Perth Scorchers Members and fans can look forward to a jam-packed summer of cricket and entertainment following the official release of the 2020-21 rebel Women’s Big Bash League and KFC Big Bash League schedules.

WBBL

Following the success of the first standalone season last year, the sixth edition of the rebel Women’s Big Bash League will see more matches than ever before televised live across the nation through broadcast partners Seven and Foxtel, including five weekend matches featuring the Perth Scorchers.

Supporters will be able to watch a livestream of every other Scorchers match on the CA Live App and cricket.com.au.

In a schedule developed to provide flexibility given the current COVID-19 environment, the Perth Scorchers will kickstart their season in Perth on the October 17-18 weekend when they take on the Sydney Thunder and Melbourne Stars across two massive days.

The Scorchers then travel to Hobart the following weekend, before embarking on a three-week hub-style set up in Sydney where they will play eight matches.

The team will then conclude their regular season with a weekend in Melbourne ahead of a three-match finals series scheduled to be played from November 27-29 with times and venues to be confirmed.

Perth Scorchers Women’s Head Coach Shelley Nitschke said;

“It is fantastic that we get to launch the season here on home soil, and the weekend will give families the best chance to come and experience quality cricket, as well as great entertainment,” she said.

“We can’t wait to put on a strong opening performance for our Members and fans and make the most of our home-ground advantage to really kickstart our WBBL campaign. The competition is only getting stronger and we need to be stronger too.

“This season will definitely be a new experience for all involved and we look forward to the challenges and exciting opportunities that lie ahead as we aim to seal a finals berth.

The tenth edition of the KFC Big Bash League will see an earlier launch to the season on 3 December, with the Perth Scorchers to open their campaign at home on Saturday 7 December against the Sydney Sixers.

Scorchers Members and fans will enjoy more family-friendly start times for home matches at Optus Stadium, with majority of the matches scheduled to start at 4.15pm or 5.15pm.

The Boxing Day fixture will once again headline the home schedule, with the Scorchers taking on the Adelaide Strikers.

The five-match KFC BBL|10 finals series has been retained, with the Final to be played on Saturday 6 February 2021.

Perth Scorchers Men’s Head Coach Adam Voges said;

“We’re really looking forward to starting our season strong in our opening home match in front of our Members and fans at Optus Stadium.

“It’s great we are once again playing the traditional Boxing Day match, it’s one of the major highlights for the players as it always draws great crowd numbers.”

General Manager – Commercial, Marketing and Communications, Mr Shay Nasta said;

“The inaugural standalone WBBL season last year was a great success, reflected by the fantastic support we had across our match days along with strong viewership results on a national scale. We’re looking forward to building on this for the upcoming season.

“From a BBL perspective, it’s pleasing that we have been able to bring forward most of our matches to a more family-friendly time following the feedback we received at the end of last season, as well as the regular season concluding within school holidays.

“As we approach the season ahead, we need to remain agile given the current COVID-19 climate and what we are seeing across other competitions, but announcing the fixtures today allows us to move forward with our planning.”

Membership and ticketing information will be shared in due course.
