Match Day Info - Home Derby

11 January 2018

Here's everything you need to know about this Friday night's massive Etihad Stadium Derby against the Melbourne Stars.

The Melbourne Renegades will be looking to make it two-from-two against rivals Melbourne Stars this Friday night at Etihad Stadium.

The Renegades will be looking to bounce back after a disappointing loss at the hands of the Perth Scorchers on Monday night.

It will also mark Brad Hodge’s first game as captain, after taking over the top role from Aaron Finch and Cameron White, who have both departed the Renegades for international duties.


We've sold out of reserved seats for the Derby, but general admission seats are still available.

We recommend that you purchase GA tickets via Ticketmaster here to avoid queues at the ground tonight. Tickets will also be available at the gate.

You can also sign up as a Double Up 2 game member and get GA access with your membership, subject to capacity.
