Six Suncorp Super Netball clubs including players, staff, partners, family members and umpires will relocate to Adelaide to ensure the continuation of the season amid the challenging landscape of COVID-19.
The Melbourne Vixens, Collingwood Magpies, NSW Swifts and GIANTS Netball will head to the City of Churches on Thursday, while Queensland Firebirds – who have headed home for a brief stint from Victoria – and Sunshine Coast Lightning will travel to Adelaide on Friday.
West Coast Fever remain in Perth.
The South Australian Government appear to have thrown monetary support behind the competition and the SSN thank the government and SA Health for its support.
The league is working through the Round 11 fixture and is considering all options, including a condensed season.
Netball Australia CEO Kelly Ryan said the league will provide an update on the fixture as soon as possible.
“We have moved quickly and decisively as the coronavirus situation develops,” she said.
“We have worked closely with the clubs to determine this is the best immediate option to ensure the season is completed, with the wellbeing of our athletes at the forefront of the decision-making process.
“I’d like to thank our players, coaches, staff, officials and umpires for their willingness to relocate to deliver a full, 60 game season of Suncorp Super Netball.”
