Peter V’landys confirms Sydney will host the NRL Grand Final 2022

·

Rugby league boss, Peter V’landys, has confirmed the NRL Grand Final 2022 will be held at Sydney’s Accor Stadium on Sunday, October 2.

The decision comes after months of tense negotiations with the NSW government and following a bid from the Queensland government.

Queensland made a desperate late surge and were rated a “60-40” chance of stealing the grand final after tabling a proposal that included hosting up to three NRL deciders as a preamble to the Brisbane Olympics in 2032.

Sydney’s Accor Stadium will host the 2022 NRL grand final.

But Queensland’s bold bid for consecutive deciders at Suncorp Stadium has failed.

Having navigated the COVID-19 crisis, the NRL has opted to return the grand final to rugby league’s traditional home in Sydney after Penrith and Souths played last year’s decider at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium.
