Four new teams will be joining Netball Fiji’s FinanceHub Super League which will start its second season of the 7-week tournament this Saturday.

The new teams include the Nadi netball team, Tailevu and the two National U21.

Netball Fiji says the Super League is the country’s premier tier one netball competition and was added to Netball Fiji’s competition schedule to set the platform for the country’s top netball players to showcase their talents.

They say this year the tournament is serving as a selection platform for players to make either the Fiji Pearls or Fiji A squads where the announcement of the squads will be made after the League.

They add the squads announced will then go into preparation for the 2025 international netball season.

Netball Fiji says the tournament will also serve as a preparation platform for the National Under 21 squad for the upcoming World Youth Championship next year.

Netball Fiji CEO Vivian Koster says the tournament has been adjusted this year to allow all teams to play home and away games. Koster says it will also allow young netballers around the country to watch their favourite players in action.

She says for these reasons they are grateful to their sponsors FinanceHub for investing in netball and young people and understanding the importance of sport in promoting healthy living and building communities.

Round one of the Super League will begin this Friday at the FMF Gymnasium in Suva with defending champion FMF Suva taking on National U21 team Kikau.

The other matches of round 1 will be played on Saturday.

Lautoka Stars will playTailevu at the Lautoka Multipurpose Court, Nadi will take on Nadroga Stallions at Lawaqa Park, while Nasinu Gold will face National U21 team Kacau at the LICI Courts in Laucala.
