“We are delighted that the home of Superleague champions Wasps Netball is being given this once-in-a-lifetime chance to host the sport on a global stage for the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in 2022.

“The Ericsson Indoor Arena has plenty of experience at successfully hosting domestic and international netball matches, making us perfectly poised to deliver a memorable experience for the thousands of visitors to the Ricoh Arena and the millions watching on TV.

“I’d like to congratulate the city of Birmingham on their achievement, and we look forward to working with various partners to ensure we maximise this opportunity for the wider Midlands.”
