All ten Vitality Netball Superleague (VNSL) sides are being represented at the Vitality Netball World Cup in Liverpool this July. When Malawi face Singapore at the M&S Bank Arena, Liverpool, on Saturday 13 July, one player who featured in the 2019 VNSL season will hope to star.

The Lowdown

2019 will be the Queens’ sixth appearance at a World Cup since 1995 with Liverpool being the fourth consecutive World Cup Malawi has played at. They achieved their highest finish to date in 2007 in Auckland, when they came fifth.

Singapore qualified for the Vitality Netball World Cup 2019 by finishing second behind Sri Lanka at the Regional Qualifier – Asia in September 2018. Currently ranked 26th in the INF world rankings, Singapore will compete at their 10th World Cup in Liverpool, having hosted the event twice in 1983 and most recently in 2011.

Singapore first participated at the 1967 World Cup in Perth, Australia; where they finished eighth out of eight participating nations. This was Singapore’s highest World Cup finish, but their best positional finish was 12th at the 1999 World Cup in Christchurch, New Zealand when 26 nations participated.

VNSL Players Involved

  • Joyce Mvula (Malawi Queens & Manchester Thunder)

2019 Vitality Netball Superleague champion, Joyce Mvula, has been called up to the Malawi squad. The Manchester Thunder shooter had an exceptional season, finishing third for goals scored and with a shooting percentage of 90%. Her performances helped the Black and Yellows to their third VNSL title. She also won the Sky Sports Fans’ Player of the Year Award.

Head-to-Head

Malawi and Singapore have faced each other three times in the sport’s pinnacle event with the Queens coming out on top in two of the three meetings.
