The 2017–18 Ashes Series is coming to Townsville!

The biennially held series of Test cricket matches between England and Australia will make its return to Australia for the 2017/2018 series. It will be played at five venues across Australia between 23 November 2017 and 8 January 2018 as both countries battle it out to retain and regain ownership of the celebrated Ashes.


The final Ashes Tour warm-up match will be held at Tony Ireland Stadium, at The Riverway in Townsville from November 15-18 2017. November’s clash will be the first time Townsville has hosted an Ashes game in our city since 1962.
