The Buildcorp Super W competition returns for 2023 with the new season kicking off on Friday 24 March.
All Super W matches will be available to watch exclusively, ad-free and on demand on Stan Sport – with select Saturday double-headers being simulcast on free-to-air on 9GEM. The NSW Waratahs will get the season underway with the first match at the new home of the Waratahs, the rebuilt Allianz Stadium in Sydney, taking on the Western Force as part of a double header with their male counterparts in Super Rugby Pacific.
“Buildcorp is thrilled to be supporting the Buildcorp Super W competition as Australia’s best rugby players vie for the ultimate title,” said Josephine Sukkar AM - Principal, Buildcorp.
“The 2023 Buildcorp Super W will be more dynamic than ever, in a season that will celebrate the elite female talent we have across the country.
“Fostering the competition at this level allows our domestic talent a clear pathway to representing Australia as part of the Buildcorp Wallaroos squad, in what will be an exciting 2023 season.”
The Super W teams will play each other once over five rounds, with both Semi-Finals being played at Concord Oval on Sunday 30 April in a double-header that will showcase the best Super W talent in the country.
The Final will be a standalone event on 6 May at a venue to be confirmed.
“The Buildcorp Super W competition gives our players the opportunity to test themselves against the best that Australia and Fiji have to offer,” CEO of Rugby Australia Andy Marinos said.
“This will be a crucial season for the best players in Australia, who will be hoping to put their best feet forward ahead of a jam-packed international calendar for the Buildcorp Wallaroos in 2023.
“As part of the golden decade of Rugby in Australia, we see huge potential for growth in the women’s game and 2023 looks to be a pivotal season across Super W and the Wallaroos.
“Our national team’s performance at the recent Rugby World Cup was inspiring, and we see that performance as a great opportunity to build the status of the women’s game – the competition is a fantastic opportunity for fans to get out and see the Wallaroos stars that made us so proud in New Zealand.”
