ANZ STADIUM TO HOST GRAND FINAL DAY
The NRL and NSW Government have agreed to relocate the Telstra Premiership Grand Final from the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) to Stadium Australia.
A crowd capacity of 40,000 has been approved for the Sunday 25 October Grand Final Day which will feature the Telstra Premiership Men’s and Women’s deciders.
The agreement to relocate from the SCG was made after the planned redevelopment of Stadium Australia, which would have closed the venue, did not proceed. The relocation will ensure more fans can attend the Grand Final Day.
NRL Chief Executive Andrew Abdo said the game was excited to have even more fans at the live Grand Final day at Stadium Australia.
“Stadium Australia is the biggest venue in NSW and that means more of our fans will be able to experience Grand Final Day live,’’ he said.
“This year will be a historic Grand Final Day. The teams competing would have overcome all challenges in front of them and we will experience the culmination of a season like no other. We are working on innovative ways to showcase the pre-game entertainment and returning to Stadium Australia will provide us with the space to put on the most entertaining show possible.
“We can’t wait to see 40,000 fans at the venue. Our fans have been so patient and loyal throughout the season and having crowd caps increase for the Finals Series is the perfect way to acknowledge that loyalty.
“This year has been the most unpredictable year in our game’s history, we’ve faced unprecedented challenges and I feel like the best football is yet to come.”
Mr Abdo thanked the NSW Government for their ongoing support during the pandemic.
“I want to congratulate the NSW Government for the way in which they have managed the pandemic. Their contact tracing has been world class and has enabled a crowd of 40,000 to attend our Grand Final Day,’’ he said.
“We thank them for their support throughout the season and we will continue to follow all public health orders to ensure the general community remains healthy.”
NSW Minister for Tourism Stuart Ayres said Stadium Australia and Sydney were a perfect fit for a blockbuster NRL Grand Final.
“Stadium Australia has hosted many of Australia’s most iconic moments in sporting history and the 2020 NRL Grand Final will be among them,” Minister Ayres said.
“I encourage NRL fans attending the Grand Final to stay COVID safe and make the most of the electric atmosphere in Sydney by making a weekend of it, booking a hotel staycation and getting out to enjoy the hospitality and attractions of the city.”
