Big Bash bigger in 2017-18

31 July 2017

The New Year’s Eve double-header at Adelaide Oval will again be the feature of the Adelaide Strikers’ expanded schedule for the 2017-18 season.

The KFC Big Bash League (BBL) and Rebel Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) fixtures were released today by Cricket Australia.

FIXTURES: View the full BBL|07 and WBBL|03 fixtures here. 

The Strikers’ WBBL side will launch their WBBL|03 campaign with two home games against Hobart Hurricanes on the weekend of 9-10 December and then remain in Adelaide for their next two games against Melbourne Renegades the following weekend.

The team does not travel until it plays the Melbourne Stars at Casey Fields on 5 January.

A Friday night game at Adelaide Oval against Sydney Thunder on 22 December will be the opening fixture of BBL|07 for the Strikers.

This year’s New Year’s Eve opponent will be Brisbane Heat in both competitions.

The Strikers will play 10 games in BBL|07, two more than last season. The BBL regular season has increased to 40 matches, up from 32. Every match will be broadcast on Network Ten.

“Summer in Adelaide will again be dominated by the Adelaide Strikers,” said Strikers General Manager, Bronwyn Klei.

“We have more WBBL games (seven) in Adelaide this season and being scheduled to open our BBL season at Adelaide Oval on the Friday night before Christmas is a bonus.

“Our New Year’s Eve event has sold out the past four years and it’s great to have another exciting double-header to showcase both our teams.”

Entry level ticket prices remain unchanged and family-friendly for the seventh consecutive season, including the same general admission pricing to double-header matches.

Some venues for games are still to be confirmed.

Cricket Australia Executive General Manager of Leagues and Events, Anthony Everard said: “We’re very excited to be able to announce the BBL and WBBL schedules for the upcoming season, and we expect this to the biggest yet thanks to the increased number of matches, the growing popularity of both competitions.

“We know the MOU is still being finalised, but we are confident this won’t affect the upcoming BBL and WBBL season, and we’re looking forward to welcoming a huge number of travelling fans who are coming out for the Ashes. This will help them plan their ultimate summer in Australia.”
