Sydney Showground is excited to announce that Cricket Australia and the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW (RAS) have signed a 10 year agreement to host all Sydney Thunder games at Spotless Stadium.
Michael Hussey has re-signed as the Thunder’s captain for the Big Bash League 2015 (BBL), which will be his final season of an illustrious career. The new stadium agreement will see the Thunder based at Spotless until BBL14 in the 2024/25 summer.
“The Spotless Stadium agreement is the culmination of twelve months’ hard work from a number of people at Cricket New South Wales, Cricket Australia and the Royal Agricultural Society,” said Nick Cummins, Sydney Thunder general manager.
“We believe that we have the best stadium in Australia to watch BBL cricket, and I can’t wait to see Mike and the rest of the team take the field in front of a packed house.”
Sydney Showground general manager, Peter Thorpe, said: “We’re over the moon that Spotless Stadium has been chosen as home to Sydney Thunder for the next 10 years. As we’ve found with AFL it’s an incredibly family friendly venue with a unique intimate atmosphere creating a great sporting experience for all.
“With both Sydney Thunder and GWS Giants now calling Spotless Stadium home sports fans can access some of the country’s most loved and sought after on field action all year round right here in the geographical heart of Sydney.”
