Netball Australia has officially submitted a bid to host the Netball World Cup in Sydney for 2027, overcoming a number of COVID-19 related hurdles in an effort to make the June 30 deadline.

Chief executive Marne Fechner was delighted the governing body was able to make the submission on Tuesday, despite standing down 50 per cent of staff across April and May.

"[COVID-19] definitely has been a disruption to the bidding process in terms of trying to manage our position...and support the netball ecosystem to ensure it survives," she said. "Especially with limited resources, having to stand down half of our organisation."

If successful, Sydney would play host to the World Cup on Netball Australia's 100th anniversary. It would be the third time Sydney hosts, after successful bids in 1991 and 2015, where the Diamonds claimed gold both times.

Perth hosted the Netball World Cup in Perth in 1967.

"We recognise the importance and the power of a world cup on home soil and I think we learnt that through 2015," Fechner said. "It had been 24 years since we last hosted, so one of the commitments we made coming out of the event that it wouldn't be that long again."

The last World Cup at Liverpool in 2019 was disappointing for the Diamonds, who fell to New Zealand 52-51 in the final.

The poor World Cup result, combined with a loss to England in the 2018 Commonwealth Games by the same scoreline, led to the shock sacking of Diamonds coach Lisa Alexander.

"It hasn't been easy but we are really excited," Fechner said. "We are thrilled with what we are putting forward [in the bid]...we have a really rich heritage here in Australia of delivering innovation and delivering world-class events."

As a part of the bid, Netball Australia had to pitch the innovative potential of a World Cup in Sydney.

In an attempt to secure the bid, Netball Australia is looking at the possibility of the use of LED courts which are a relatively new concept from Nike.

The LED courts allow game lines to be digitally switched from badminton to basketball to netball.

"It looks amazing...and it can do everything," Fechner said.

The change could set to spark another debate for traditional netball fans, who last week were up in arms over the latest innovative change.

Last week, Super Netball announced the introduction of the Super Shot, which gives a player two-point when shooting from the outer portion of the goal circle in the final five minutes of each quarter.

The announcement last Tuesday sparked huge backlash from fans and players, who argued that the Super Netball commission did not consult them on the major rule change.
