Optus Stadium will play host to seven Big Bash League games this summer as the Perth Scorchers look to defend their title.

After a 2021/22 summer that saw just one BBL match played in Perth, Optus Stadium will host a blockbuster schedule of BBL fixtures as part of a stacked summer of cricket that includes the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup and a Men’s Test Match between Australia and the West Indies.

The Scorchers will host their first home match more than 12 months with a Grand Final rematch against the Sydney Sixers on Saturday, December 17 at the family-friendly time of 4:05pm.

Boxing Day BBL action returns to Optus Stadium when the Scorchers meet the Adelaide Strikers at 6:15pm on Monday, December 26.

A clash with the Melbourne Stars on Thursday, December 29 rounds out the Scorchers’ home fixtures for 2022 before a clash with the Sydney Thunder rings in the New Year on Wednesday, January 4, 2023.

The Brisbane Heat (Jan 7) and the Hobart Hurricanes (Jan 18) make their return to Optus Stadium after more than a year before the Scorchers complete their home fixtures with a Sunday afternoon match against the Melbourne Renegades on January 22.

After the Scorchers spent almost the entirety of last season on the road. Perth will be hoping they can replicate their success of last season when they finished on top of the BBL table before winning the Grand Final in Melbourne, and host a final at Optus Stadium.
