The two-week tournament provides some of the biggest marketing moments of the year. Nine is placed to provide brands optimal access to the action, with a media ecosystem that allows marketers to call game, set and match on their campaigns.

No other media business can offer the assets to achieve this, the depth of knowledge or the prestige of an iconic brand such as WWOS.”    

“The team at Powered, Nine’s marketing solutions division, have worked closer than ever before with our tennis partners to create big ideas that are 100% customer-centric and engage their consumers throughout the Australian Open and across their customer life cycle during the year.”

“It starts with daily coverage on and our metro publishing mastheads, giving brands a summer of tennis filled with sport marketing opportunities on Total TV across metro and regional, Digital, Radio and Print, all available in one place.

“Beyond the Australian Open, Tennis on Nine can now take partners right around the globe, as the official broadcaster of Roland Garros, Wimbledon, and the US Open – we’re already talking to a number of partner brands around extending their story across the year of tennis on Nine and we can’t wait.”
