Sydney is set to be overtaken by a purple wave with 10,000 Storm fans expected to make the trip up for Sunday’s NRL Grand Final.
ANZ Stadium may be 883 kilometres away from AAMI Park but our boys will have plenty of support for the premiership decider.
Storm have felt that support in record numbers this year, reaching 20,000 members for the first time in their history and the second highest home attendance of any team this year.
The purple army will be there in full voice on Sunday night and every bit of that will count to help get Craig Bellamy and his men over the line.
Melbourne will be taking on North Queensland in what will be just the second NRL Grand Final in 11 years not featuring a team from NSW team.
