West Coast Fever, Super Netball to stay in Queensland despite COVID-19 outbreak

West Coast Fever will remain in Queensland as Super Netball remains committed to finishing the season, despite Brisbane and Gold Coast going into a three-day lockdown on Saturday.

Fever have been in a Queensland hub since July 21 as Super Netball hoped to have the season completed without any lockdown interruptions and border restrictions because of COVID.

But the latest outbreak in Brisbane has left the current fixtures in limbo, with Monday’s clash between the Adelaide Thunderbirds and Melbourne Vixens unlikely to go ahead.

Fever’s clash with Collingwood which is set for Tuesday could go ahead if the lockdown ends as planned.

Super Netball today announced they will play the seven remaining home and away games, which are set to finish next Saturday, in Queensland.

Netball Australia chief executive officer Kelly Ryan said the competition would stay in Queensland to provide the eight teams with “stability” after a chaotic season.

Clubs have moved from Melbourne to Adelaide before finally setting up in Queensland as they try to outrun COVID and its impacts.

“The health and wellbeing of our athletes, coaches, staff and officials is always at the forefront of our decision-making process,” Ryan said.

Fever had already spent time in a Melbourne lockdown, while the two NSW teams, the NSW Swifts and Giants, have been away from home since June.
