West Coast Fever will host the Suncorp Super Netball Grand Final at Perth Arena on Sunday 26th August. The Fever secured their place in the Grand Final by defeating the Giants 63-57 in a tightly contested game which we watched from the edge of our seats.
This is an historic win for the West Coast Fever who have only made finals once before in Suncorp Super Netball and never a Grand Final. In a matter of 12 months, they have gone from 7th place last year, winning only 2 games, to scoring a home Grand Final. With only one change to the playing roster for this year, it is a great result for a team who have shown dedication and grit to reach their potential. After a year of several major injuries, a very strong preseason and recruitment of Jamaican national, Jhaniele Fowler, has set up the Fever for what was to be their most successful season yet.
The team at Marketforce have been both supporters and suppliers of the Fever this season. Netball is the most popular participation sport for Australian females and Marketforce are proud to support both Netball WA and the West Coast Fever. The team connected easily with the brand and our first creative work for them resulted in the successful #GotGrit campaign. Not only has membership increased by 6% but crowds have lifted by a massive 33% this season.
With a home Grand Final topping off a very successful season, we’re sure the numbers will increase well into next year. You’ll be sure to hear a large crowd of the Marketforce team at the grand final. We’ve certainly got the Fever.
