NRLW Grand Final rematch to officially open new Allianz Stadium

The National Rugby League (NRL) has announced that the NRL Telstra Women’s Premiership will now launch the new Allianz Stadium on Friday, September 2.

The Sydney Roosters-St George Illawarra Dragons NRLW fixture – the 2021 Grand Final rematch – will be played as a double-header with the Sydney Roosters-South Sydney Rabbitohs NRL Round 25 match, marking the first official sporting event at the new stadium.

The Round 3 NRLW match was originally scheduled for Leichhardt Oval, however continued discussions with partners have allowed the change of venue.

“This is an exciting moment for the women’s game and rugby league,” NRL CEO Andrew Abdo said.

“Our remarkable female athletes will create Australian sporting history in the state-of-the-art new stadium.

“I’d like to thank our broadcast partners, the Sydney Roosters and Venues NSW for helping us make this is a reality.

“History will be made on Friday, September 2. The first ever match on Allianz Stadium – an NRLW fixture – followed by the clash between the two foundation clubs in the final round of the regular season.”
