FANS' MVP STATION. We are all about the fans – and therefore you get to select the player that you think is a FAN MVP (Most Valued Player) at NWC2015.

TRAVEL OFFICE INFO DESK. This is exactly as it sounds. The NWC2015 Travel office and our six Official Travel Agents will be ready to field your questions and suggestions at their information booth. If your agent is taking a quick break – don’t worry the NWC2015 Travel Office team will do their best to assist.
THE CHILL ZONE. The ideal place to meet you mates! Chill out in front of the FanFEST Big Screen, enjoy the entertainment, on stage presentations or fan upgrade challenges!

We invite Rob to share his insights from the Australia v New Zealand match on Day 3, as fans look ahead towards the closing weekend. Tuesday 11 August @ 5 – 6pm @ FanFEST Big Stage.
PERFECT PASSING CHALLENGE. Your passing is tested at our all digital (yep – that’s right… no physical ball!) Perfect Pass Challenge. Can you land the perfect pass without the defender taking an intercept, can you read the ball placement and get the crowd going crazy for you?

COVER THE COURT. Fans are invited to cover the court with our very own reaction tester! Netballers need great peripheral vision, reaction times and ability to read the play (plus more)…and our court wall will be sure to get you watching, striving, getting your fast feet going and lots of laughs! With 30 seconds on the clock…will you be ready to COVER THE COURT? Can you make our leader board? Proudly supported by our Digital Fan Engagement team at The Creative Shop.
