Football’s #1 commentary team is locked in and ready to bring fans a 2021 AFL season that is shaping up as one of the most wide-open premiership races of recent times, live and free on the Home of Footy, the Seven Network.
Seven welcomes back football’s most star-studded line-up in 2021, including the game’s best group of callers – Brian Taylor, James Brayshaw, Hamish McLachlan and Luke Darcy.
Expert commentators Luke Hodge, Wayne Carey, Daisy Pearce, Matthew Richardson, Jobe Watson, Leigh Matthews, Tim Watson, Cameron Ling, Jimmy Bartel and Abbey Holmes are also back, while Abbey Gelmi, Jacqui Felgate, Jude Bolton, Xavier Ellis, Mark Soderstrom, Jason Bennett, Nigel Carmody and Campbell Brown round out football’s best team.
In a massive bonus for fans, two of the game’s biggest superstars – West Coast high-flyer Nic Naitanui and revered Geelong skipper Joel Selwood – will make guest appearances in the Seven commentary box throughout the season.
Managing Director Seven Melbourne and Head of Network Sport, Lewis Martin, said: “A love of the game drives everything we do at Seven and we can’t wait to bring all Australians a 2021 AFL season that promises to be one of the most closely fought in years.
“We have assembled the game’s strongest, most talented and most experienced commentary line-up. After an extraordinary 2020, they’re ready and raring for the new season to start.
“One of the greatest broadcasters of all time, Bruce McAvaney, is stepping back from calling games but rest assured he will still be an important part of our on-air team. Bruce remains a vital part of Seven’s AFL, horse racing, the Olympic Games and other special events,” he said.
