SUNCORP SUPER NETBALL - THUNDERBIRDS V LIGHTNING
Sat 6 June 2020 - Arena
The Adelaide Thunderbirds have revealed their 2020 Suncorp Super Netball fixture, unveiling three blockbuster matches at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre, including fan-favourite Friday and Saturday night timeslots.
Regarded as one of the best match day experiences in the league, the Adelaide Thunderbirds will offer enhanced off-court action for fans in the Fan Village and amplified in-venue entertainment ahead of the primetime matches on Saturday 6 June, Saturday 11 July, and Friday 7 August.
Featuring more international athletes than ever before, Suncorp Super Netball is sure to again showcase the sport’s best talent in 2020. The Adelaide Thunderbirds are pleased to offer the most tickets to its home matches in history, allowing more fans to access the world’s strongest domestic competition right here on their doorstep.
The 2020 season kicks off against GIANTS Netball on Sunday 3 May in front of a home crowd at Priceline Stadium, the home of netball in South Australia.
Another highlight of the 2020 Adelaide Thunderbirds fixture is the home match at Adelaide Entertainment Centre over the June long weekend, which coincides with Netball South Australia’s annual Priceline Pharmacy Country Championships (PPCC). The PPCC sees thousands of country netballers converge on Priceline Stadium to play against competitors from all corners of the state and the Round 6 match offers them the perfect opportunity to watch some of the world’s best athletes play once their competition wraps up for the day.
Despite the Adelaide Thunderbirds working with Netball NT and NT Major Events Company to secure another match in Darwin after the success of this year’s historic match in the Top End, the NT Government failed to allocate funding to bring SSN to the Territory for a second year.
Whilst it is disappointing that the Adelaide Thunderbirds will not be furthering this partnership next year, it means an extra home game in Adelaide, delivering seven opportunities for loyal South Australian fans to cheer the team on in 2020.
All eight Suncorp Super Netball clubs will continue to play each other once at home, and once away.
Looking to build on their three wins and seventh-place finish in 2019, the Adelaide Thunderbirds will be out to claim bonus points and win matches from the very first whistle.
