Striking new shirts for final home matches

02 February 2019

The Strikers will wear an Indigenous-designed playing shirt for the club's final two home matches of BBL|08

Adelaide will wear striking new playing shirts designed by South Australian-based Indigenous artists in the club’s final two home matches at Adelaide Oval.

Artists Mel Agius and Colleen Strangways have re-imagined last summer’s design unveiled in Alice Springs in an eye-catching and darker-coloured playing strip.

The artists’ drawings represent the Strikers making their way from Kaurna land to Alice Springs, the place of the Arrernte people.

The Strikers’ WBBL team first wore the new design in two matches against the Perth Scorchers in Alice Springs last month at Albrecht Oval. The club retained the Faith Thomas Trophy with a win in the first match at the venue.

Adelaide’s men’s team will wear the shirts against the Brisbane Heat on Sunday, 3 February and again on Saturday, 9 February against the Scorchers with both matches now to be played at Adelaide Oval.

The Strikers and Scorchers will clash in a match relocated from Traeger Park in Alice Springs due to safety concerns regarding the standard of the outfield.

The two clubs will still compete for the Jason Gillespie Trophy and wear Indigenous-designed shirts to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island heritage and culture.

The shirts are available for purchase via the Strikers online store.

Tickets to the Strikers’ final two matches of the summer at Adelaide Oval are now available via Ticketek.
