Magical start to Mojo Pulse’s 2016 campaign

Magical start to Mojo Pulse’s 2016 campaign

17 September 2015

The Mojo Pulse will open their 2016 ANZ Championship campaign with a home game against the Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic at TSB Bank Arena on Monday 4th April. Four of their home fixtures will take place at the Wellington venue, with the remaining two to be played at Porirua’s Te Rauparaha Arena.

The team has three trips across the Tasman during the 13-game regular season, with visits to take on the Firebirds in Brisbane, the Swifts in Sydney and the Fever in Perth. Mojo Pulse and Netball Central Zone CEO Carolyn Young is pleased with the balance of the draw, particularly the spread of home and away games.

“The draw looks good from our perspective and the players are excited about the challenges presented by the three games in Australia, which are evenly spread throughout the season,” she explained.

“The new start time of 4pm on Sundays suits us well and will be much more attractive to families looking to watch the team live. Unfortunately the draw does not see us have any games outside of Wellington in 2016, however we are planning some pre-season fixtures as well as a comprehensive community engagement programme that will see the players once again visit centres across the zone.

“Tanya and the team are looking forward to seeing our legion of fans show their support in 2016 by getting along to games and now that our squad and draw have been confirmed, we will be finalising details with our ticketing agency to get season tickets on sale in early October.”
