Renegades’ push for Big Bash success will head to Geelong this weekend with
the club set to hold a five-day camp on the eve of the KFC BBL|07 season.
In partnership with the City of Greater Geelong and the Victorian Government,
the Renegades will host a Family Day on Sunday 10 December 2017 from 11:00am, visit
local schools and stage an important practice match.
The camp will bring
locals closer to their heroes. Led by captains Aaron Finch, who grew up in Colac, and Amy Satterthwaite the
Renegades will also take on the Sydney Sixers in a double-header at GMHBA
Stadium on 3 January 2018.
The Renegades commitment to the Geelong region has been further enhanced by
the formation of a partnership with Avalon Airport.
Throughout the Big Bash season Avalon Airport will be a Co-Major partner for
the WBBL side and Official Partner for the BBL team.
The double-header in January will feature a special Nickelodeon flavour with
several activations in place for kids, and the young at heart, to enjoy.
Renegades Chief Executive Stuart Coventry said the club is committed to providing
a great day of family entertainment.

Councillor Bruce Harwood - Mayor
Geelong is thrilled to host the Melbourne Renegades for their training camp
ahead of the BBL T20 double-header in January at the GMHBA stadium.
BBL is proving a massive hit for cricket fans across Australia, and hosting
a team in Geelong for a pre-season training camp is another opportunity for
fans to see their sporting heroes in action.
Having the Renegades train and spend time with the local community is a
testament to how much we love our cricket in Geelong and the quality of our
fantastic sporting facilities.
We’re proud to be bringing the first ever Big Bash double-header in regional
Victoria this summer.
Events like these give locals the chance to see their heroes live in their
own backyard, and visitors the opportunity to see all our region has to
The December camp involving both the men’s and women’s teams will boost the
local economy and inspire our kids to follow in the footsteps of Aaron Finch
and Sophie Molineux.

The Big Bash blockbuster in Geelong will attract visitors and create a buzz around the town.
Justin Giddings - Avalon Airport CEO
We’re really excited to be involved with the Renegades this season.
The population throughout the south west of Victoria swells during the
summer, so we see this as a nice fit and we’re really happy the Melbourne
Renegades will have a strong presence in the region.
The Big Bash competition has captured everyone’s imagination throughout its
early years and we’re looking forward to being part of the continued growth
of the league and the Renegades.
This really is Renegades territory - our BBL Captain Aaron Finch is from
Colac, Tim Ludeman grew up in Warrnambool and we’re proud of our connection
to Victoria’s south west corridor.
The opportunity to spend time in the community ahead of the start of the
season will be invaluable for our players.
We’re really excited about taking our brand and the entertainment we can
deliver to cricket fans of all ages throughout the region.
