The revised Big Bash League fixture has finally been unveiled, with matches to be held in four states and territories as part of the competition's touring hub model in December.

Cricket Australia confirmed on Thursday that the opening bracket of matches, beginning December 10, will be held in Tasmania and Canberra, with the competition morphing into a travelling roadshow because of COVID-19 restrictions.

“We are working closely with the Tasmanian government to ensure we can deliver a fun and safe experience for our members and fans in attendance, seeing we will be delivering these matches in a new, COVID-normal environment. Venues will be at a 50 per cent capacity as per the government’s framework for COVID-19 safe events and activities."

Officials hope the easing of border restrictions around the country will allow matches after Christmas to be held in all states without the need to quarantine.

The season will end in Melbourne, which will include the final being staged at the MCG.
