The Sydney Sixers will begin their KFC Big Bash League title defence in the competition’s season opener against the Hobart Hurricanes at Blundstone Arena in Tasmania on Thursday, December 10.
The defending champions will play three games in Tasmania to begin BBL|10, before travelling to Queensland later in December.
While the Sixers’ Sydney based fixtures are yet to be announced, it is likely that the SCG will host a number of BBL matches in January after the Test Match. Dates for these fixtures will be released later this month along with ticketing information for the summer.

The BBL has demonstrated its commitment to taking Australia’s most-watched sporting competition to fans around the country with the announcement of its revised schedule.
The match-ups, start times and broadcasters for all KFC BBL|10 regular season games have been confirmed, with venues in Tasmania, ACT, Queensland and South Australia locked in for the 21 matches to be played in December.
Venues for matches scheduled in the New Year will be announced in the coming weeks. The League hopes the easing of border restrictions around the country will allow matches to be played in every state throughout the tournament. The health and safety of players, staff and fans will always remain the number one priority.
All matches will be broadcast live on Foxtel, with the Seven Network airing 18 matches in December live.
Alistair Dobson, Cricket Australia’s Head of Big Bash Leagues, said:
“This is without doubt the most complex fixturing task ever undertaken by the League and we are excited with where it has landed. It has been a difficult year for so many people around Australia and we look forward to bringing the BBL to every state should border conditions allow us to.
“We’re also pleased to provide certainty to our Clubs, players, broadcasters, commercial partners and governments today with confirmation of match-ups, dates and start times for the entire KFC BBL|10 campaign, and venues for matches through to the end of 2020.
“We are working through scenarios for the remaining 35 regular season matches and Finals series to be played in the New Year with our Clubs, broadcasters, partners and governments. An announcement on these venues will be made in the coming weeks.
“The KFC BBL is by far and away the most watched sporting league in the country on a per-match basis and we look forward to that continuing as we celebrate ten years of the Big Bash.”
Sydney Sixers General Manager Jodie Hawkins added “Scheduling this summer of BBL has been incredibly challenging but Cricket Australia have done a great job in ensuring we get to as many of our Club’s home markets as possible, which is a great result for our fans.
“While our Sydney fixtures are yet to be released, we are confident that we will be in a position to play a few matches at the SCG after the Test Match in front of our local Members and fans. We love playing at home and can’t wait to return after winning the title there last season.”
