The NRL Grand Final between western Sydney rivals Penrith and Parramatta is officially a sell-out.
More than 83,000 fans will pack into Accor Stadium after the last tickets were sold shortly after the final General Public allocation was released this morning.
“The Grand final teams represent the beating heart of rugby league. Clubs that represent modern day Australia. Confident, vibrant and growing communities. Heartland areas that have more kids picking up a football for the first time than ever before” NRL CEO Andrew Abdo said.
“The demand for tickets has been overwhelming. I would like to thank rugby league fans for their loyalty and support.
“There is much to look forward to this Sunday – a traditional rivalry that has never been played on the NRL Grand Final stage before and an NRLW Grand Final between two teams in just their second Premiership seasons. History will be made.
“We are delighted that Clubs will be celebrating community based live sites for fans.”
Gates will open at Accor Stadium at 1.00pm. Fans are encouraged to use public transport with free public transport (via integrated ticketing) for the event at Accor Stadium.
