Fox Netball returns this weekend to cover new season of Suncorp Super Netball

It’s a refreshed league, with new team Melbourne Mavericks and new commentators joining Fox Netball.

Fox Netball returns this weekend, when the 2024 Suncorp Super Netball season launches on Saturday 13 April.

Fans can stream every game live and on-demand, with select games in 4K on Kayo Sports, also available on Hubbl.

The sport is back after an off-season following the highs of a World Cup win by the Australian Diamonds. There were challenges aplenty though, with the loss of private and government funding. The code also lost its CEO Kelly Ryan who quit after two years of running the sport.

There was subsequent board turnover and the settlement of a long-running players’ pay dispute.

But here we are – the start of a new season. A season that boasts a new team – Melbourne Mavericks, owned by Craig Hutchison’s Sports Entertainment Group.

Lots of transfer action and the new team means fans will be taking guidance from the Fox Netball commentary teams.

They will work alongside Hannah Hollis, Cath Cox, Bianca Chatfield, Kim Green, Sue Gaudion, Caitlin Bassett, Sam Poolman, Madison Browne, Emily Beaton, Kierra Trompf, Sharon Finnan-White and Ben Homer for the 2024 season.

To mark the launch of the new season, Fox Netball’s Hollis, Cox, Chatfield and Green joined Kiera Austin, Jo Weston and Zara Walters from the Melbourne Vixens, and Amy Parmenter, Eleanor Cardwell, Sasha Glasgow, and Liv Lewis from the Melbourne Mavericks at a fan community day at Parkville State Netball and Hockey Centre, Melbourne.

Fox Netball executive producer, Erin Ferreira, said: “In 2023, Fox Netball elevated its coverage of Suncorp Super Netball to new levels, resulting in a record-breaking Grand Final contest, where the Adelaide Thunderbirds clinched their first premiership in extra-time.

“We’re excited to take this partnership to the next level this year through our unparalleled game day access, top-tier commentary team and impactful storytelling from the game’s biggest names.”
