NRL footy fans will be able to score super-saver family passes to see Melbourne Storm take on the North Queensland Cowboys on Sunday 13 September at Sunshine Coast Stadium.
In another coup for the Sunshine Coast, it will be the first time the Cowboys play for premiership points locally in the Round 18 match and the second-last “home” game of the regular season for Storm.
Sunshine Coast Council Economic Portfolio Councillor Jason O’Pray said the game would be held in accordance with the approved COVID Safe Plan.
“We appreciate local footy fans supporting Melbourne Storm and tickets to the game will cater for everyone in the family to enjoy,” Cr O’Pray said.
“People can buy a family pass (four tickets) starting from $80 for Ground Admission on the North Hill, $100 for the family seated on the Southern Hill and a side-on view for $120 for the family of the Eastern Hill, and there’s a range of affordable tickets starting from $20 for children and $35 for adults.
“Storm has won their last four Sunshine Coast home games and we’re calling on the purple army to back their favourite NRL team on the road to the premiership.
“Footy commentators far and wide have all agreed the atmosphere at Sunshine Coast Stadium is electric.
“It really doesn’t get much better than this and never before have we seen the likes of so much first-class footy in such a short time right here on the Sunshine Coast.”
Storm CEO Dave Donaghy said the club appreciated the ongoing support from the Sunshine Coast community.
“Our NRL squad is now into its third month in their home away from home on the Coast and we’re now tracking towards the most exciting time of the year, finals footy,” Mr Donaghy said.
“We’ve had great feedback from those who have been to our home games at Sunshine Coast Stadium and look forward to the two big games to come – against the Cowboys and Tigers.”
