Super Netball Commits To Far North Queensland Matches

S
uncorp Super Netball has announced a partnership with the Queensland Government that will see two matches of the 2020 season played in Far North Queensland.

Two matches between rounds 10-14 will be confirmed within the coming weeks, with one match each to be played in Cairns and Townsville.

Suncorp Super Netball CEO, Chris Symington, said the league is excited to play in Cairns and Townsville for the first time with this partnership.

“We know there are lots of Suncorp Super Netball fans right throughout North Queensland so we’re excited that the 2020 season has provided the opportunity to bring games to the region,” Symington said.

“The league thanks the Queensland Government, Cairns Regional Council and Townsville City Council for their ongoing support of the 2020 Suncorp Super Netball season.

“We also thank our principal partner, Suncorp, and other commercial partners who have ensured Suncorp Super Netball continues to thrive and extend beyond the competition’s current footprint.

“We look forward to confirming the details of these matches and associated community activity in the very near future,” he said.

Queensland premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, said Queensland had become the home of sport in Australia in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Queenslanders have done a great job responding to this health crisis, and that’s why we’re able to focus on our economic recovery and create jobs,” Palaszczuk said.

“Netball is a great game, and this is great news for Cairns and Townsville.

“If you get the chance you should definitely go and see the game,” she said.
