Cricket Tasmania and the Hobart Hurricanes proudly announce an extension of their partnership with Wrest Point and Country Club Tasmania.
Wrest Point and its sister venue in Launceston - Country Club Tasmania, will become the Official Live Sites for all Hurricanes BBL away matches - providing the opportunity for members and fans of #TasmaniasTeam to gather as one and support their heroes.
Wrest Point is also now the Official Entertainment Venue of the Ricky Ponting Medal, Cricket Tasmania's end-of-season ‘night of nights’ to recognise the summer that was.
This black tie event to close the 2018/19 season is locked in for Friday, 5 April and fans wishing to attend the event are asked to book their tickets ahead of time to avoid missing out.
”We had a fantastic season with the Hurricanes last year, hosting the Ricky Ponting Medal here at Wrest Point and culminating in the watch party for several hundred fans on the lawn,” Wrest Point General Manager Dominic Baker said.
“The success of the watch parties confirmed for us that fans want a “home away from home” - somewhere the purple masses can gather when the Hurricanes play away games,” he said.
"We're thrilled to extend our partnership with Wrest Point in Hobart and the Country Club in Launceston," said Cricket Tasmania CEO, Nick Cummins.
"Our fans will no doubt enjoy the activations planned for the Live Sites and to have the opportunity to host our marquee event for the season at Tasmania's premier entertainment venue is fantastic."
Members and fans won't have to wait long to enjoy the fun and excitement of an Official Hurricanes Live Site with the first one scheduled around our season opener starting at 7pm this Saturday 22 December in the Onyx Bar at Wrest Point and the Casino Bar at Country Club.
