1 min read

South Africa will host the 2023 Netball World Cup, the International Netball Federation president Molly Rhone confirmed on Thursday at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.

Cape Town beat off stiff competition from Auckland, the only other bidder, who have already hosted the event three times.

This will be the first time South Africa hosts the netball showpiece, and according to the Western Cape Government, the World Cup is likely to pour R2.5-billion into the economy.

The Netball World Cup is a 10-day tournament and 16 nations will play 60 matches – all of them in the Mother City.
