The netball world is preparing for a shake up when the World Netball Series kicks off in Manchester on October 9.
The three-day tournament brings together the world’s six best netball nations to battle it out in a modified version of the game.
The new game is being compared to twenty20 cricket and will be played with shorter six-minute quarters, rolling substitutes, shooting from outside the circle and power plays for double scores.
Australia, New Zealand, England, Jamaica, Samoa and Malawi will play five games each over the first two days with the highest scoring teams going head-to-head on the final day.
Netball fans will be seated with fellow countrymen to create a competitive atmosphere.
Fans are encouraged to buy tickets early so they don’t miss out on a seat in the Aussie Posse, England Enclosure, Kiwi Corner, Jamaica Jamboree, Malawi Mezzanine or the Samoa Sector.
The World Netball Series will be played at the M.E.N Arena in Manchester from the 9 -11th October. For tickets please visit www.worldnetballseries.com
