In order to ensure the 2021 campaign could be completed as safely as possible given the COVID-19 pandemic, the league played out at two centralised venues (Production Park Studio 001 and the Copper Box Arena) thanks to funding from the government’s Winter Sport Survival Package.

The majority of matches were played behind closed doors with spectators only permitted into the arenas from Rounds 17/18 onwards.

For the 2022 season, however the traditional format of home and away games will be reinstated and full fixtures will be made available to fans later this year.

Supporters will be able to celebrate the homecoming of their local sides as they make their return to their home venues for the first time since 2020.

Vitality Netball Superleague Chair Steve Elworthy MBE said: “After two years like no other, it will be fantastic to see venues around the UK filled with VNSL fans again.

“The centralised venues of Wakefield and the Copper Box gave us an unforgettable season, but we know clubs and players can’t wait to have their home crowds cheering them on once more.”

Building on the celebrated success of the centralised format, selected rounds will also be completed in their entirety at a selection of neutral venues.

Alongside the customary Season Opener and Grand Final, additional fixtures will be played in a centralised arena. These venues and dates will be confirmed with fans in the coming months.
