To be held on May 13, 2017, the match-ups will be the Melbourne Storm against the Gold Coast Titans, followed by the Manly Sea Eagles against the Brisbane Broncos.


Minister for Tourism and Major Events Kate Jones said securing back-to-back NRL Premiership Brisbane Doubleheaders was another coup for Queensland following the sold out event in May.


“This is a blockbuster weekend for Brisbane with the Titans and Broncos set to draw another sell-out crowd against two of the NRL’s flagship clubs at Suncorp Stadium,” Ms Jones said.


“The Brisbane Doubleheader provides an exciting opportunity for fans from across the country to enjoy a weekend in Brisbane and two blockbuster games in Australia’s best rugby league stadium.


“The doubleheader is another great addition to Tourism and Events Queensland’s world-class major events calendar which showcases our state to a global audience and draws visitors from around Australia and the world.”


Sales for the general public will open on Wednesday 14 December with early-bird prices.


A priority presale for Members of the four participating clubs will commence at 9 am on Friday 9 December.
