Fox Footy have announced the commentary team for the upcoming inaugural AFL Women’s competition.
The team will be lead by former Channel 10 AFL commentator, Kelli Underwood.
Underwood, who became the first female to call an AFL match in 2009, will be joined by current Fox Footy commentators Adam Papalia and Tanya Armstrong, while Neroli Meadows will host the match days.
Every game of the AFLW season will be broadcast live on Fox Footy, with the season kicking off on February 3, with the Pies and Blues doing battle at Olympic Park Oval.
“This is a landmark moment for women’s football,” Fox Footy’s General Manager, Michael Neill, said.
“Fox Footy will bring the new league to life by beaming every home-and-away match live to fans across the country. We are proud to be partnering with the AFL on providing a platform to showcase these amazing athletes, and to give women’s sport the coverage it deserves.
“Fox Footy is truly the home of the AFL, and the only place on TV to see every home and away match of both pre-season competitions plus every game, of every round, of the 2017 Toyota AFL Premiership season live.
“Across February and March, fans will receive more live action than ever before with 55 pre-season men’s and women’s matches. It’s going to be a massive year, and we can’t wait to get cracking.”
Additional commentators will be announced in the coming months.
