History will be made at one of Rugby League’s most iconic grounds, with NSWRL set to bid farewell to Parramatta’s Pirtek Stadium when it hosts this year’s Grand Final Day on Sunday, 25 September.
All three NSWRL senior competitions - Intrust Super Premiership NSW, Ron Massey Cup and Sydney Shield – will hold their showpieces as part of an action-packed triple-header.
The venue will hold the three deciders for the second consecutive year before it is likely to be demolished at season’s end.
NSWRL Chief Executive Officer David Trodden said it was a privilege hosting what appears to be the closing event of the iconic and first-rate venue.
“Pirtek Stadium has hosted many historic moments and it’s fantastic that we get the opportunity to be a part of history,” Trodden said.
“The stadium still offers first-class facilities for everyone. From the playing surface itself to the spectators’ viewing areas, corporate hospitality suites and more, Pirtek Stadium is a great venue and the perfect place to stage our NSWRL Grand Final Day.
“Last year’s Grand Final Day was a great success and we hope the quality of Rugby League on display this year tops that.”
