LIVERPOOL TO HOST VITALITY NETBALL WORLD CUP 2019 FAN PARK

In partnership with Liverpool City Council, the Vitality Netball World Cup 2019 will be hosting a Fan Park alongside the showcase international event. Located in Chavasse Park within Liverpool ONE, as part of their Summer of Sport, netball fans from around the world will have the exciting opportunity to visit the park throughout the 10 days of the tournament.


With a view over Liverpool’s skyline and the UNESCO World Heritage Waterfront, entry to the park will be free. Matches are set to be screened live on a giant screen, complemented by a programme of music, street theatre, entertainment and netball activities. There will also be a series of talks and Q&As featuring inspirational women, along with appearances from elite, international netball players. Visitors to the park will have the opportunity to meet the tournament’s iconic mascot, Jude the Liver Bird.

A full programme will be announced on Vitality Netball World Cup 2019 and Culture Liverpool’s websites and daily activity will be promoted on both their social media channels.

Fan park opening hours will be in line with daily match times for the competition, which takes place at the M&S Bank Arena Liverpool from 12-21 July.

Vitality Netball World Cup 2019 Event Director Lindsay Impett said: “We are delighted to be able to confirm that Liverpool will host the official Vitality Netball World Cup 2019 fan park. With fun activations and lots of exciting announcements to come, the fan park is set to be a brilliant addition to the event. It will be the place to be for those in between sessions as well as for people without tickets who still want to be a part of this incredible event.”

Liverpool City Council’s Deputy Mayor and Cabinet Member responsible for events, Councillor Wendy Simon added: “Hosting the Vitality Netball World Cup is a huge coup and tens of thousands of people will be heading to the city to be part of the event.


“The fan park means that even more people can be part of the experience and there will be a programme of events appealing to everyone – from avid fans right through to those new to the sport.

“We want to make the most of this global showcase in our city and celebrate the inspirational women who are set to wow huge crowds in July.”

Donna Howitt, Marketing Director at Liverpool ONE, said: “We’re thrilled to be a part of the Vitality Netball World Cup and pleased to be hosting the Fan Park on Chavasse Park. The park will give fans and visitors the opportunity to enjoy the Vitality Netball World Cup in the heart of the city, soak up the atmosphere and enjoy a whole host of entertainment.
