With the Vitality Netball World Cup 2023 fast approaching, New Zealand Media and Entertainment (NZME) is excited to announce it will be the exclusive radio broadcaster of the highly anticipated international sporting event.
The exclusive partnership will see NZME’s two key sport audio brands, GOLD SPORT and The Alternative Commentary Collective (The ACC), broadcasting all Silver Ferns and final game matches from the tournament, helping keep Kiwi supporters up to date on the sporting action straight from Cape Town, South Africa.
NZME Chief Radio Officer, Jason Winstanley, says netball is an absolute staple for New Zealand sporting fans and the company is looking forward to delivering comprehensive coverage from the tournament.
“NZME has a proud legacy of broadcasting netball both domestically and internationally for well over a decade, and it’s a huge privilege that we’ll continue doing so for the upcoming Vitality Netball World Cup 2023.
“GOLD SPORT will keep listeners up to date with all the play, along with expert analysis from legendary ex Silver Ferns player and coach Yvonne Willering and well-known commentator and broadcaster Malcolm Jordan. Plus, if listeners are after a slightly different commentating experience, they can tune into the humorous team from The ACC,” says Winstanley.
The ACC General Manager, Mike Lane, says The ACC crew are looking forward to providing expert commentary and entertainment as the mighty Silver Ferns aim to defend their title.
“The ACC offers a unique and memorable sporting experience, and the team are absolutely stoked to be sharing their spin on the Vitality Netball World Cup 2023,” says Lane.
Emily Travers, NZME Head of Commercial Sport, Partnership & Events, says this new partnership will create exciting opportunities for businesses wanting to engage with keen sporting fans.
“We know Kiwis love their netball and through this new partnership, we’ll be able to help businesses get in front of this passionate audience throughout the tournament.”
The Vitality Netball World Cup 2023 will run from Friday 28 July to Saturday 6 August.
