Footy Feast Kicks Off 2022 Season

Melbourne Storm fans can look forward to an early season footy feast in 2022 following the release of the NRL season fixture today.

After missing almost two seasons seeing their team play live at home due to the COVID pandemic, Storm members will see their team play five of the first seven rounds at AAMI Park.

Storm’s home game fixture will showcase some of the biggest rugby league rivalries in prime-time slots for families, members and corporate partners across the 11 AAMI Park games. In recognition of the drawing power of Storm, 12 games will be broadcast live, free-to-air on Nine while all matches will be shown on Fox Sports and streamed on Kayo.

Families have the chance to enjoy three Sunday afternoon games throughout the season and a prime Saturday 5.30pm matchup against the Eels in Round 3.

Storm will begin their 2022 campaign on the road against the Wests Tigers on Saturday 12 March following two home trial matches in regional Victoria in late February.

It will then be a home game footy feast for Storm supporters with matches against the Rabbitohs and Eels in Rounds 2 and 3 and the return of Josh Addo Carr and his Bulldogs in Round 4 across three consecutive weekends.

Storm will welcome back another two fan favorites, Dale Finucane and Nicho Hynes, for the Easter Saturday clash in Round 6 when they make their first appearance in Melbourne against their old teammates in the Sharks jersey.

The tradition of ANZAC Day will continue against the Warriors while Storm hope to return to Mount Smart in Auckland for the first time in two years later in the season to play the Warriors.

The must-see games for Storm fans in 2022

The annual Magic Round at Suncorp Stadium will see Storm come up against modern day rivals, the Penrith Panthers, on a Saturday night and the final home game before the bye will be played against traditional rivals, Manly, on a Thursday night when the NRL celebrates Indigenous Round.

The post-Origin run home includes blockbuster home games against the Broncos, Raiders, Titans and Roosters.

Storm CEO, Justin Rodski, said the club was excited to be finally returning to its home at AAMI Park.

“We are really excited for our members and commercial partners who will finally get the chance to see some live football back at AAMI Park,” Rodski said.

“Our members and partners have shown great support of our club over the last two years and the players can’t wait to get back to playing in front a sea of purple come March."

“We are really pleased to have five of our first seven games at home at AAMI Park, and with our Victorian members provided a free membership for 2022, we would hope to see the stands full through those opening rounds of the season.

“This is a particularly family-friendly fixture too. Three Sunday games and a Saturday afternoon against the Eels will give more people more opportunities to see their team live after missing out on so much over the last two seasons.” Rodski said.
