Silver Ferns to play in Southland

Updated: Oct 30, 2021

The world champion Silver Ferns will play in Southland for the first time since 2017 this October. Game three of the Constellation Cup against the currently number one ranked Australian Diamonds will take place at ILT Stadium Southland in Invercargill on Sunday, October 18.

It is the first time the national team has played in Southland since defeating the Diamonds at Stadium Southland 57-47 three years ago.

The match will be the first home game during the four-match Constellation Cup, and will follow the Cadbury Netball Quad Series with games against Australia, South Africa and England at home the month prior.

The final match of the Constellation Cup series will be played in Auckland on October 21.

Netball New Zealand Head of Events and International, Kate Agnew, said there was plenty to look forward to during the matches later this year.

“These are two great events against the best international netball opposition. As world champions, there is a target on the Silver Ferns every time they take the court, but I know they’d love nothing more than to add the Netball Quad Series title and the coveted Constellation Cup to the trophy cabinet.”

The Silver Ferns have already won the Netball Nations Cup this year in England, beating England, South Africa and Jamaica.

Tickets for 2020 events will go on sale later this year, with full details still to be announced.
