Diamonds to shine on international stage

As part of the partnership between Netball Australia, Telstra and Nine, netball fans will have unprecedented access to international fixtures – live across the Nine Network and Netball Live, with on demand replays available via Telstra TV, Netball Live and 9Now.

Covering all the Quad Series and Constellation Cup action will be Nine’s expert commentary team, Australian netball legends Liz Ellis, Laura Geitz and Cath Cox, in addition to Sue Gaudion, who will be joined by host Clint Stanaway.

Netball Australia’s Chief Executive Marne Fechner said “after a blockbuster year of Suncorp Super Netball, we can’t wait to see our international stars on show in the Netball Quad Series and Constellation Cup.

“We are thrilled that our broadcast with Nine and Telstra will provide Samsung Diamonds fans the ability to watch the best in the world go head to head from across the globe, live and on demand.”

Former Australian captain and Nine Netball commentator Liz Ellis said: “Four of the best teams in the world will square off in a host of international grudge matches. The Aussies love nothing more than beating New Zealand and they will have the chance to do it both home and away.

“The Quad Series and Constellation Cup will feature a real mate versus mate vibe when the stars of Super Netball get the chance to settle old scores. Plenty of pride is on the line and some tough netball is going to be played. I’m excited to see it all come to life on Nine.”

The Netball Quad Series and Constellation Cup will also be broadcast via 9Now, and the Netball Live app, with replays available via 9Now and Telstra TV.
