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
“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
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.
