Super Smash to light up Hagley Oval

It’s a jam-packed January at Hagley Oval this summer with the announcement of the Super Smash schedule for 2020/21.

New Zealand’s premier male and female cricketers will light up Hagley Oval in a series of five double-header clashes running from Jan 10th – Jan 30th.

The Canterbury KINGS have been dealt the lucky hand and will be the first team to play under the new floodlights when they host the Central Stags at 7pm on Sunday January 10.

Canterbury Cricket Chief Executive, Jez Curwin is thrilled to host the first cricket match under lights.

“Hagley Oval is one of the best grounds in the country and with lights, it’s just taking it to another level,” he said.

“It’s going to be a great way to say thanks to the community for their support and we’re looking forward to seeing the embankment full of Canterbury fans.”

The Canterbury Magicians will also have the opportunity to play under the lights just one week later on Friday 15th January v the Northern Spirit which is set to be the first women’s game under lights in New Zealand.
