NRL Grand Final To Go Ahead At ANZ Stadium With 40,000 Fans In Attendance

The NRL Grand Final is staying in New South Wales.

After months of uncertainty regarding the location of the competition's climax, it appears NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has given the NRL the green light to host the final at ANZ Stadium.

And on top of that, she has confirmed that 40,000 fans will be allowed to attend.

Despite the coronavirus pandemic continuing to plague live sports events around the globe, the NRL has soldiered on.

From relocating entire teams to washing the footballs on the sidelines, NRL officials have done everything in their power to ensure that the competition can continue without any blips.

And while organisers deserve a heap of praise, the players and clubs themselves also need applauding for their continued efforts.

Whether it be the thousands of COVID-19 tests conducted during training sessions or the strict inter-state travel regulations, the clubs have been crucial in making sure that they are ready when called upon.
