Sunday’s early afternoon ‘Marsh brother match-up’ will be the first of four home matches taking place over the summer school holiday period.

The BBL action continues to get better when the Scorchers clash with traditional rivals the Sydney Sixers on Wednesday 6 January.

In other great news for Perth Members and fans, the Scorchers will be bringing back their best moves for the Saturday Night Disco match planned for 9 January against the Sydney Thunder. The themed game was an absolute hit last season with fans encouraged to dress-up and vote for their favourite disco tracks to be played throughout the match.

Perth’s campaign ends with a bang at #TheFurnace when their dangerous attack shapes up against the world’s number one ranked T20 batter Dawid Malan in their clash with the Hobart Hurricanes on Tuesday 12 January.

Optus Stadium will also host a match between the Hobart Hurricanes and Sydney Thunder on Thursday 7 January.
The Scorchers then travel to Sydney and Melbourne for their remaining five matches before the BBL|10 finals series gets underway.

WACA CEO Christina Matthews said it’s a fantastic result for cricket supporters across WA to be able to watch live cricket in Perth this summer and thanked the efforts of all involved.

“I’d like to thank the WA Government, in particular the Western Australian Police Force, Department of Health, Office of the Chief Health Officer and the Chief Health Officer, Optus Stadium and Cricket Australia for their support in bringing Big Bash cricket to Perth as well as our staff for their tremendous efforts and collaboration over the past months to make this happen.

“I also would like to thank our Members, Commercial Partners, fans and the WA cricket community for their support and patience during these challenging times.

“We are looking forward to welcoming them all in their orange at Optus Stadium and putting on a great show as we celebrate 10 years of BBL.”

Minister for Sport and Recreation the Hon. Mick Murray MLA said;

“Western Australia has the best cricket fans and the best cricket stadium in the nation, so it is fitting that some of the best cricket talent in Australia will be headed to Optus Stadium this summer.

“It is exciting that the Perth Scorchers will have the opportunity to play four matches before a home crowd during this summer of cricket.

“This is a fantastic outcome for the State and I thank the WACA, VenuesWest, Cricket Australia, the Chief Health Officer and the Police Commissioner for their work in securing these five games for WA.”
