International Netball Federation President Liz Nicholl said on Monday she hoped the decision to give Sydney hosting rights to the 2027 Netball World Cup would not only continue the sport's growth but also inspire people around the world.

Australia have won a record 11 World Cup titles, including both times it was held in Sydney previously, in 1991 and 2015. “As our sport continues to evolve at an unprecedented rate, we look forward to working on netball's growth and development, whilst delivering a thrilling world-class event that will no doubt inspire all and work towards creating a better world through netball,” Nicholl said.

The 2023 World Cup will be held in Cape Town, South Africa.

Sydney was also one of the host cities for last year's Women's T20 World Cup and will also stage matches in the 2023 women's soccer World Cup, including the final at Stadium Australia.
