The Otago teams will launch their Super Smash campaigns against Central Districts at the University Oval on November 28.

The 17th edition of the T20 competition will feature all 64 matches being broadcast live on Spark Sport.

Forty of those games will also be broadcast on free-to-air by TVNZ 1 or Duke.

The Volts and the Sparks have two further double-headers at the University Oval — against Northern Districts on December 12 and Canterbury on January 23.

Molyneux Park has been removed from the T20 schedule and replaced by Queenstown.

The Otago teams are hosting Wellington and Auckland at the resort on December 28 and 29 respectively.

The games at Molyneux Park have typically attracted crowds of about 1500, so it will be interesting to see how many people attend the games at John Davies Oval.

The Sparks have only played at the venue twice. They played back-to-back list A games in January 2005.

Canterbury and Wellington teams will open the Super Smash at Hagley Oval on November 26.

The format features the six men’s and six women’s teams playing a double round robin with the top three teams progressing to the playoffs.

The No2 and No3 sides will play each other in an elimination final on January 27 for the right to join the No1 qualifier in the final on January 29.
