Organisers of the Netball World Cup 2019 have today announced an accessible ticket sales process for the tournament that aims to welcome new and existing fans to the event from all over the world.
The tournament – which is to be delivered by Netball World Cup 2019 Limited in partnership with the INF, England Netball, UK Sport, Liverpool City Council and ACC Liverpool – takes place at Liverpool’s Echo Arena next summer. The event is expected to be in high demand as English fans look forward to a once-in-a-generation home World Cup, with thousands of fans also expected to travel from overseas for the event.
There will be a range of tickets available across the 20 sessions – taking place from Friday 12 July to Sunday 21 July 2019 – including gold, silver and bronze level tickets as well as adult and junior prices.
Tickets start from just £10 for adults and £5 for children, meaning everyone has the opportunity to be part of what is set to be a dynamic and exciting competition.
Further information about the range of ticket prices for each stage of the competition is available on the event website.
Fan packages and tickets for the event will be released in three phases:
Phase one: fan packages
