Netball World Cup to be screened on SuperSport

04 Jul 2019

SuperSport will broadcast the upcoming Netball World Cup, which is due to take place between 12 and 21 July in the UK.

Four teams from the continent will spearhead Africa's challenge at this month's tournament in Liverpool, with South Africa, Malawi, Zimbabwe and Uganda all determined to break the Australasian stranglehold on the trophy.

All 60 matches will be broadcast on SuperSport, concluding with the final on 21 July.

This will be the first time every match can be seen live on SuperSport.

Six of the last seven finals have been contested by world number one Australia and New Zealand, with the exception being in 1995 when South Africa captured a silver medal.

South Africa are currently ranked fifth, followed by Uganda (sixth), Malawi (ninth) and Zimbabwe in 13th, according to the latest netball world ranking released on 1 July.

South Africa start their campaign against Trinidad and Tobago (10th), the only team other than New Zealand and Australia to capture the title, as they did 40 years ago.
