All aboard for the McDonald's Super Smash
Published on 22 Oct 2016
Knights fans can enjoy the lead up to the Christmas holiday season by getting boundary side and watching the action packed McDonalds Super Smash. Seddon Park, Hamilton and the Bay Oval, Mt Maunganui will be host to 7 home games during December.
The finals will be played at the home venue of the highest-placed team, rather than at grounds confirmed at the outset of the competition.
New Zealand Cricket chief executive David White said the McDonald's Super Smash was designed to capture the imagination and enthusiasm of kiwis as they approached and enjoyed the summer holiday season.
"There has always been a 'happy days' element to this time of the year and we think it's perfect for attracting New Zealanders of all demographics - mums, dads, teen and tweens ," said Mr White.
"The twenty-over format is all about entertainment and having fun, and we have unashamedly built the competition around that."
5 of the 7 of the Knights home games will be televised on SKY Sport. In addition, SKY Sport will televise live both the elimination final and the grand final.
Mr White said a lot of energy had been spent on creating a dynamic, modern and exciting format, tailored around meeting the demands of all New Zealanders.
"We've listened closely to what people want in terms of the domestic T20 competition and believe the new McDonald's Super Smash is ideally positioned to meet those demands."
