Crowds capped at 15,000 fans for BBL in Melbourne

Victorian public health officials have advised that the upcoming Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades matches will be capped at 15,000 fans at the MCG and Marvel Stadium respectively.

Capacity has been limited in the interests of protecting public health and delivering a safe environment for all patrons.

Both clubs would like to thank the Victorian Government for their support in delivering fixtures in Melbourne.

Tickets for all matches are on sale now and must be pre-purchased online for both venues. There will be no physical tickets for purchase at either ground.

Both venues will deliver COVID-safe and socially-distanced environments with Marvel Stadium set to host its first sport with crowds since the start of the pandemic.

Both clubs will continue to liaise closely with the Big Bash League and the Victorian Government for the fortnight ahead.

Statement – Melbourne Stars General Manager Nick Cummins
“We can’t wait to welcome as many fans as we can have to the MCG this Friday night. It’s really exciting to have BBL back in Melbourne and it has been a long wait. I know how much the players are looking forward to getting back to the ‘G and playing in front of our fans – whether that’s 15,000 or 50,000. I’d like to thank the MCC for their support and experience from the Boxing Day Test to help us deliver a safe and successful group of home matches.”

Statement – Melbourne Renegades General Manager David Lever
“With this week’s match relocated to Canberra, we’ll now be returning to Marvel Stadium for the Derby – our biggest fixture of the season. The squad takes huge energy out of a sea of red colour at Marvel Stadium and we know 15,000 fans make plenty of noise. We can’t wait to get back in front of our home fans to run out the season on a really strong note. I’d like to thank Marvel Stadium for their support and preparedness in a constantly changing COVID environment.”
