A new era of Australian netball began on 18th February 2017.
It marked the start of the Suncorp Super Netball (SSN). A new national netball league, backed by Suncorp, Telstra and the Nine Network.
Within the league the Adelaide Thunderbirds, Melbourne Vixens, NSW Swifts, Queensland Firebirds and West Coast Fever, GIANTS Netball, Magpies Netball Club and the Sunshine Coast Lightning battle it out for netball glory. Up to 80 professional athletes could now share a landmark player pool of $5.4 million. SSN quickly became the world’s premier netball code.
