AUSTRALIA Post will release a limited edition stamp series to commemorate the nation hosting the Netball World Cup.

Sixteen nations will take part in Netball World Cup at Sydney Olympic Park between August 7 and 16.

It is the second time Sydney had played host to the Netball World Cup and the third time for Australia.

Australia Post philatelic manager Michael Zsolt said the Jo Mure designed stamp included the official emblem for the tournament.

He said the stamp series will be available from today. 

"The Netball World Cup is the ultimate prize in international netball with nations competing from around the world and it is also a celebration of diversity," he said.

"This stamp will provide the public and netball fans with a unique memento of this major international event."
