Sky Sports is to show live coverage of the Netball World Cup 2015, which is set to take place at Sydney’s Olympic Park in August this year.

Pay-TV subscribers will be able to follow the Home Nations' progress in the tournament, as they go for glory in Australia.

England - who are ranked third in the word - lost by a single point to both Australia and New Zealand at the Commonwealth Games in 2014.

As such, Anna Mayes' team will be looking for payback when they head down under.  

Barney Francis, Sky Sports' Managing Director, said the broadcaster was "delighted" to add the World Cup to its schedule.

"There has never been a better time to be a netball fan, with participation up and sell-out crowds at Superleague matches," he stated.

"We’re proud of our netball coverage and we can’t wait to follow the Home Nations teams at the World Cup later this year."

Mr Francis said the competition strengthens Sky's commitment to women’s sport "even further", complementing its coverage of the Solheim Cup, England Women’s rugby and the Women’s Ashes.
