The Perth Scorchers are set to celebrate with their dedicated fans a trio of milestones at the Club’s final home match of the KFC Big Bash League |06 regular-season on Saturday at #TheFurnace.
The Scorchers will host their 10th-consecutive sold-out regular-season match when the team takes to the field against the Melbourne Stars on Saturday, while the Club is also anticipating surpassing half a million fans having passed through its gates since the inaugural BBL|01.
The match also represents a poignant moment for the Scorchers, with it potentially being the last regular-season BBL match played at the WACA Ground prior to the team’s move to Perth Stadium.
The Scorchers will celebrate the significant milestones by hosting a fireworks display for the sell-out crowd at the conclusion of the match against the Stars.
The Club is also on track to break another record in surpassing 20,000 spectators at all four regular-season BBL home matches this tournament, with all games having sold-out prior to the new year.
The day also marks the Club’s first double-header of the season, with the Rebel Women’s Big Bash match between the Scorchers and the Adelaide Strikers starting at 1:35pm and leading into the BBL clash against the Stars at 6:15pm.
Scorchers BBL Head Coach Justin Langer said: "The support our loyal and parochial fans give us is unbelievable and provides us with such a boost at every home game.
"There's nothing quite like the atmosphere when it's a full house at #TheFurnace.
"Ten consecutive sell-outs and 500,000 fans through the gates at #TheFurnace is proof that the Western Australian public has got right behind us since the Club's birth and we want to thank them for their constant and outstanding support.”
