ICC Sydney to Host Two Suncorp Super Netball Premier League Matches

The International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) is to bring netball to the heart of the city when it hosts two games of the Suncorp Super Netball premier league this season.

The matches are set to take place at the multipurpose, state-of-the-art ICC Sydney Theatre. It will be the first ever time netball is played at the venue.

ICC Sydney will welcome the prestigious national league’s first Indigenous Round with a match between GIANTS Netball vs NSW Swifts on Sunday, 8 July – the first day of NAIDOC Week. This will be followed by a round between the GIANTS Netball vs West Coast Fever on Saturday, 4 August.

NSW Minister for Finance, Services and Property, Victor Dominello MP said, “ICC Sydney is the centrepiece of the A$3.4 billion, 20-hectare transformation of Darling Harbour and it continues to draw people from around the city - and the world – through its doors, demonstrating its world class capabilities and endless versatility. The venue also features a range of pre-and post-game entertainment options including onsite and precinct-wide dining and meeting options, so it is the ideal location for a much-loved event such as the Suncorp Super Netball.”

CEO of ICC Sydney, Geoff Donaghy said ICC Sydney is looking forward to impressing sports fans once again after attracting a sell-out crowd to the Fast4 Tennis Showdown last year when Rafael Nadal and Nick Kyrgios took to the court.

“The range of events we deliver reflects the diverse capabilities of our integrated facilities and the ICC Sydney Theatre is the perfect size to accommodate Sydney’s netball audience. We are proud to be able to transform the 8,000 seat Theatre into a hub for netball fans and showcase its innovative, tiered and fan shaped layout, which will bring spectators closer to the action,” Donaghy said. “Our entire business is committed to acknowledging and celebrating the heritage and cultures of Sydney’s First Nations and we are honoured to support Netball NSW efforts to recognise the valued contributions that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have made, and continue to make, to the wider community.”

The court-side experience at both Suncorp Super Netball premier league games will be enhanced with high definition screens, large scale projection and the highest quality audio equipment throughout.

“ICC Sydney is Australia’s premier integrated convention, exhibition and entertainment venue and has welcomed just on two million visitors to a vibrant calendar of 1,100 events since opening in December 2016. We have worked hard to establish ICC Sydney’s reputation as one of the world’s leading venues. Whether it’s an indoor sporting event, a live music performance or a theatre production, we are focused on continuing to deliver unparalleled experiences for visitors,” Donaghy added
