The match should have taken place at the venue in London's Olympic Park but the floor was damaged during a weightlifting event over the weekend.
The surface has been deemed to be unplayable, and England Netball has been forced to reschedule not just Monday's match, but all four internationals due to have been played at the Copper Box.
The games will now be played at the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre but, for logistical reasons, supporters with tickets for the Copper Box will not be accommodated, other than family members - although England's game against New Zealand will still be shown live on Sky Sports.
An England Netball statement read: "All ticket purchasers for both days will be offered a full refund.
"We will endeavor to begin the process for England Netball to authorize and complete refunds to all ticket purchasers within 48 hours with a view to it being completed within 14 days."
Despite the late venue change, games in the ZEO International Tri-Series will be shown live on Sky Sports, starting with the clash against New Zealand from 7pm on Sky Sports 2 on Monday.
