Match against Melbourne Stars postponed

06 January 2022

Tomorrow night’s BBL fixture between Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Stars at Adelaide Oval has been postponed.

We apologise for this disappointing news, and thank you for your understanding during what is a difficult time in regard to the scheduling of fixtures.

The Melbourne Stars currently have 13 players in isolation after testing positive for COVID-19. A number of those players are due to exit isolation soon, subject to a negative test.

However, with concern for the health and wellbeing of those players, the League has deemed it unreasonable for them to play a match in the time available after exiting isolation.

The League will advise a new date for the match shortly, along with plans to safely execute the remainder of the KFC BBL|11 season.

The League and clubs will continue to prioritise the health and safety of all players, match officials, staff, fans and the wider community throughout the season.

Ticket holders are entitled to a full refund, and will be contacted in the coming days.
