Commonwealth Games 2018: Ch9’s accreditation suspended

Flag bearer Anna Meares at the Opening Ceremony in Glasgow in 2014.THE Nine Network has had its Commonwealth Games accreditation suspended after broadcasting footage of Saturday’s opening ceremony dress rehearsal.

The network broadcast footage of the rehearsal on Sunday night in what organisers deemed to be a breach of news access rules.

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation said Nine’s accreditation had been suspended until further notice for the breach, as it attempts to keep aspects of the performance under wraps until Wednesday’s performance.

Comment has been sought from the Nine Network.
