Flying the Flag for UK Netball

Great news for GLL’s successful association with the UK’s Professional Netball scene came this week with the announcement that England Netball and Netball Superleague (NSL) stars London Pulse – who are based at Copper Box Arena - will be one of eight clubs participating in the relaunched League from 2025.

2023 league finalists London Pulse have called Copper Box Arena their ‘world class home base’ since 2019, scaling the heights of success in the sport as it has grown in stature across the capital and the UK.  Many players go on to represent England at international level. 

The announcement means that the NSL’s games will be played at arena venues up and down the country – including Copper Box Arena – delighting fans whose numbers have exceeded 3,500 for a single match for the first time this season.

Stuart Hutchison, General Manager at Copper Box Arena said: “This announcement is fantastic news for GLL and London Pulse - together, we have formed a successful partnership over the last few years to bring professional netball to a growing fanbase in world class facilities. 

“We’ve also engaged local communities in London with the sport – providing a pathway for future talent.”

“We can’t wait to welcome the team and the fans back at Copper Box Arena in the new season – and wish them every success”.

Sam Bird, CEO of London Pulse, believes the club - with its playing venue in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park - are in a perfect position to take advantage of this great news. “We are very proud to be a key club in the professional NSL, we recognise this is an amazing opportunity to inspire Londoners to watch and play netball and a responsibility to do all we can to bring success to our sport”.
