It’s the ‘summer of cricket’ with T20 international and Big Bash League matches being held on the Gold Coast for the first time.
To bring these events to the Gold Coast, City of Gold Coast joined with the State Government to fund a new international standard ‘drop-in’ cricket pitch installed at Metricon Stadium earlier this year.
These international and national league cricket matches are another extension of the 2018 Commonwealth Games legacy which injected almost $2 billion into the local economy including major upgrades to local stadiums and sporting facilities across the city including the creation of the $125 million Gold Coast Sports Precinct encompassing Metricon Stadium, Carrara Indoor Sports Stadium and surrounding sporting fields.
Proudly supported by City of Gold Coast, the games will be held at Metricon Stadium in Carrara on:
- 17 November 2018 – Cricket Australia men’s first international match – Gillette T20 Australia vs South Africa
- 22 December 2018 – Big Bash League Brisbane Heat vs Hobart Hurricanes
- 1 January 2019 – Big Bash League Brisbane Heat vs Sydney Sixers
- 5 January 2019 – Big Bash League Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Thunder
