Collingwood will hit the road for the first time in 2021, returning to their second home in Tasmania for the side’s first official practice matches of the year.

The Magpies will take on the NSW Swifts in two hit-outs at the Hobart Netball and Sports Centre over the weekend. The matches present the perfect opportunity for new head coach Nicole Richardson to begin testing combinations and for fresh faces to put on the black and white for the first time.

While the Magpies fell short in their two match-ups against the Swifts in the 2020 Suncorp Super Netball season, the squad will be looking to put their pre-season efforts to work to reverse their fortunes.

Game One

Collingwood v Swifts
Friday 5 March, 7pm
Hobart Netball and Sports Centre

Game Two

Collingwood v Swifts
Sunday 7 March, 10am
Hobart Netball and Sports Centre

Tickets will go on sale on Thursday 25 February from 9am (AEDT). 2020 Collingwood Magpies Netball Members will be emailed a promo code for a discounted ticket. Please note tickets to each match will be sold separately.

Due to COVID restrictions, tickets will be limited so get in quick!

Magpie Army who can’t make it to the game will be able to tune in to a full livestream of Friday’s match via Collingwood’s Facebook Page and keep up with all the action across the entire weekend on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
