The WA Government, through Tourism Western Australia, has successfully bid to host 11 International Cricket Council (ICC) World T20 (WT20) matches in Perth in 2020.

Six men’s matches will be played at Perth Stadium and five women’s matches will be hosted at the WACA Ground, with fixtures to be announced in early 2019.

Thousands of people are expected to travel to Perth from interstate, and overseas, for the men’s tournament alone, generating an estimated $23 million in visitor expenditure.

The matches will be broadcast into key tourism markets including the Eastern States, UK, USA, Singapore, Malaysia, South Africa, New Zealand and the emerging market of India, showing off our new stadium and Perth’s recent transformation.
