The 2027 Netball World Cup could be coming to Australian shores.
At the Australian Diamonds farewell luncheon on Friday, Netball Australia announced they would be partnering with the New South Wales Government to bid for the event.
It is part of the NSW Government commitment to bring ‘10 World Cups in 10 Years’ to the state.
“We delivered the most successful Netball World Cup in history here in Sydney in 2015 and our ambition is to lift the bar even higher and bring the world to New South Wales to celebrate netball and women’s sport,” Netball Australia CEO Marne Fechner said.
“With a netball footprint of more than 1.2 million people across Australia, we know how important it is to the netball community and our elite athletes to host another World Cup on home soil."
Australia has hosted the Netball World Cup three times previously with the most recent coming in 2015 when the International Netball Federation choose Sydney to host the tournament over Manchester, England.
Submissions for the 2027 World Cup will likely be made in early 2020.
