Craig Bellamy says there will be a real buzz around Melbourne's sporting precinct on Easter Monday when Storm host the Warriors in a holiday blockbuster.

With a big crowd expected at AAMI Park, Bellamy is hopeful his side will rise to the occasion on a big day with both Storm and the Warriors desperate to return to the winner's list.

"It's a pretty special day to be quite honest," Bellamy said.

"We always get a lot of Kiwis to come to barrack for the Warriors.

Easter Monday football comes to AAMI Park. Storm v Warriors, April 6, 5pm. Get your tickets.

"Easter Monday is a big day. There is going to be a real buzz around the place on Monday. Hopefully our guys will get some benefit out of that."

The Warriors shape as a dangerous proposition for Melbourne with Andrew McFadden's side holding a strong record against Storm also having enjoyed recent success at AAMI Park. 

"They're all danger games, they're all worth two points so they are all tough games," Bellamy said.

"The Warriors always seem to play well here, they get plenty of support here.

"They've got one or two players coming back as well. They're a very dangerous side, it doesn't matter where you play them or when you play them."

In what always shapes as a close contest, Storm will host the Warriors on Monday 6 April, kicking-off at the family friendly time of 5pm at AAMI Park.

With a strong crowd expected, the Club encourages fans to purchase their ticket prior to game day and get to AAMI Park early in order avoid the qeues at the box office and gates. View the Round 5 Game Day information for all public transport and parking details.
