The Netball NSW Premier League is delighted to welcome Origin Energy on board as the official naming-rights partner of the competition for 2020 and beyond.

The Origin Energy Premier League, as it will now be known, is the pinnacle netball competition in NSW, showcasing the best current and emerging talent within the state.

It offers a local, elite platform for players, coaches, officials and administrators – providing bridging opportunities to the Deakin University Australian Netball League and subsequently, Suncorp Super Netball.

This year will be the competition’s fifth season with two additional franchises – Capital Spirit and South Coast Blaze – joining the eight foundation teams: Central Coast Heart, ERNA Hawks, GWS Fury, Manly Warringah Sapphires, North Shore United, Panthers Netball, Sutherland Stingrays and UTS Randwick Sparks.

All franchises will field teams in the Opens and Under 23s Divisions with two sets of champions crowned after 18 regular-season rounds and Finals Series. Over the four years the competition has been running all original franchises have being crowned champions at least once in either the U20/23s* or Opens, highlighting the competitive nature of the league.

BarTV Sports will again be on deck for the 2020 season, and will live stream six games weekly, as well as Finals, on Netball NSW’s social platforms and the competition website.

Origin Energy recently joined the netball family as naming-right partners of the Australian Diamonds and community partners of the game across the country, including NSW. Origin will also support GIANTS Netball as major partners.

Carolyn Campbell, CEO of Netball NSW, said the Premier League was the ideal competition for Origin Energy to get behind.

“The Premier League is the top competition that Netball NSW runs, with many of the players, coaches and officials involved going on to reach Suncorp Super Netball and international level,” she said.

“The teams and organisation invest a huge amount into it and in Origin Energy we have a partner who shares the vision we have for this competition.

“That we are able to expand the number of teams and grow the competition’s footprint after just four years shows how far it has come, and we are delighted to have Origin with us as we take it to the next level.

“Netball has elite pathways, and has done for decades, and they are vital to us maintaining our position as the No.1 sport for women and young girls across the state and country. The Origin Energy Premier League is a key component of those pathways.”

Origin Energy CEO, Frank Calabria said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Netball Australia to support a much-loved Australian sport and players at all levels across the country – from local clubs right through to the world-leading Australian Diamonds.

“Netball clubs are such an important part of our local communities, and Origin is excited to be working with Netball Australia to support the players, coaches, umpires and volunteers that are the lifeblood of the sport.”

*The Under 23s Division ran as an Under 20s competition from 2016 to 2018.
