Nine’s inaugural year broadcasting the all new Suncorp Super Netball competition has surpassed all expectations. A total of 4.73 million Australians tuned into the series, with a national average audience of 447,000 watching the Grand Final between the Western Sydney Giants and Sunshine Coast Lightning. This was a massive 81% increase on Ten’s coverage of the ANZ Championships grand final last year.
Nine has completely reinvented the way in which Australian’s connects with Netball in 2017, and it’s set to get even better next year with Suncorp Super Netball graduating to the main stage – with two live matches every weekend. The best netballers in the world will converge on Australian shores from April to August, with two huge games at 3.00pm Saturday and 1.00pm Sunday.
