Statement On Cricket

Nine is immensely proud of our decades long association between Wide World of Sports and the game of cricket in this country. We wish Cricket Australia and its new broadcast partners well for the future success of the game.

Cricket will continue to be a part of Nine’s schedule into the future with current deals in place covering the next ashes series from England in 2019, the ODI World Cup in the UK in the same year and in 2020 the T20 World Cups to be held in Australia. 

But most of all Nine is excited by our new partnership with Tennis Australia. A partnership that enables us to further evolve our business model into a new future.  A partnership built on common values and vision to mutually build the game and Nine's business as we connect with more audiences the way they choose.

Our focus remains on the cross platform opportunities in front of us and finding the best ways to continue to create value for our shareholders in to the future.
