JOHANNESBURG – Four months after the end the 2019 Vitality Netball World Cup in Liverpool, South Africa will face England in the SPAR Challenge. It will be a three-match series played in Cape Town in late November.
England and South Africa met each other twice in Liverpool and finished third and fourth respectively.
South Africa will now face England’s Roses at the Velodrome in Cape Town from November 29-December 1. This will be the first time the two sides meet following their battle for bronze at the World Cup in July.
“We are excited to be hosting England in November and cannot wait for the clash,” said Netball South Africa’s Cecilia Molokwane.
“Both teams have gone through a transition phase and are building for the future. We obviously don’t want to allow them to beat us on our own turf and we have a home crowd advantage this time.”
