This weekend the Australian summer will come to an end, and with that comes hope that there will be relief for large parts of the country following the most devastating bushfire season our country has ever faced.
Australia are hoping to secure their 12th Netball World Cup victory on Monday morning (AEST) when they do battle with arch rivals New Zealand in the 2019 final.
The New Zealanders have taken the cup home four times, most recently in 2003, and are the only other nation – aside from 1979 joint-winners Trinidad and Tobago – to win the tournament.
In fact, since the 1991 tournament when the competition moved from a round-robin format to a knockout finals series, seven of eight finals have been played between these two nations.
If you want to watch the match, then you’re in the right place – we have all the info you need here to follow the game live.
If you’re planning to watch the match live on TV in Australia then you have only one option which is to tune in through the official broadcaster, Channel 9.
They will begin their coverage 15 minutes before the first centre pass is scheduled, meaning they are on air from 1:30am (AEST).
They will broadcast the match on 9Gem, which is available in high definition on Channel 95 and standard definition on Channel 92.
However, this is something that might vary a bit from state to state – so it’s a good idea to have a squiz at your local guide before settling in for the match.
Want to live stream that match instead? The good news is that you can find Channel Nine’s coverage online for free.
Simply use the 9Now streaming service. You’ll need to sign up with a valid email address, but there’s no cost to you.
