The Netball Super League (NSL) returns for its 2023 season on February 11th and fans will be able to watch the action as it unfolds live on Sky Sports, NOW and Sky Sports YouTube channel. Sky Sports will be airing all five games featuring the ten teams throughout the day, live from the Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham.

New for the 2023 season is Friday Night Netball: a dedicated live show every week from 7-9pm. A party atmosphere awaits fans inside the arenas, while a new 15-minute pre match show will give exclusive access to players and behind the scenes footage, and will lead into Sky Sports’ build-up and analysis.

In addition to Friday Night Netball, Sky Sports will stream two games each week on the Sky Sports YouTube channel ensuring more fans have the chance to watch the sport for free, whilst highlights of every game will also be available on the NSL YouTube channel.

After 20 rounds, the top four teams will go head-to-head in the semi-finals before the Grand Final takes place on June 11th.

Fran Connolly, CEO of England Netball, commented: “We are delighted to partner with Sky Sports once again to enable fans to witness the drama of the NSL. It promises to be a fantastic season of netball, and it is fantastic for the visibility and growth of the sport that there will be so much live netball action to enjoy across broadcast channels and online every week. The new Friday night show will provide a whole new level of entertainment for fans, and after last year’s season that saw unprecedented levels of fans watching in arenas and from home, we are excited to showcase our sport to an ever-growing audience. I’d urge all netball fans to tune in and get behind their teams. This season is going to be a cracker and you won’t want to miss it.”

Helen Falkus, Director of Multi Sports at Sky Sports, added:“We’re very much looking forward to another season of the NSL with England Netball and continuing to deliver the best live coverage to Sky Sports viewers. As the netball audience continues to grow, we’re excited to introduce the new Friday Night Netball show which will enable both existing and new fans to engage with the sport and bring the live atmosphere and energy to the forefront of our coverage.”
