Ballarat will have to wait longer to host another professional cricket game with the WBBL confirming no matches will be played in Victoria or New South Wales this season.
Eastern Oval was scheduled to host two double-headers on November 13-14 and welcome four WBBL sides - hosts Melbourne Renegades, Melbourne Stars, Sydney Thunder and Perth Scorchers.
The matches were set to bring some of the world's best to Ballarat including Australian captain Meg Lanning, her New Zealand counterpart Sophie Devine and Widen's Leading Woman Cricketer in the World, Beth Mooney.
The seventh edition of the WBBL will be played across South Australia, Western Australian and Queensland with ongoing border closures preventing matches being played in Victoria for a second consecutive season.
Due to the fixture changes, all 59 games will be televised for the first time.
"We understand that this revised schedule means our fans in New South Wales and Victoria won't be able to attend WBBL|07 matches in their own backyard," CA's general manager of Big Bash Leagues Alistair Dobson said.
"(But) to also announce a landmark broadcast footprint is amazing ... passionate supporters will have access to world-class cricket despite the challenges of the pandemic."
