Record ticket sales for Season Opener 2020

The Vitality Netball Superleague (VNSL) Season Opener 2020 has seen record ticket sales making it one of the fastest-selling VNSL events in the competitions history.

With 95% of tickets having already sold for the competitions opening round on 22 February at Arena Birmingham, it is set to be an exceptional day of world-class with all 10 teams featuring in front of over 8000 spectators.

The ticket sales see a 53% increase on what was sold last year for the event last year.

Fran Connolly, CEO of England Netball, said: “It is absolutely clear that success at an elite level drives growth across many aspects of the sport and it’s hugely reassuring to see the successes of the Vitality Roses now filtering down to positively impact our domestic ticket-buying audiences within the Vitality Netball Superleague. To capitalise on this success we are focusing a lot of our efforts on supporting and growing the Vitality Netball Superleague, which sits just below the international level of the sport. We want this to be the best women’s league in the country and to get more people engaged with the competition.

“Seeing that almost all tickets for Season Opener have sold means we are on the right track and that netball in this country has never been in a better position. We’ve been working with our venues to ensure as many fans as possible can see elite netball in 2020, with an additional 10,000 tickets being made available to spectators across all of our upcoming events. Looking ahead to the future, we’re already in conversations to ensure that we can continue delivering a fantastic experience for spectators in some of the country’s largest and most prestigious indoor arenas.

“I am delighted with how popular both of our upcoming events have been and I can’t wait to see it continue to grow.”

After a sensational 2019 season culminating in the thrilling Grand Final where Manchester Thunder were named champions there is plenty to look forward to in 2020. It promises to be another season full of drama and excitement as the 10 VNSL sides set out on their journey to finish in the top four and challenge to be crowned the 15th Vitality Netball Superleague Champions.
