Vitality Netball World Cup ambassador Jade Clarke said: “With just 50 days to go now excitement is at fever point, among players, teams and fans! From the Roses’ point of view, we can’t wait to welcome the world and we know that the international teams are looking forward to coming over to Liverpool. It’s going to be a historic event.”
