Sydney to host Netball World Cup

The Emerald City has been picked to host the Netball World Cup in 2027, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced yesterday. After waving its hand about and yelling they were ”here if you need“, it will be the 3rd time Sydney has hosted – a decision Netball Australia chair Paolina Hunt hopes will “refresh” the game in Oz. Our world #1 ranked Diamonds have been on a losing streak for the past few tournaments, including last month’s Constellation Cup loss – their first since 2013. But we’ve got 6 years to sort it out, and Oz has won the World Cups held previously in Sydney in 1991 and 2015, so bring on the home-court advantage… Until then, there’s next year’s Commonwealth Games in England and the World Cup in South Africa in 2023 to tide fans over.
