There’s no better way to spend your summer holidays than enjoying a night out at the Big Bash!

A Brisbane Heat match is packed full of action, featuring big hits and classic catches. Jump out of your seat and party alongside Heat fans in the grandstand and soak up the buzzing atmosphere as you cheer on your favourite team in teal.

There’s plenty of ways to enjoy yourself at Heat match this summer. Here’s everything you need to know… 


  • GAMES: The Brisbane Heat are playing 7 home games in total this season, with 5 games at The Gabba, 1 game on the Gold Coast and 1 game in Cairns!
  • DATES: All games are scheduled within the school holiday period, running between 15 December – 22 January 2023. See all dates and times HERE. 
  • LENGTH: Big Bash games are short and sharp, running for approximately 3 hours, but there’s plenty of things to do before the game, so arrive early! 
  • PRICING: Tickets start at an affordable $8 for kids, $22 for adults and $48 for families. Grab your tickets HERE.
  • PARKING AT METRICON STADIUM: Parking passes are available to pre-purchase via Ticketek for our games at Metricon Stadium.
  • PUBLIC TRANSPORT: Ticket holders can catch a free bus or train to and from the game. Plan your journey via Translink. 
  • BAG CHECK: Be sure to travel light when attending our games. Bags larger than an A4 piece of paper are not permitted inside the venue. 
  • WEATHER: If it's raining on game day, we encourage fans to still purchase tickets and make their way safely to the stadium. Rain can sometimes delay game play, but in the vast majority of cases we will still get enough overs in to deliver a result. Reduced over matches can be very exciting and we have lots of ways to keep you entertained during rain delays. If less than six overs are completed during the entire match and no result is recorded for the match, fans will be entitled to a 100% refund. More info in the 2021-22 Cricket Australia Refund Policy.
