The 2016–17 Sheffield Shield season was the 115th season of the Sheffield Shield, the domestic first-class cricket competition in Australia. It started on 25 October 2016 and finished on 30 March 2017.[1] There was a break between December and January for the Big Bash League,[1] the first round of matches were played as day/night games in preparation for Australia's day/night Test match against Pakistan on 15 December 2016.[2] A second day/night round of fixtures took place in round five of the tournament.[3][4]

Victoria qualified for the final after their 8 wicket win against Western Australia in round 9 of the competition.[5] Victoria secured a home tie in the final, with an innings victory against Queensland in round 10.[6] However, the Melbourne Cricket Ground was unavailable for the fixture, so it took place at Traeger Park in Alice Springs,[6] they faced South Australia in the final, for the second consecutive year.[7] Victoria won the competition with a first-innings lead in the final, after the match finished as a draw,[8] it was their 31st tournament win and their third consecutive title.[8]
