Netball Australia looks to secure 2027 Netball World Cup for Sydney

Netball Australia looks to secure 2027 Netball World Cup for Sydney
June 30, 2020

Netball Australia has announced that it is to bid to host the Netball World Cup for a fourth time, with Sydney proposed to be the home of a planned 2027 tournament.

Only days after Australia and New Zealand were named hosts of the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup, a statement from Netball Australia Chief Executive, Marne Fechner advised "2027 will be Netball Australia's 100th anniversary, so it would be an honour to host the global netball community in Sydney to help us celebrate this significant milestone - to recognise how far netball in Australia and around the world has come," NA chief executive Marne Fechner said in a statement.

"Last week we celebrated the fantastic news Australia and New Zealand will host the FIFA Women's World Cup in 2023 (so) let's hope we continue that winning way with our compelling bid and bring the world's best netballers back to Sydney, Australia in 2027."

Australia has previously hosted the tournament on three occasions.

It was held in Sydney in 1991 and 2015 - with Australia winning both events - and Perth was host in 1967 when New Zealand won the tournament.

Fechner added “having last hosted the Netball World Cup in Sydney in 2015, we've experienced first-hand the incredibly far-reaching impact that an event of this calibre can have on a nation.

"The legacy for women's sport and netball, both within our region and for the global netball family, was significant.

"Our vision for 2027 is to deliver the most successful women's world cup of the modern era; one that powers a lasting global legacy for netball and women, showcases the game's best athletes, and welcomes the international netball family to Sydney yet again."

The International Netball Federation is set to announce the winning host nation by the end of the year.

Cape Town is the host city for the 2023 tournament, where New Zealand will look to defend the world championship it won in the UK, last year.
