Netball Australia has launched the inaugural Suncorp Super Netball pre-season tournament to be known as the Suncorp #TeamGirls Cup, announcing it will take place from 8-10 March in Brisbane.

The Suncorp #TeamGirls Cup will bring the world’s best netballers together in the first event to take place at the new Queensland State Netball Centre in Brisbane. All eight Suncorp Super Netball teams will battle it out across three days of matches.

The tournament will see two pools of four teams play in a round-robin style format before going head-to-head with the opposing pool on the final day of play. Each match will consist of 10-minute quarters and each team will play four matches over the three days.

There are four sessions of match play scheduled – one on Friday evening, two on Saturday (day and night) and one on Sunday. Four matches per session, all teams playing each session. A full fixture for the Suncorp #TeamGirls Cup can be found here.

Netball Australia Executive General Manager of Events Chris Symington said the Suncorp #TeamGirls Cup is an exciting new initiative that will not only provide all Suncorp Super Netball teams with a league-organised pre-season competition, but also give fans another opportunity to witness their teams in action.

“With the Suncorp Super Netball league heading into its third season, we felt it was time to introduce a formalised pre-season element to the competition and we’re really excited to be launching the Suncorp #TeamGirls Cup this year with all eight teams,” he said.

“There was a lot of player movement during the off-season, so this tournament will give fans a chance to see their new-look Suncorp Super Netball teams hit the court 50 days out from the official season kicking off.”

All Suncorp #TeamGirls Cup matches will be broadcast live on the Netball Live app and Telstra TV and the Suncorp #TeamGirls Cup Grand Final will be broadcast live on Channel 9 on Sunday 10 March.

Tournament Fixture:

Pool A: Sunshine Coast Lightning, Queensland Firebireds, Melbourne Vixens, Adelaide Thunderbirds

Pool B: West Coast Fever, GIANTS Netball, NSW Swifts, Magpies Netball
