Regional guests amongst record Swifts crowd

Some special regional guests sat amongst the record-breaking 8,021 crowd that filled Allphones Arena last Sunday 2 June for the Blockbuster match between the NSW Swifts and Adelaide Thunderbirds.

Thanks to Netball NSW Major Partner GrainCorp, 100 lucky regional fans were able to enjoy the atmosphere at the Club’s largest regular home game crowd, seeing some of their favourite players live in action.

Guests travelled together for the long  5  hour journey to Sydney from Wagga Wagga and surrounding areas, enjoying a pre-match function hosted by Netball NSW Regional Development Manager Nicole Bowles … and had a special visit from Swifts Assistant Coach Rob Wright and our very own Sporty Swift!

Every person took home a special bag filled with GrainCorp and Swifts goodies, with five guests taking home lucky door prizes, including a customised netball kit bag for the winner’s local Club from GrainCorp.

It was wonderful to have the group at the Swifts game cheering in the stands, and we thank GrainCorp for providing this opportunity to our regional supporters.

GrainCorp are a proud supporter of the regional State League competitions in the Riverina, Northern Inland and West/Central West; and the special bus tour to this game is just another way that our Partners at GrainCorp are showing their support to regional communities and netball.
