NSW Minister for Jobs and Tourism John Graham, Minister for Sport Steve Kamper, Australian Rugby League Commission Chairman Peter V’landys AM and NRL CEO Andrew Abdo have announced the 2023 NRL and NRLW Telstra Premiership Grand Finals will be played at Accor Stadium on Sunday 1 October.
The ARLC and NSW Government have struck a one-year deal for this year’s Grand Finals, with continuing discussions to take place for matches beyond 2023.
Mr V’landys said it was important to give fans certainty.
“We have worked closely with the NSW Government to reach an agreement for the 2023 Grand Final,” Mr V’landys said.
“We are respectful of the new Labor Government’s priorities at the moment and their focus on the State budget, which is why we have agreed a short-term deal which gives all stakeholders certainty about this year’s Grand Final, and provides all parties the time required to continue discussions about a long-term partnership,” he said.
“I’d like to thank Premier Chris Minns and Ministers Steve Kamper and John Graham who have taken a pragmatic approach to reaching an agreement for this year’s Grand Final. We have a great partnership with the NSW Government and we are grateful for their support of rugby league.”
NRL CEO Andrew Abdo said tickets for the NRL and NRLW Grand Finals would go on sale on August 2.
“The NRL and NRLW Grand Finals represent the pinnacle of the best rugby league competitions in the world,” Mr Abdo said.
“This year’s NRL Premiership has been the closest in decades, delivering the fans the best sports entertainment experience in Australia. The closeness of the competition and unpredictability of results, along with four new teams in an expanded NRLW competition, has given fans of all Clubs an opportunity to see their team on Grand Final day.
“In addition to the Grand Finals at Accor Stadium, we will also have a Fan Festival in Sydney, which will be a great celebration of Rugby League and an opportunity for fans to show their colours and celebrate their team.
“We want to thank the NSW Government for again supporting the NRL and NRLW Grand Finals and working in partnership to deliver a week-long celebration of Rugby League in Sydney.”
NSW Minister for Jobs and Tourism John Graham said: “We all love a Grand Final, but this event has become so much more, making a big social and economic contribution to the State.
“This event attracts thousands of fans from interstate and overseas who also visit Sydney’s many attractions, enjoy shows and arts, eat and drink in our world-class restaurants, supporting jobs in the visitor economy.”
NSW Minister for Sport Steve Kamper said: “Sydney is the nation’s birthplace of rugby league and the heart of its passionate fans, so it is fantastic the NRL and NRLW Grand Finals are remaining in their homeplace once again.
“Rugby league fans will flock to Sydney and Accor Stadium will be abuzz with a capacity crowd on Grand Final day.”
