8 August 2016 International Women’s Cricket Comes to Coffs

The Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars

The Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars will take on South Africa at the C.ex Coffs International Stadium in November for the final two One-Day International matches of the 2016 Women’s International Cricket Series.


“Being chosen to host an event of this calibre in Coffs Harbour is an amazing opportunity,” said Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight.

“I’m thrilled that we will be able to showcase women’s cricket at such an elite level. The Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars are the world’s number one team and they are the top role models for young female players throughout Australia.

“Women’s cricket is also one of the country’s fastest growing sports so we can expect to see a lot of interest from cricket fans for this event.”

The fixtures are the result of a new partnership between Coffs Harbour City Council and Cricket Australia.

“After successfully hosting the Sheffield Shield earlier this year, we were able to display the amazing facilities and capabilities that C.ex Coffs International Stadium has to offer,” said Daniel Heather, Council’s Section Leader Stadium and Major Events.

“Coffs Harbour is the only Australian regional destination for this international series - with the other matches being played in Sydney and Canberra - so will provide a great boost to both local cricket and the broader sports community in the region.”

The game will be played at C.ex Coffs International Stadium in Stadium Drive on November 27 and 29, 2016. Entry will be completely FREE with Grandstand seating available on a first-come-first-served basis.
