The ARLC is has confirmed Sydney's Accor Stadium as the venue for the 2022 NRL and NRLW Grand Finals.

The match is set to be played on Sunday 2 October. Normally at Accor Stadium in Sydney, it was hosted in Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium in 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The commission met on Wednesday to decide the venue, with conjecture over the future of the event in Sydney due to a stadium funding stoush with the NSW Government.

The QLD government meanwhile expressed interest to lure the lucrative event north of the border once more.

The ARLC held a Thursday afternoon press conference to confirm the NSW Government's last-ditch bid had won out and that the showpiece event would return to Accor Stadium in 2023.
