Tickets are now on sale for the highest profile rugby league game to be held in Melbourne’s south-east – the Storm v North Queensland Cowboys NRL trial at Casey Fields on Saturday, February 29.
Storm has partnered with the City of Casey in what will be a festival of rugby league, culminating with the final pre-season game for coach Craig Bellamy’s team prior to the start of the new season.
Tickets are available here with big discounts available for Storm 2020 members.
Storm junior members will be admitted free of charge, with adult member tickets just $10.
Casey Fields Memberships are now available for $30 (adults) and $10 (juniors), which includes entry to the trial as well as one NRL home game at AAMI Park during the regular season.
General admission prices for non-members for the Casey trial are $20 for adults and $5 for juniors.
Storm will also use the trial as an opportunity to raise funds for the Victorian Bushfire Disaster Appeal.
Storm CEO Dave Donaghy said the club received a great response when plans for the trial were announced late last year.
“We’d love to pack out Casey Fields with Storm members and the feedback we have received about bringing a game to the south-east has been overwhelmingly positive,” he said.
“Casey and the surrounding areas are a real stronghold for Storm members and rugby league fans with seven of Victoria’s local rugby league clubs located in this part of Melbourne.
“We are looking forward to having those local clubs involved in our Festival of Footy and helping to grow the game at the grassroots level.”
Storm will start its pre-season campaign at the NRL Nines at HBF Park in Perth on February 14-15 with matches against Manly and Brisbane in the qualifying rounds.
It will be followed by a trip to New Zealand’s North Island for a trial match against the Warriors at Central Energy Trust Arena in Palmerston North on Saturday, February 22.
