Blockbuster fortnight of footy to hit Sunshine Coast Stadium in 2018

NRL and Super Rugby fever will hit council’s Sunshine Coast Stadium in an exciting fortnight of action in February 2018.

Three high-profile pre-season games have been locked in – a Super Rugby pre-season clash between the Brumbies and Chiefs will kick off the schedule on February 14 followed by two NRL pre-season trials on consecutive Saturdays - Canterbury Bulldogs against Canberra Raiders (February 17) and Gold Coast Titans against New Zealand Warriors (February 24).

It’s the first time two NRL trials have been played in the one year on the Sunshine Coast, while the Brumbies v Chiefs clash is expected to feature both Wallabies and All Blacks representatives.

Tourism, Sport and Major Events Portfolio Councillor Jason O’Pray said the Sunshine Coast had quickly gained a reputation as a preferred destination to stage national sporting, recreational and entertainment events.

“Sunshine Coast footy fans are going be treated to a triple-header unlike any we have seen before when four NRL teams and two Super Rugby teams take to the field at our Sunshine Coast Stadium in February,” Cr O’Pray said.

“If you are an NRL fanatic you will be in your element with the Warriors, Titans, Bulldogs and Raiders all heading our way.

“We know the Warriors are a big draw card and it’s the first chance we’ve had to host the Titans, Bulldogs and Raiders in our backyard.

“Super Rugby punters don’t miss out because the Brumbies and Chiefs are going to be here in a full-scale hit out for their new season.

“It’s the type of game that our rugby lovers will be over the moon to see right here on the Coast.

“The six commuting teams have confirmed they are looking forward to heading to the Sunshine Coast and will hold fan meet-and-greet sessions along with paying a few special visits to local schools and communities.

“These high profile games will definitely boost the local economy and once again cement the Sunshine Coast Stadium as the premier venue for sporting and national events in the region.”

Tickets will go on sale in early December via www.sunshinecoaststadium.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au

Businesses and footy fans will need to be quick to snap up the attractive sponsorship opportunities and hospitality packages.
