England Netball have confirmed that the 2016 Vitality Netball Superleague Grand Final will take place at London's Copper Box Arena on Saturday May 7.
The London venue has been a regular location for netball with several Roses internationals and the 2015 Grand Final played at the venue in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The competition's showpiece final will return to the capital after a successful Grand Final last year - Surrey Storm claiming the honours after a 56-39 victory over Hertfordshire Mavericks.
Both of the teams remain in contention this season and are already among the top four bidding for a return to London in May for the final and Vitality Netball Superleague interim general manager Ian Holloway is relishing the season building to a thrilling conclusion.
"Once again we are thrilled to take the biggest match in the domestic game to a fitting venue for what will be an incredible title decider," said Holloway.
"We had a phenomenal crowd watch last year's Grand Final and once again we anticipate a sell-out crowd at the Copper Box as one of the most exciting Superleague season's ever staged comes to a nerve-shredding conclusion."
At the end of the regular season the top four teams will meet in the semi-finals before the winners go on to battle it out for the title in London on May 7.
A thrilling start to the Superleague season has Manchester Thunder and Hertfordshire Mavericks locked together at the top of the table with four wins from four games and the duo clash at the Hertfordshire Sports Village this weekend, while on Monday night you can see a repeat of the 2014 Grand Final when Thunder host the Storm, live on Sky Sports.
