GEMMA MCCAW JOINS THE SKY SPORT COMMENTARY TEAM

SKY Sport is delighted to announce that former Black Stick Gemma McCaw has joined SKY Sport as part of an all-female commentary team for SKY Sport’s host broadcast coverage of the Sentinel Homes Women’s Hockey World League Final, Auckland 2017 this November.

SKY Director of Sport, Richard Last, says: “We’re extremely happy to welcome Gemma into the SKY Sport team. Having played 246 games for the Black Sticks she will no doubt be an incredibly valuable part of the commentary team, able to offer insights that only an ex-player would have. We think she’s going to do a fantastic job and I’m sure Kiwis will really embrace her being a part of our coverage.”

As host broadcaster of the Sentinel Homes Hockey World League Final, Auckland 2017, Gemma will be joined by an all-female SKY Sport commentary team of experts including lead commentator Rikki Swannell, presenter Bernadine Oliver-Kerby and former Black Sticks Sandy Hitchcock and Katie Glynn.

Gemma McCaw says: “This is a really exciting opportunity to be part of SKY Sport’s coverage of this great tournament. When this opportunity presented itself after recently retiring, I jumped at the chance to be involved and I can’t wait to get stuck in with this awesome team!”

The Sentinel Homes Hockey World League Final, Auckland 2017, takes place at North Harbour Hockey Stadium between 17-26 November and will be LIVE on SKY Sport 4.

Featuring eight of the world’s best national hockey teams, they will battle it over 22 matches in 10 days to be crowned Hockey World League champions.

The winner of this tournament will be guaranteed qualification for next year’s Hockey Champions Trophy, while vital FIH Hero World Ranking points will also be offered depending on the final standings.
