They will broadcast the game on Channel 508, with coverage commencing half an hour before kick-off at 1:30am (AEST) on Sunday morning.
To watch the coverage on ESPN and Foxtel, you will need to ensure you have a valid Foxtel TV subscription, complete with the sports package of channels.

There will be plenty of ways to stream the exclusive ESPN coverage in Australia, and it will depend on your circumstances as to which option will work best for you.
If you already have a TV subscription to Foxtel which includes the sports package, then a live stream of the match is included in your deal through the Foxtel App.
Without TV access to Foxtel, you will be able to use Kayo Sports, which is available from just $25 per month and allows you to access all of Foxtel’s sports channels, as well as other selected events.
