2007 World Netball Championships taken away from Fiji
The International Federation of Netball Associations (IFNA) withdrew the 2007 World Netball Championships from Fiji last Saturday. The Championships was to have been held in Suva, July 2007. The withdrawal was attributed to the military takeover of government last week. As a result of the withdrawal, Fiji is expected to lose around F$6 million in revenue that would have been gained from the Championships.
