NRL considers locations for 2021 Grand Final
With the refurbishment of the ANZ Stadium set to see the venue unavailable for the next two years, NRL Chief Execuitve, Todd Greenberg expects the league to finalise the location for the 2021 Grand Final within the six weeks after extending the NSW Government's negotiation deadline.
Options in NSW include the SCG - which has a smaller capacity, and the news Sydney Football Stadium if completed on time, while both Brisbane and Perth could host the fixture.
As reported by NRL.com, the NRL is seeking a compensation deal from the NSW Government because of the delays and an agreement is yet to be reached.
Speaking to NRL.com, Greenberg said the NRL is still talking to the NSW Government and a deal is not far away.
Greenberg advised “we're getting closer. I said at the start of the finals series that we were a little frustrated. Since that time we’ve had some more dialogue with NSW Government.
"We're quietly working through that behind the scenes and we're hoping to wrap that up in a short space of time.
"In simple terms, we put a deadline between us and (NSW) Government to try to bring it to a conclusion. To be fair to NSW Government, they've had some changes, particularly in the ministry, so we're conscious of that.
"They've been great partners of us for a long period of time, so we've agreed with them to extend (the deadline) by a period of time."
