The Netball World Cup Trophy has been an iconic and recognisable symbol of netball’s pinnacle sporting event since its creation in 1995.
The Netball World Cup represents all nations, and regions of the globe. The event is responsible for inspiring past and future generations of netballers through fierce competition, inspirational athletes and passionate fans.
The trophy, created by Birmingham based craftsman Marcus Steel in 1995 was commissioned by International Netball Federation and was first presented to 1995 Netball World Cup victors, Australia on Saturday 29 July, 1995.
The trophy’s crystal white dome has a beautifully etched map of the world, and is supported by glimmering solid silver struts which represents the net of a goal post, with gold detailing.
