NETBALL: Jamaica bids for 2016 AFNA Championships

Published:Thursday | December 18, 2014 | 12:30 PM

Jamaica is hoping to host the next Americas Federation of Netball Associations (AFNA) Championships in 2016.



Netball Jamaica president, Marva Bernard, is reporting that no other country has put in a bid to host after the regional netball powerhouse expressed interest at the last AFNA board meeting in Calgary, Canada, in August.



Jamaica last won the AFNA title in 2012 but has not hosted the tournament since 1990.



The tournament will be in a year free of other world netball events, with the World Netball Championships set for 2015 and the World Youth Netball Championships in 2017.
