Grand Final to remain at Old Trafford until 2017

Super League and Manchester United are delighted to confirm that an agreement has been reached for the Super League Grand Final to continue to be played at the Theatre of Dreams for another four years.

The contract extension will see rugby league’s most prized trophy be contested at Super League’s spiritual home until at least 2017, which will mark the 20th anniversary of the Grand Final.

The agreement has been announced on the eve of the 2013 Super League Grand Final tomorrow, when Warrington face Wigan in an eagerly-anticipated title decider between two of the sport’s greatest rivals.

Super League Chief Executive Nigel Wood said: “The Super League Grand Final is a world class sporting event and I am delighted that we have reached agreement with Manchester United for it to remain in a world class venue.

“The first Super League Grand Final was played at Old Trafford in 1998 but the stadium has provided the backdrop for some fantastic rugby league memories for many decades.

“I am sure that will continue to be the case both this weekend and on November 30, when Old Trafford hosts the hotly-anticipated final of Rugby League World Cup 2013.”
