BBL set to welcome crowds
The Men’s Big Bash League 2020-21 season will see crowds at the stadiums amid pandemic.
The tickets for December matches in Hobart, Launceston, Canberra, Brisbane and the Gold Coast are on sale. Perth will be hosting BBL games in January. However, tickets for Adelaide matches are yet to be on sale. Melbourne’s MCG and Marvel Stadium are also likely to see fans at the latter stage of the tournament.
“We are thrilled to welcome our Big Bash fans around the country back to the cricket this summer,” BBL chief Alistair Dobson said.
“The first release of tickets for KFC BBL|10 is another major milestone in the build-up to a huge season and a testament to the excellent collaboration between governments, venues our Clubs and the League.
“We can’t wait for our stadiums around Australia to be filled with the colours and sounds of the Big Bash and ensure everyone enjoys their day or night out at the cricket in a safe way.”
Australia’s international cricket games have been seeing crowds in the stands. All of India’s tour of Australia matches are going to have crowds. The Sydney Cricket Ground and Adelaide Oval will see 50% of the respective capacities. Meanwhile, Melbourne Cricket Ground will be having 25% and the Gabba will have highest percentage – 75%.
The tenth edition of Big Bash League will kick off on December 10. Defending champions Sydney Sixers will take on Hobart Hurricanes in Hobart in the opening game.
