The Heat will join all WBBL teams in Tasmania for the start of the competition, with matches to be played in Hobart and Launceston.
Brisbane will play five games in Tasmania, with two games in Hobart and three in Launceston. It is expected the competition will then continue as scheduled once the opening block of games in Tasmania is completed.
The Heat will open their season with two games against the Perth Scorchers at Blundstone Arena on October 17 and 19 before taking on the Melbourne Stars (Oct 23), Adelaide Strikers (Oct 24) and Hobart Hurricanes (Oct 26) in Launceston.
Changes to the published schedule have been made in response to public health conditions, state border restrictions and their related impacts. The Weber WBBL is committed to ensuring the safety of all fans, participants, and the wider community throughout the competition.
Twelve of the first 20 matches will be played at their originally scheduled date and time, including the season opener between the Sydney Sixers and Melbourne Stars on Thursday, October 14 from 7:40pm AEDT, now at Blundstone Arena.
