International pop sensation Pink will render Qudos Bank Arena unavailable throughout the Super Netball finals series, which would force Sydney's two clubs to host a final in an under-sized venue should either earn the right to a home playoff match.
Pink is playing nine shows in Sydney later this year and has booked out the 17,500-capacity venue for the first weekend of Super Netball semi-finals on August 11 and 12 and for two recently added concerts a fortnight later which would clash with the competition's grand final.
Finishing first or third on the Super Netball ladder earns a team the right to host a home final, while the winner of the major semi final hosts the decider two weeks later.
The preliminary final is hosted by the loser of the major semi-final and is played against the winner of the third-versus-fourth playoff match.
Qudos Bank Arena is potentially available for a preliminary final should the Swifts or Giants be required to host that match. It falls in between Pink's concert dates and just days after pop star Katy Perry performs at the venue.
