The Storm are slated to play NRL grand finalists Canberra in a night match on Saturday May 30, with all games expected to be played in Sydney or Queensland.
However the match is scheduled as a home fixture for the Storm and they will be pushing for it to be played behind closed doors in Melbourne.
Melbourne say they aren’t expecting a final decision on the venue for the match from the NRL until mid next week.
“We’re hopeful we can play at AAMI Park,’ Storm football manager Frank Ponissi told AAP.
