Welconing the new partnership, Cricket Australia Executive General Manager Operations Mike McKenna stated "it is very exciting to have rebel coming on board to be the naming rights sponsor of the WBBL and we look forward to working with them to make the first season of the competition a successful one.

“The major purpose of the WBBL is to inspire girls to play cricket and it is fantastic to have a well-known Australian company in rebel supporting this ambition.”

Rebel Sport Managing Director Erica Berchtold added “Rebel’s sponsorship of the Women’s Big Bash League reflects our ongoing commitment to women in sport throughout Australia, and is something we are extremely passionate about as a business.”
