2015 Tooheys Cup Grand Final Venue Announcement
Newcastle Rugby League are pleased to announce that Hunter Stadium has been confirmed as the venue for the 2015 Tooheys Cup Grand Final.
The decision to move away from No. 1 Sportsground was finalised at tonight’s Board of Directors meeting after lengthy negotiations with Hunter Venues and consultation with the District Clubs.
"Hunter Stadium is without doubt one of the premier sporting stadiums in Australia and the decision to host the pinnacle event of our season at this venue is extremely exciting," commented Newcastle Rugby League CEO Matt Harris.
The arrangement with Hunter Venues sees the utilisation of the lower tier of the western stand and its corporate facilities, both hill areas, and all player facilities. The two Grand Final teams will also benefit from the move with each club receiving $2.50 per ticket sold.
"While the League appreciated the need to continue to provide a revenue stream for the clubs the biggest influence on the Board’s decision was the positive impact the superior facilities of Hunter Stadium will have on the players, spectators, corporate and media," said Harris.
Newcastle Rugby League would like to thank Hunter Venues for their co-operation during the negotiations and our clubs for their support in reaching this decision.
The Tooheys Cup Grand Final will be held on Sunday 27 September 2015 with details on corporate packages and pre-sale tickets available in mid-July.
