Netball Australia reveals name and fixture list for new national league

Netball Australia reveals name and fixture list for new national league
November 7, 2016

Australia’s new domestic netball league will be known as Suncorp Super Netball.

Having last month signed a five year principal partnership with banking and insurance group Suncorp, Netball Australia today revealed the league’s new branding.

Replacing the axed trans-Tasman ANZ Championship, Australia’s stand-alone eight-team competition will commence in February 2017.

In a statement, Netball Australia Chief Executive Kate Palmer explained “Suncorp Super Netball will be a game changer; not just for netball, not just for women’s sport, but for all sports fans around this country and beyond.

“Right from the outset, we have been committed to creating something extraordinary with our new national league.

“Suncorp Super Netball will showcase our sport at its absolute best. Bold, confident, strong and fiercely competitive.”

In addition to revealing the league name and brand identity, Netball Australia has announced the full 2017 fixture list, which commences on Saturday 18th February with a blockbuster weekend featuring the three new local derbies (GIANTS Netball v NSW Swifts, Melbourne Vixens v Collingwood Magpies and Queensland Firebirds v Sunshine Coast Lightning), together with a classic state versus state showdown (Adelaide Thunderbirds and West Coast Fever).

Being played across 13 venues, the competition will feature two prime time Saturday night matches every week, with the remaining two matches scheduled in the popular Friday night and Sunday afternoon timeslots.

The home and away season will be played over 14 weeks, with all eight clubs playing each other once at home, and once away. This will be followed by a three week Finals Series, to be contested by the top four-ranked teams.

The inaugural Suncorp Super Netball Grand Final will be held on Saturday 17 June.

 Fans will be able to catch every match live on the big screen with two matches on Channel 9 and two matches on Telstra TV (exclusive to Telstra broadband customers).

Every match will also be available live via subscription to the official league app, available in 2017.
