Broncos and Warriors to play indoor trial match

Brisbane Broncos and New Zealand Warriors will play a historic indoor trial game in Dunedin on February 23rd.

The full-scale pre-season match will take place at the Forsyth Barr Stadium, which opened in August 2011 in time for last year’s Rugby World Cup.

It will be the first match between NRL teams ever staged in Dunedin, on New Zealand‘s South Island, and is expected to be televised live by Fox Sports.

Broncos’ general manager of Marketing and Commercial Operations said: “This game will be a great event not only for the Broncos and Warriors, but a great step forward for the game of rugby league in the South Island of New Zealand.

“We know we have thousands of fans across the Tasman and while those around Auckland get a chance to see us play every year, this will be an exciting opportunity for those on the South Island.

“It will be a special event at a very unique stadium. We can’t thank the Warriors and especially the management of Dunedin Venues enough – their willingness to work to make this event happen has been a real breath of fresh air.”
