Netball World Cup 2019 is the 15th edition of the premier international netball tournament and will take place in Liverpool from 12-21 July 2019. This is the third time the quadrennial event has been held in England – the inaugural World Championship (as it was known then) 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 in autumn 2018. 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.
Team and player details will be posted here when confirmed so keep a look out in autumn 2018.
Netball World Cup 2019’s vision is to host the ‘Best World Cup in Female Sport’. We will not only empower women but provide an environment where they can be themselves and revel in shared successes on and off the court.
