Superleague netball giants Manchester Thunder and Yorkshire Jets are aiming to make sporting history when they face off at Netball Manchester Live on April 18th at the Manchester Arena. The two teams will play in a season-ending Roses clash which is aiming to break the record for the highest attended domestic netball match ever held in the UK. The record is currently held by Netball London Live, held in March last year, which attracted 6033 people. The Vitality Netball Superleague is the United Kingdom’s top level, elite netball competition featuring eight teams from England and Wales. Vitality Netball Superleague matches are screened live on Sky Sports TV throughout the season. www.netballsl.com Thunder and England Netball captain Sara Bayman has her eyes firmly set on the twin goals of beating her team’s Roses rivals in the Vitality Netball Superleague and topping the London attendance record. “This game is going to be all about rivalry,” said Bayman. “It’s us against Jets, the North West against Yorkshire, and the North against the South when it comes to breaking the attendance record. We want fans of both teams, and anyone across the region that just loves sport, to be there cheering and helping us make history.” With a record-breaking crowd expected, tickets are set to be in high demand.
