Home run for Docklands

04 Aug 2016

By Rhianna Busler

The Melbourne Renegades cricket team recently signed a contract locking in Etihad Stadium as their home turf.

The club announced a new multi-year venue agreement on July 27 that will see the Renegades play at Etihad Stadium for the next five years.

Renegades CEO Stuart Coventry said he was delighted to be able to commit to staying at Etihad.

“The first five years of the Big Bash League (BBL) has been a period of significant growth for both the league and the Renegades and we are really pleased to continue our relationship with Etihad Stadium,” Mr Coventry said.

“We’re in a unique position in having the only stadium where our members and fans are guaranteed to see their favourite players in action – rain, hail or shine. Etihad Stadium gives us the platform to deliver that summer fun to families,” Mr Coventry added.

Etihad Stadium CEO Michael Green said he was pleased to venture to the next era with the club.

“We are delighted to extend our relationship with the Melbourne Renegades, which will see their BBL and WBBL home games played at Etihad Stadium over the next five seasons,” Mr Green said.

“We believe Etihad Stadium generates a magnificent atmosphere for T20 cricket and we are a tremendous fit for the Melbourne Renegades.”

With the first BBL home game set to start on December 22, Docklands can expect to witness some exciting matches ahead.
