Nickelodeon and Cricket Australia announced that the partnership between the global kids’ entertainment brand and the KFC Big Bash League (BBL) would be renewed for a fourth consecutive season.

The 2019-20 partnership will see Nickelodeon ‘NICKify’ eight BBL matches throughout the season, beginning Friday, December 27 on the Gold Coast, when the Melbourne Stars take on the Adelaide Strikers at Metricon Stadium.

Nickelodeon revealed that SpongeBob SquarePants will headline this season’s activities, with the iconic TV character celebrating his 20th Anniversary with the best summer ever! The friendly sponge will invite a select few fans on the field-of-play during innings breaks to take part in the ultimate Bikini Bottom challenge in hopes of winning a family holiday to Nickelodeon Land at Sea World on the Gold Coast, including accommodation at Sea World Resort and Water Park.

Off the field, the ‘Nick Squad’ will be entertaining kids, and big kids at heart, with a range of fun activities including ‘Nicket’ – Nickelodeon’s take on cricket, a pineapple sunglass hut with a bedazzle station, and new water play activities, featuring pineapple water bombs to keep kids cool throughout the day.

With families making up 36% of total ticket sales over the season, the renewed deal will see Nickelodeon continue to strengthen the BBL’s position as one of the top family-friendly entertainment options of the Australian summer.

General Admission prices for the upcoming BBL season are on sale now, with adult tickets starting from $20, kids tickets from $5, and family tickets from $42.50*.

BBL|09 will feature 56 home and away matches across 42 days from December to February in what is expected to be one of the biggest seasons to date. To view the full fixture for the upcoming BBL|09 season, visit www.bigbash.com.au/fixtures.
