City of
Manchester Stadium favourite for Tri-Series final

The Tri-Nations Final will be taken to a stadium of decent size and stature in the British Sporting World, with the RFL believed to be close to signing a deal with the City of Manchester Stadium trust.

The City of Manchester Stadium was created for the 2002 Commonwealth Games, and is now home of the Manchester City football club. The stadium can hold up to 48,000 people and is in the perfect location to capitalise on the ?heartland? supporters in the North of England.

In other Tri-Series stadium news, the RFL are looking a Fullham FC?s 22,000 seater Craven Cottage for the second Australia V New Zealand clash in the tournament (the first clash to be held in New Zealand as the official tournament opener).
