Below are the technical specification outlining how to make and upload files for the Sight Screen for the 2020/21 WBBL season.
Venues and specs are subject to change as the fixture is finalised.
We recommend bookmarking this website and joining our MKTG specs mailing list to make sure you always have the latest information.
Sight Screen are two large square screens that sit at either end of the oval. You are able to supply static or animated content for this space.
If creating in play animated content, you must also provide a static version of the last frame of your animation which will be held on the screen. In play animated content runs for 5 seconds before freezing on the last frame.

What works best
What to avoid
Due to common cricket camera angles, the right most 300px of the sight screen is seen in close-up often.
Consider having a smaller logo, or other key component of your content on the right of your designs to make the most of this.
Due to the direct line of sight with the players and umpires on the field, there are careful considerations required in relation to on ground displays. Brand colours and creatives will be subject to sign off by the ICC match officials within 24 hours of the match.
There will be a screening of content to the ICC match officials before the season commences. This date is yet to be set and you will be informed when it is. We recommended that you have your content delivered in time for this viewing so you don’t run the risk of last minute changes.
BBL uses a white ball, so if you have a large amount of white in your creative, you should consider a less bright version or a reverse option as a back up
