Cricket Tasmania has welcomed Cricket Australia's announcement that two more BBL10 matches will be played at Bellerive Oval.
It takes the state's total to eight matches in Hobart this season and two in Launceston, of which the Hurricanes will play six.
The additional games will see the Hurricanes play the Melbourne Stars on Saturday, January 2 (5.05pm) and Monday, January 4 (4.05pm).
"This is huge news for Hurricanes members and fans", said Cricket Tasmania chief executive Dominic Baker.
"We had already locked in more Big Bash home and away content than ever before, and these matches against the Stars give Tasmanians more to be excited about in the New Year."
Launceston's fixtures at UTAS Stadium are on Tuesday, December 15 (Hurricanes v Strikers) and Wednesday, December 16 (Scorchers v Stars), both beginning at 7.15pm.
Members' ticket pre-sale begins on Tuesday, with public ticket sales from Friday.
