The first release of tickets for the NRL grand final at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday, October 3 has sold out as momentum builds towards the historic decider in Brisbane.
With four teams remaining in the hunt for the 2021 premiership, a huge weekend of preliminary finals will be followed by a second release on Monday of supporter bays for teams who make the grand final.
Club members of the grand final sides will be able to access the tickets at 10am on September 27 and any remaining seats will go on sale to the general public at 4pm.
“I want to thank Queenslanders for the way in which they’ve supported our game,’’ NRL CEO Andrew Abdo said.
“It’s no surprise to see our first release of tickets sell so quickly. We’ve deliberately held back a second release to ensure fans of the two teams who make the grand final have an opportunity to watch their team live.
“Next Sunday will be an historic day for our game and for Queensland. It’ll also be a fitting celebration of the most unique season in our history.”
Tickets to the two preliminary finals at Suncorp Stadium between the Rabbitohs and Sea Eagles on Friday night and the Storm and Panthers on Saturday afternoon are currently on sale at NRL Tickets.
The Rabbitohs are looking to make their first decider since 2014 and send coach Wayne Bennett and favourite son Adam Reynolds out with a premiership while the Sea Eagles are chasing their first title since 2011.
The Storm and Panthers met in last year's decider and for one of those sides the dream will end this weekend in Brisbane while the other marches on to go in search of the ultimate prize.
Craig Bellamy's men are looking for back-to-back titles and a third premiership in five years while Ivan Cleary's Panthers are chasing their first title since 2003.
