Collingwood Magpies are well placed to continue their undefeated run at the Silverdome after a full Super Netball fixture to start from August 1 was confirmed.

Netball Australia announced on Sunday that all 60 matches will still go ahead as scheduled before the coronavirus pandemic.

The state's adopted team was set to host the Giants on May 24 in Launceston and Netball Tasmania had feared the clash could be scrapped should the Super Netball season be shortened.

Netball Tasmania chief executive Aaron Pidgeon is planning that the contractual obligations between the state government and the club will be honoured.

Collingwood has committed to an annual Super Netball match at the venue since signing a deal from its inaugural 2017 season.

"As long as the borders are open and obviously the state government have got to work with Collingwood to get that, but we'll be pretty keen with the new format to get a home game down here," he said.
