PUMA Team Melbourne Vixens crowned 2020 Suncorp Super Netball Champions for 2020

November 3, 2020

The Melbourne Vixens, a PUMA Team, were crowned Super Netball champions for the first time after a tight final.


It was quite a journey for the Melbourne Vixens. Due to the impact of COVID in 2020, the whole team had to leave their Melbourne base and move into a hub in Queensland for over 13 weeks. Nevertheless, the PUMA team had a dream run into the finals, finishing on top of the ladder for the regular season, only dropping two games. In the final, the Melbourne Vixens defeated West Coast Fever 66-64. With seven seconds left on the clock and a centre pass up their sleeve, the Vixens were able to play a possession game to close out their first Super Netball grand final win.

Our PUMA ambassador Mwai Kumwenda (MJ) was named player of the match shooting with 92% accuracy throughout the game. Congratulations!
