Saturday night’s Brisbane Double Header is officially a sell out after the final remaining tickets to the event were snapped up by fans this morning.
More than 52,000 spectators will converge on Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane this weekend to see four of the competition’s premier clubs participate in an extravaganza of rugby league.
Storm will host reigning premiers North Queensland from 5:30pm before the Sea Eagles take on the Broncos in the evening’s second match-up.
“A sell-out is a wonderful result and a credit to the clubs, broadcasters, Stadium and most importantly the members and fans who have supported this marquee event," Melbourne Storm CEO Dave Donaghy said on Wednesday afternoon.
“There’s a lot of anticipation and excitement from our players and members leading into our game against the Cowboys and Saturday night will certainly be a unique celebration of rugby league at Suncorp Stadium.”
A number of special transport services will run during the afternoon on Saturday, assisting fans travelling to Suncorp Stadium (see below for details).
Storm has partnered with Tourism Events Queensland, Suncorp Stadium, the NRL and Fox Sports as well as the three other participating clubs to bring the NRL Double Header to Queensland this weekend.
