2017 ANL Fixtures released

Netball Australia has today released the fixture for the 2017 Australian Netball League (ANL), to commence on Saturday 18 February, coinciding with Round 1 of Suncorp Super Netball (SSN).

The newly revised format will see eight teams compete over seven rounds of competition, with a finals series to take place on the weekend of the 8-9 of April in Perth, WA.

NSW’s ANL Clubs – Netball NSW Waratahs and newly introduced Canberra GIANTS – will be two or eight teams to contest this year’s competition, which will include QLD Fusion, Southern Force, Territory Storm, Tasmanian Magpies, Western Sting and reigning Premiers, Victorian Fury.

NNSW Waratahs will host both the Force (Round 2) and Magpies (Round 6) at Genea Netball Centre, with the Canberra GIANTS will play the Waratahs (Round 1), Sting (Round 2), Force (Round 5) and Fusion (Round 7) at home, in both NSW and ACT.

As per the 2016 season, two matches will be played each round with fixture scheduling designed to allow SSN athletes to participate in ANL matches, ensuring that SSN training partners can obtain regular match play during the SSN season.

In 2017, matches will take place in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth; with games to also be held in Alice Springs, the Sunshine Coast and Launceston. 12 games will be held either prior to or directly following a SSN match.
