Saracens Mavericks will start the new Netball Superleague season in February with their first official home game coming in round three.

The opening two fixtures for each club will be played at the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham on February 5 and 6 and will see the Mavs take on Wasps and Celtic Dragons.

All games will either be televised or streamed live.

But after last season when each game was played at two special venues, the Hertfordshire Sports Village will welcome both the action and fans with London Pulse providing the opposition on a date to be decided.

The season ends with the grand final on June 5.

The Mavs were also runners-up in the Fast5 Netball All-Stars tournament.

They started by losing to Wasps but followed that up with wins over Loughborough Lightning and Strathclyde Sirens before beating Manchester Thunder 27-11 in the semi-final.
