The final regular-season KFC Big Bash League |06 match has arrived and it will bring with it a post-match fireworks display to celebrate the most important Scorchers of all – you, the fans.
The Scorchers will on Saturday celebrate two huge milestones, with an unprecedented 10th-consecutive regular-season sell-out expected to result in the Club’s 500,000th fan walking through the gates.
That’s half a million of you since the inaugural BBL|01 who have enjoyed all the excitement of the Big Bash and #TheFurnace.
From the action on the field, to the activities in the Fan Zones or chill-out areas, BBL|06 has had something for everyone at #TheFurnace.
Every home match has embraced a theme this season, with the final match celebrating the impact the WBBL has had on cricket across Australia, with massive increases in participation levels among girls and women.
That impact will be recognised with the first double-header of the season, with the WBBL clash between the Scorchers and Adelaide Strikers starting at 1:35PM and the BBL|06 game against the Melbourne Stars starting at 6:15PM.
Gates to the Ground are opening at 1PM, so if you have a BBL ticket, ensure you get down to #TheFurnace to support your Scorchers.
In addition, the curtain-raising MILO T20 Blast matches on-ground will feature only girls, with the young players getting the thrill of playing on the hallowed surface of the WACA Ground.
The day will end with a fireworks display to say thank you to the Club’s fans for all the support, so if you have tickets to the match, ensure you stick around and enjoy the show.
