Super Netball 2019: What we know so far
IT starts in April, finishes in October and will break for four weeks so top players can compete in the netball World Cup.
But while the full draw has yet to be released, there is still plenty we know about Super Netball 2019,
Full squads are now locked down, internationals signed and we know there are a few players set to make their debuts in the world class competition.
Here's what we know about Super Netball 2019 so far.
THE REGULAR SEASON DRAW
The third year of the competition will start on April 27.
It will break after June 23 for four weeks to allow top players to return to their countries to prepare for World Cup in Liverpool which will be played from July 12-21.
The Super Netball competition will then resume on July 27.
SUPER NETBALL 2019 FINALS
The semi-finals will be played on August 31 and September 1.
The preliminary final will be played on September 8.
The season decider has been slated for September 15.
After much speculation, New Zealand shooter Maria Folau finally announced she would be in the colours of the Thunderbirds next season.
She is one of numerous internationals in a team rebuilding after two disappointing seasons of Super Netball.
THE NUMBER GAME
Australian netballers will make up 74 per cent of the players in the third season of Super Netball.
This means 59 locals will be in the competition alongside 21 internationals.
This is just three more overseas players than in the 2018 competition.
There will be eight players from England in Super Netball 2019. Jamaica will field the next most with five players followed by South Africa with three, New Zealand with two and Malawi, Uganda and Trinidad with one each.
This means there is at least one international in every team in the 2019 competition.
NUMBERS THAT MATTER
Only 33 positions were available for new or re-signed players in 2020.
The majority of players - 79 per cent - stayed put at the clubs they played with in 2018 while six training partners were promoted to the squads of clubs.
