“The Women’s Big Bash League is a great addition to Optus Sport. We’ve made sure fans don’t miss out on any of the cricket action this summer by adding a 24/7 channel to Optus Sport,” Ben White, Managing Director of Marketing and Product at Optus, said.

Melbourne Stars chief executive Clint Cooper said that he was pleased to see its partnership with Optus grew in over the past 12 months. He said that they were lucky that they had a partnership with a company that supports women's sports. He also recognised the telecommunications company as a leader in innovative sponsorships.

White said that the company is keen in building partnership with the Melbourne Stars by aligning to its vision, One Club: Two Teams. The telecommunications company considered the partnership with the men's and women's team as natural progression for the company. He announced that Meg Lanning joined fellow Stars Kevin Pietersen and Glenn Maxwell as Optus Ambassadors. They will be featured in the company's summer campaigns.
