Tickets to Storm’s 2019 NRL season are now on sale and this year promises to be another memorable one given the club's emerging talent, a potential 400-game milestone and the Grand Final rematch - all at AAMI Park.
We take a look at five blockbuster home games you won’t want to miss.
ROUND 1 – BRONCOS
Our 2019 campaign begins with a Thursday night blockbuster under lights at AAMI Park in round one.
If recent history is anything to go by, this year’s season opener promises to be a thriller.
We last met the Broncos in round 14, with skipper Cameron Smith leading the side to a 32-16 win, amassing 50 tackles and 246 metres gained.
But the final margin only tells part of the story - Storm trailed 12-8 at halftime and Brisbane had an opportunity to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat late in the match.
Earlier last year the Broncos refused to lay down in our clash at Suncorp – a match played at Origin pace with a number of momentum swings throughout.
ROUND 6 – ROOSTERS
The Grand Final rematch will be one of the most hotly anticipated games this season following last year’s heartbreaking loss on the biggest stage.
Storm narrowly missed its chance to clinch back-to-back premierships and the playing group will be keen to even the ledger.
Potential key match ups will include veteran Will Chambers against young rival Latrell Mitchell, as well as a showdown between former Storm teammate Cooper Cronk and his protégé Brodie Croft.
ROUND 7 – ANZAC DAY
Mark your calendar – tickets to our annual ANZAC Day clash against the Warriors will go on sale on March 19.
The most atmospheric of our home games, the pre-game Blackout is a must-see event in Australian sport.
It is a moving experience which sets the stage for the contest to follow.
The Trans-Tasman blockbuster was a sell-out last year, so get in quick when tickets are released next month.
ROUND 17 – SHARKS
Although we recorded a comfortable win over Cronulla in last year’s Preliminary Final, our previous two encounters last season were arm wrestles and the Sharks claimed the points on both occasions.
Tensions boiled over during our round four clash, with Cameron Smith uncharacteristically sin binned and a whopping 33 penalties blown.
Games between the Storm and the Sharks are rarely for the faint hearted, with tough hit-ups and big tackles.
The two teams will continue to provoke each other in Round 17.
ROUND 19 – MANLY
Another chapter in the storied rivalry between Storm and Manly will be penned late in the season.
There is typically no love lost between the two sides and tempers flared in round 11 last year, with four sin bins and one send off.
Since the infamous Battle at Brookvale, matches against Manly have been fiercely fought and another high intensity game is almost a certainty – regardless of ladder positions.
