It marks the first time the Renegades have opened their season at Marvel Stadium since the title-winning BBL|08 season.
GMHBA Stadium in Geelong will also host two Renegades matches in early January as the club looks to build on the its strong support base in Geelong and along the Surf Coast.
The matches in Geelong are delivered with the support of the Victorian Government as part of broader support for regional tourism on the Bellarine Peninsula and providing an economic boost to the Geelong region.
The schedule sees 11 Renegades matches broadcast on the Seven Network/Foxtel with a further three matches exclusive to Foxtel.
Incoming Melbourne Renegades General Manager James Rosengarten said the club was looking forward to a full schedule at Marvel Stadium and returning to Geelong.
“I’d like to thank the respective management of Marvel Stadium and GMHBA Stadium for their ongoing commitment to the Melbourne Renegades. We’re really excited about the potential in this season – hopefully playing in front of big crowds,” Rosengarten said.
“Geelong is central to our ongoing planning – our data tells us Geelong is a strong network of Renegades support and we want to make the most of that. We think having two games in January just after New Year is a great fit for us in attracting cricket fans and holiday-makers alike.”
The news follows the recent appointment of David Saker as the club’s BBL Head Coach.
