The Melbourne Renegades, after finishing in second place, have chosen Adelaide Oval as their preferred home venue for The Challenger. The match is unable to be held in Melbourne due to state border restrictions and how they apply to travel to Perth for The Final. Under the Weber WBBL|07 Finals structure, The Eliminator will also be held at Adelaide Oval due to the one-day turnaround between matches.
Melbourne-based fans, friends and family of the Renegades will be able to attend the matches at Adelaide Oval, with South Australia easing border restrictions for double-vaccinated travellers on November 23. Any person intending to travel to South Australia from Victoria should familiarise themselves with entry requirements, available at https://www.covid-19.sa.gov.au/travel/entrycheck-sa

Alistair Dobson, Cricket Australia’s General Manager of Big Bash Leagues, said:
“We congratulate the Perth Scorchers, Melbourne Renegades, Brisbane Heat and Adelaide Strikers on qualifying for the Weber WBBL|07 Finals.
“The Finals series features the best of the best and we know our players will put on a great show for our fans at the Adelaide Oval and Optus Stadium, plus all those watching in prime time.
“We want to thank the Melbourne Renegades and their fans for their understanding around being unable to play Finals matches in Victoria due to state border restrictions. They, along with the Melbourne Stars, Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder have spent the entire season on the road following a quarantine period to begin the campaign. We thank them, along with all players, staff and match officials across the competition, for their commitment to the Weber WBBL.
“We look forward to three great nights of Finals cricket in Adelaide and Perth and crowning the Weber WBBL champions on Saturday night.”
