Optus Stadium To Host Scorchers BBL Finals

20 November 2017

The Perth Scorchers will play this season’s KFC Big Bash League finals at Optus Stadium, should the team qualify to host post-season matches.

The Government of Western Australia today confirmed that Optus Stadium would be ready to host the Gillette One-Day International between Australia and England on Sunday 28 January 2018, an announcement welcomed by the Western Australian Cricket Association and Cricket Australia.

News on that announcement, including ticketing information, can be found here.

The announcement means the state-of-the-art facility will also be ready for any Big Bash matches in the event the Scorchers qualify for a seventh-consecutive finals series.

A potential finals series at Optus Stadium presents an opportune transition plan for the Scorchers, with BBL|07 the final season to be staged at the WACA Ground prior to all BBL matches moving to the new venue.
