Masters Tour tickets to go on sale

EXCITEMENT is building like a Brett Lee delivery ahead of the Australian Cricketers’ Association (ACA) Masters Tour rolling into Gympie early next month.

A Masters team of Australian cricket legends will be in town between November 6-8 for what is easily the biggest cricket event to have ever been staged in Gympie.

The team of cricket stars coming to Gympie includes Andy Bichel, Greg Blewett, Greg Campbell, Ryan Campbell, Rodney Hogg, Michael Kasprowicz, Darren Lehmann, Jimmy Maher, Greg Matthews, Tom Moody and Greg Ritchie.

The cricket greats arrive on November 6 and an autograph signing by select players, to be confirmed, will take place at Centro Gympie between 1.30 to 2.30pm.

From there, a Sportsman’s Night at the Gympie Civic Centre commencing at 6.30pm will enable Gympie fans to interact with their idols.

Tickets to the unique dinner cost $40 per head and are available from next week from Woodrows Arts and Crafts Mary Street, Goldburgs Menswear and Sportspower.

The dinner involves a sit down meal, memorabilia auction and, excitingly, an opportunity to meet the players and hear their stories.

A highlight of the visit is the day after on November 7 for a Twenty20 match between the cricket legends and a team of Gympie’s best cricketers.

Gates open at 8am ahead of an exhibition match between a Wide Bay representative team and the Sunshine Coast Scorchers. Admission is $5, children under 16 are free.

The headline game is at 1.30pm which will then be followed by an after match program at the Gympie RSL. Tickets are available for purchase from the Gympie RSL.

The countdown is will underway ahead of this rare cricket experience and corporate packages are now available. Interested individuals or businesses wanting to take advantage of a package can contact Scott McIntosh on 0437 730 632 for further details.
