  • SA - Thursday 11th December (Day 3)
  • QLD - Friday 19th December (Day 3)
  • VIC - Sunday 28th December (Day 3)
  • TAS - Sunday 11th January (T20 double header featuring the Hobart Hurricanes v Perth Scorchers and the Tasmanian Roar v ACT Meteors)
  • NSW - Friday January 16 - ODI Australia v England

This season 667 ACA past player members have registered. The $350 payment will be made to members in April 2015.

Further information on how to obtain the grant payment will be provided to members in the new year.
