Mayor Bruce Harwood:

The biggest crowd for a Big Bash
match at GMHBA Stadium so far is just under 24,000 people. Given the Renegades
are the defending champions, it’s the season opener and Aaron Finch is likely
to be playing, there’s a strong chance we’ll see that broken comfortably.

That would be a great way to
start a huge 12 months of cricket in Geelong, with the T20 World Cup also coming
to town in October 2020.

David Lever, Acting General Manager of
BBL, Commercial and Marketing, Cricket Victoria:

Geelong and the wider Western region have been
fantastic supporters of the Renegades over the last two years in Geelong.

With such a fantastic venue at GMHBA Stadium, we’re looking forward to a packed
house this season.

The club has put another strong squad together
and we’re looking forward to seeing Colac’s own local hero Aaron Finch lead the
team onto GMHBA Stadium on December 19.
