The new year is already looking very exciting at Copper Box Arena! Copper Box Arena will host England Netball and Jamaica as part of a Vitality Netball International Series in January 2023 back-to-back games on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th January.
The two sides last met in 2021 where the Vitality Roses came out on top with a 2-1 series win over the course of three matches, their first series win against the Sunshine Girls since 2013. Jamaica, who are currently ranked third in the world, one place above England, after winning a historic silver medal at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, will be looking to hold on to that lead in a series of three fixtures:
- Wednesday 11th January, FCP 7.15pm– AO Arena, Manchester
- Saturday 14th January, FCP 2.15pm – Copper Box Arena, London
- Sunday 15th January, FCP 2pm– Copper Box Arena, London
Vitality Roses Head Coach Jess Thirlby commented: “A Vitality Roses v Sunshine Girls clash never disappoints – the squad to take on the Jamaican team will be announced next month”.
Performance Director, David Parsons added: “As we saw at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, Jamaica are a force to be reckoned with on the international stage”. The Vitality Roses will be continuing their preparations for the Netball World Cup in South Africa next summer.
Tickets to the Vitality Netball International Series are available on general sale from 9am on Wednesday 16th November.
So, what are you waiting for? Get your hands on your tickets and we look forward to seeing you in the arena.
