the third season of Suncorp Super Netball plays out on Nine.”
Former Australian captain and Nine commentator, Liz Ellis, said: “Season three of Suncorp Super Netball is the most exciting yet. With some fantastic international players and emerging young guns taking to the court for the first time, I cannot wait to call all the action.”
Nine broadcast Suncorp Super Netball in 2018 to exceptional ratings and a new legion of fans, culminating in an action-packed Grand Final which saw the Sunshine Coast Lightning going back-to-back to defeat West Coast Fever 62-59.
Suncorp Super Netball will also be broadcast this year on 9Now, Telstra TV and the Netball Live app.
