Vixens to face fever in 2022 SSN final
After a thrilling game today that saw Vixens beat Giants 55-54
The Melbourne Vixens have earned their position to compete against the West Coast Fever in the 2022 Suncorp Super Netball Grand Final to be played at Perth’s RAC Arena on Sunday 3 July.
The Grand Final confirmation came after tonight’s Preliminary Final in which the Melbourne Vixens delivered a stunning display to claim a one point victory over GIANTS Netball, 55 to 54 points, as well as a shot at their fourth national league premiership.
The Vixens will be looking to finish their success story of a season in which they claimed the minor premiership, after climbing from the bottom of the 2021 ladder.
The Fever, who won express entry to the Grand Final in a Major Semi Final win over the Vixens, will be ready to secure their first ever Suncorp Super Netball title in front of a home crowd.
Tickets from the dedicated ‘Team B’ section will also be available for Melbourne Vixens members to purchase. These tickets will be available from 12:00pm to 6:00pm AEST on Monday 27 June. Any remaining tickets will go on sale to the General Public at 5:00pm AWST/ 7:00pm AEST Monday 27 June.

“We look forward to seeing fans from both sides of the country cheering for their respective teams with pride at Perth’s RAC Arena.
“We would also like to thank the Western Australian Government for supporting the 2022 Suncorp Super Netball Grand Final.”
