If you are as thrilled as we are that sports are back on our television screens, you might be even more excited to know that you can also now actually catch a live game, with Queensland stadiums now allowing up to 10,000 people through their gates, and up to 25,000 from Friday 3 July. That’s right—footy nights are back on.
While watching from home is all well and good, there’s nothing like being right there with the action playing out live in front of you, and a boisterous crowd around yelling at the ref as loudly as you can. Of course, with fewer people than usual in the stands, it might be a different experience than usual, but we daresay having a few seats between you and the closest fellow fan might make it even better—now you won’t have to worry about anyone accidentally spilling your beer.
Suncorp Stadium is one of the venues welcoming back punters with open arms, with a heap of NRL and rugby games already on the schedule. This Thursday 2 July, Melbourne Storm is taking on the Sydney Roosters at 7.50pm, and you can still grab some last minute tickets to get up close and personal with everything you missed during lockdown—every pass, every tackle and every glorious try.
Even better, with so few people in the stadium, every seat available is on the lower level, so you won’t be squinting to see what’s going on on the field. So if you’re ready to throw on that footy jersey you’ve just been wearing around the house for months and get yourself to an action-packed game, get tickets here.
Want even more sport? Watch it 24/7 thanks to this new sports streaming service.
