Fixtures[edit]

Format of the group stage was a double round-robin tournament, where each team played each other team twice. Games were grouped into weekends, where three-four teams sometimes played in one city over that weekend, this meant that teams hosted matches in their opponent's home city, or in a neutral city. As there were 56 games played over 7 weeks, it was common to have multiple matches in a day (up to five), and matches being played simultaneously at different grounds.

There were 14 double header fixtures with the men's Big Bash League, and the semi-finals and final were also played as a double header.
