This is the third time the quadrennial event has been held in England.  The inaugural World Championship took place in Eastbourne in 1963 with the tournament returning to English shores in Birmingham in 1995.

England is proud of its strong netball history; however, the Netball World Cup 2019 is looking to the future and will capitalise on both the growing interest in women’s sport in the UK and the increasing importance of interactive media to provide netball fans with a unique experience that will take them closer to the action and their heroines than ever before.

Sixteen teams from across the continents will compete for Netball’s ultimate prize.  The teams will be selected through both rankings and regional qualifying tournaments and confirmed approximately one year prior to the event.  The top six world ranked teams will automatically qualify for Netball World Cup 2019 and they will be joined by the top two teams who qualify from each of the continental regions:  Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe and Oceania.

Ticket information will be available from Spring 2018.  Join Our Club for more information at http://www.nwc2019.co.uk/our-fans/register/
