Countdown to Perth Double Header
In 92 days the 2018 season kicks off!
Storm will open their campaign in blockbuster fashion as part of the Perth Double Header.
History will be made in what will be the first marquee-sporting event to be held at the city’s newly-build stadium.
Melbourne Storm will face the Canterbury Bulldogs in the second game of the night after the Rabbitohs and Warriors lock horns in the earlier game.
Round 1 is also set to be champion fullback Billy Slater’s 300th NRL game.
Fans will be treated to two high-quality games of rugby league for the price of one with tickets starting from just $20 for adults and $50 for families.
The brand new Perth venue will be the third largest stadium in Australia with a 60,000-seat capacity and state of the art facilities.
Storm have played five games in Perth over their history, winning three of them. They ventured there last season to again play the Rabbitohs where they produced a 14-6 victory.
