FAST5 NETBALL ALL-STARS RETURNS FRIDAY, 16 JUNE IN LONDON
The Fast5 Netball All-Stars Championship will return to the Copper Box Arena, London on Friday, 16 June, with eight sides from the Netball Super League set to compete over five exhilarating hours of evening action from 5:30pm broadcast live on Sky Sports.
Fast5 Netball All-Stars Championship is one of the most exciting formats in the game and features just five players-a-side, shortened match times, multiple point shots, unlimited roll on-roll-off substitutions, and an exciting double point power play: setting the stage for guaranteed entertainment with the golden buzzer.
The format sees teams compete in the double-elimination group stage before the semi-finals and final with Team Bath the defending champions beating Saracens Mavericks in the 2021 final 23-17.
With the tournament set to take place a week after the conclusion of the Netball Super League, it will offer an opportunity for teams to draw their battle lines once again in an action-packed evening.
Defending champions Team Bath will lead the charge come Friday, 16 June with the likes of current Netball Super League leaders Surrey Storm, 2022 NSL champions Manchester Thunder, Leeds Rhinos, London Pulse, Severn Stars, Strathclyde Sirens, and two-time finalists the Saracens Mavericks.
Kirsty Harris was on Team Bath’s winning side in 2021: “Winning Fast5 in 2021 was a brilliant experience, especially with it being the first time Team Bath had won the competition. We’ve had to wait a while to defend our trophy but we’re looking forward to it. Fast5 is always such a fun event for players and spectators.”
Broadcast live on Sky Sports in the UK and Ireland. Fans in the USA, Germany, Italy, and Spain will be able to watch live on DAZN with fans in Australia able to enjoy on Foxtel. Viaplay will also show the action in the Baltics and Scandinavia with those without a broadcaster able to watch on Matchroom.Live for just £1.99.
The eight sides will battle it out for a slice of the £100,000 prize fund over five action-packed hours beginning with the first centre pass at 5:30pm with the final set to conclude at 10:30pm.
Tickets will be on sale, Wednesday 12 April from only £10. Fans can also take advantage of our courtside hospitality package that includes premium courtside seating, a VIP lanyard, and access to a private VIP cash bar one hour before play starts where you’ll be served canapes and a glass of sparkling wine on arrival.
Featuring 12-minute matches, an all-star 5-point line, and a Golden Buzzer Power Play, the Fast5 Netball All-Stars Championship is an all-action evening of non-stop, pulsating netball.
