SA20 League Commissioner Graeme Smith today announced that the third season of South Africa’s premier T20 competition will take place from 9th January to 8th February 2025.

The Sunrisers Eastern Cape will be aiming for a third title, having won the first two iterations of the tournament and Smith stated that franchises’ planning is well underway to secure some of the biggest names on the T20 circuit for the 2025 event. 

“Following two successful seasons, our plan is to continue to own the South African summer and provide an opportunity for everyone to enjoy some of the biggest names in world cricket, whether in packed stadiums or via the global broadcast. 

Our fixtures, auction, and player announcements will be revealed over the coming months and planning is already fully in motion. We can’t wait to bring another incredible sport and entertainment event to life for players and fans,” Smith stated.

With highly competitive cricket, evidenced by the log standings only be confirmed after the last group match in Season 2, record attendance, growing global and local viewership, ever-increasing digital engagement and media coverage, and player ratings of above 95% for ‘enjoyment’, the SA20 has quickly positioned itself in the top echelon of global franchise T20 competitions.

The third season of SA20 would be an exciting affair to watch after the success of the opening two seasons. Sunrisers Eastern Cape, owned by the same group as IPL's Sunrisers Hyderabad, have established an absolute domination in the two seasons so far, winning back-to-back titles. In the latest edition, SEC defeated Durban Super Giants by 89 runs in a clinical manner and would be eyeing to retain the precious trophy once again in 2025. In the inaugural season, SEC got the better of Pretorial Capitals in the summit clash of the SA20 league.
