A grand final rematch will kick start a Wagga cricket double header.
South Wagga and Wagga City face off in a Twenty20 contest to start the new season next weekend.
It is part of a big weekend of cricket with the first two rounds to be played over Saturday and Sunday.
Along with the grand final rematch with Wagga RSL to play St Michaels and Kooringal Colts to tackle Lake Albert on October 12 before the Blues face Kooringal, St Michaels play Lake Albert and Wagga City and Wagga RSL clash on the following day.
All games will be played at separate grounds.
It is part of a new-look draw for the new-look board structure.
Paul McKelvie has come in as the new operations manager, replacing Mel Rosengren.
After experience as a player at Lake Albert and then as an umpire, he saw the administrative role as the next step.
"It's probably a good time to come into it with a new board and a new role," McKelvie said.
"There is a lot to get into but it has been go so far with a lot of support.
"Mel did a good job and I'm just taking over from her."
One thing McKelvie is looking to do is focus on the competition's junior base.
"I hope to maintain the junior base so we can keep the game growing in the town," he said.
"Numbers are reasonable at the moment, they could be better but they could be worse, and you are always trying to see juniors go through to the senior comp."
Grounds are another focus point and McKelvie also wants maintain openness and transparency to help improve the game's place in Wagga.
This season's draw has a real mix of formats.
Following the opening weekend of Twenty20s, two rounds of one-dayers will be played.
There will be another Twenty20 before three rounds of two-day matches.
A one-dayer will follow, with a later start to the Christmas break following a round of Twenty20s on December 21.
The season resumes on January 11 with two weeks of one-day cricket before the Australia Day break and the remaining two rounds of two-dayers.
First grade will be the only grade to play two-dayers this season with second grade not longer using the longer format.
Friday night Twenty20 games won't be as frequent this season, but there will still be some fast-paced action under lights at Robertson Oval with one round of Twenty20 games to be played over three weeks in the new year.
