The Constellation Cup is on the line and the Australian Diamonds want your help in taking back the trophy from New Zealand.
The series is locked together at one-all, so make sure you grab a ticket to the Test matches next month in Adelaide and Melbourne to be there cheering on our girls as they face off against our arch rivals from across the Tasman.
It’s often been said that a parochial home crowd can act as an “unofficial” eighth player out on court and being there is your opportunity to help lift the Diamonds to victory.
Ticketek is the only place where you can purchase tickets to the Test match at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre (October 4) and the historic first ever international game at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena (October 7).
Star goal attack Natalie Medhurst is on track to play her 50th Test for the Diamonds in Adelaide and the proud South Australian would love to see you there in your green and gold.
Then the fourth Test in Melbourne could be the series decider, so where else would you want to be if the Diamonds reclaim the Cup from our arch rivals!
While tickets for the fifth and final Test of the series in Canberra have already sold out, there’s still an opportunity to be close to the action on the day by going along to the Diamonds Live Site, being hosted by Aussie netball legend Sharelle McMahon.
The match will be shown live on a big screen and there will be a special pre-game appearance by Diamonds coach Lisa Alexander.
Plus, it will be the only place you can meet the Australian players afterwards for a photo or autograph.
Diamonds captain Laura Geitz is encouraging fans to secure their seats and help to inspire the team.
“As a netballer, there’s no bigger game than a trans-Tasman Test against the New Zealand Silver Ferns,” Geitz said.
“Regardless of whether it’s for World Cup glory, Commonwealth Games gold or the Constellation Cup title, the passion, intensity and rivalry on the court is like no other in the sport.”
Following the New Zealand series Australia faces off in two Tests against Malawi at Wollongong (October 16) and the Gold Coast (October 19) – their last internationals before next year’s Commonwealth Games.
Australia has never hosted Malawi for a Test Series and the Queens, currently the world’s fifth-ranked nation, are promising to play an exciting and entertaining brand of netball.
