Sydney Sixers announce SCG schedule

Sydney Sixers fans and SCG Trust members can look forward to a bumper draw this summer with a total of nine matches to be played at the ground across the expanded BBL and WBBL competitions.

Action gets underway with a double header on the afternoon of December 22 featuring a BBL clash against the Perth Scorchers and a WBBL match against the Brisbane Heat.

Both sides will return to the SCG on December 27 against the Melbourne Stars (BBL) and Melbourne Renegades (WBBL) before the women’s side continue their season at other venues around the country.

The Sixers men’s side will also host home fixtures against the Melbourne Renegades, Brisbane Heat, Hobart Hurricanes and Adelaide Strikers. On January 14, the Sixers will take on their Thunder rivals in the annual Sydney Smash, which is expected to draw another sell out crowd.

Entertainment will continue to be at the heart of the Sixers match day this summer. A number of crowd favourite match day themes will return, including Christmas, with carols on the SCG, the Beach Party and Sixers Can | You Can, the match aligned with the Sony Foundation’s Youth Cancer program.

Last year the Sixers attracted an average home attendance of 24,878 fans per game, the second largest of any sporting team in Sydney behind the Swans.

“We are very excited for another summer of Big Bash, and to host seven games at the SCG," said Sixers General Manager Jodie Hawkins.

“It’s a great opportunity for our Members and fans to come out and support the teams at the best cricket ground in the country, and to meet some of their favourite players.

“We are really excited about some of the concepts we have been working on for our match day and can’t wait to unveil them on December 22. It can’t come quick enough.”

Tickets for BBL 08 are expected to go on sale in October.
