Geelong to host cricket’s biggest stars at T20 World Cup
GMHBA Stadium will play host to three Sri Lankan games when the T20 World Cup hits Geelong in October 2020.
Further bolstering Geelong’s standing as Australia’s leading regional events city, GMHBA Stadium will host six group matches in what will be the first time the ICC T20 World Cup has been held in Australia.
The redevelopment of GMHBA Stadium, a G21 Priority Project, has allowed the stadium to host a more diverse range of events.
Geelong is the only regional city to host a men’s match in the T20 World Cup 2020, alongside other major cities including Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Hobart, Perth and Sydney. For the first time, men’s and women’s competitions will be played as standalone events in the same host country and in the same year.
With more people watching cricket than ever before, the announcement is a massive boost for Geelong. Thousands of people are expected to visit the region to catch all the colour and excitement that T20 Cricket brings.
