- Head to Brisbane for NRL Double Header

April 27, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
The 2011 National Rugby League (NRL) Double Header returns to Brisbane at the end of next month, offering sports fans the chance to watch some of Australia's top teams in action.

This season's event will see local favourites the Brisbane Broncos take on Manly Warringah Sea Eagles, followed by a clash between the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and Gold Coast Titans.

It takes place on May 27th, just two days after the first match of the Harvey Norman State of Origin Series between Queensland and New South Wales.

Since it launched in 2009, the double-header concept has proved popular among players and fans alike, with a combined total of more than 92,000 fans heading to Suncorp Stadium for the previous two NRL contests.

In a statement, the venue's general manager Alan Graham explained: "What started as a novel idea has now become a regular fixture on the stadium event schedule and it's great that all key stakeholders have seen the positives of such a move."

Tickets for the double header went on sale at the start of April, with prices starting at AU$29.

NRL fanatics looking for Brisbane hotels can visit and choose from a wide and varied selection of cheap hotels near Suncorp Stadium.
