WNBL lands exciting new broadcast deal

THE WNBL's new two-year broadcast deal with the Nine Network formally announced today means fans through the 2022-23 and 2023-24 seasons will be able to see more free-to-air games and action than ever, the league also following the NBA, NCAA, WNBA, NBL and FIBA by partnering with ESPN for additional hoops coverage.

Australia's greatest basketball player of all time, Lauren Jackson, will be back at Southside Flyers, headlining the action when the WNBL tips off on November 2.

For the next two seasons (at least), all 84 WNBL regular season matches and all finals will be broadcast live, with 68 games on Nine’s free streaming service 9Now, and 16 on ESPN.

The renowned sports network will not only broadcast WNBL games, but exclusively spotlight a featured Game of The Week live every Wednesday night.

ESPN will also air the WNBL Finals in full, with selected matches also available on 9Now.

Additionally, both ESPN and Nine will profile the league through on-air programs and digital channels, providing a significant platform for the WNBL to increase its visibility and reach. 

Eight of the Opals selected to represent Austrralia later this month at the FIBA World Cup in Sydney, will be in regular weekly WNBL action this season, with the opening match featuring a revisit of the 2022 Grand Final when champion Melbourne Boomers visit the Lynx in Perth.

“This deal gives us a home for the next two-years, which provides us with an enormous opportunity
to really lift the profile of the league, the clubs, and the incredible athletes that are part of it,” WNBL Head Christy Collier-Hill said of the new broadcast deal.

“The WNBL highlights some of the best basketball players in the world – Australian Opals, WNBA and international superstars. We want as many people as possible to be able to see these amazing
athletes in action on and off the court, and this new broadcast deal provides us with that
