Aussies set to shine in Christchurch this weekend

The Seven Network is giving Australian netball fans the chance to get behind our much-loved Aussie netballers, when the FAST5 Netball World Series kicks off this Saturday, 5 November at 10.00am, live, free and in HD* on 7plus.

The FAST5 Netball World Series will see the world’s top six ranked teams play netball’s five-a-side condensed game, across Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 November at Christchurch Arena in New Zealand.

With a 10-strong Australian team headlined by Australian Diamonds Sophie Garbin and Sophie Dwyer, the green and gold will return to the Fast5 court for the first time in four years since placing third in the 2018 competition.

Seven Melbourne Managing Director and Head of Network Sport, Lewis Martin, said: “We are thrilled to extend our women’s sports offering to include the FAST5 Netball world Series on Seven, Your Home of Sport.

“During the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, we saw just how much Australians love getting behind our netballers and we cannot wait to deliver the excitement and passion from the fast-paced competition, straight into living rooms across the country.

“All the action is just one click away on your smart TV, mobile, tablet or computer. You do not want to miss a minute, right here on Seven and 7plus.”
