ENGLAND Netball cancelled the 2020 Netball Superleague season today as a result of the public health crisis.
The league started in February but was suspended on March 15 after three completed matches, but now the Vitality Netball Super League (VNSL) Board and England Netball are exploring the “the option of a standalone short form VNSL competition” in autumn.
England Netball CEO Fran Connolly said: “After many weeks of following government guidance and planning for a variety of different scenarios, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 VNSL season.
“It has become clear that large sporting gatherings will unlikely be deemed safe in coming months and after lengthy discussions we believe it would not be logistically possible or sustainable without crowds to reignite the season.
“While we will now focus our efforts on working with VNSL teams to investigate an autumn offer and plan for an incredible full return next season, we will also be continuing to prepare our Return To Training and our Return to Play frameworks for other parts of the game.”
