About Us

At the completion of the National Bank Cup netball competition in 2007, Southland and Otago joined forces to make a bid for one of the five New Zealand teams in the ANZ Championship in 2008. The Southern Sting and Otago Rebels franchises were merged to create the Southern Steel.

The Southern region of New Zealand is now proudly represented in the ANZ Championship by the Ascot Park Hotel Southern Steel - formed through the original amalgamation of two regional netball entities - Netball Otago and Netball Southland.
