We’ve put together a guide including all the important information you need to know regarding the 2021 NRL Grand Final, from attending the game to how to stream it, both here in Australia and around the world.

What Date and Time is the NRL Grand Final?

The 2021 NRL Grand Final will be played on Sunday, October 3, with the match kicking-off at 6:30pm local Brisbane time (AEST), which is 7:30pm Sydney/Melbourne time (AEDT), due to daylight savings starting in the early hours of that day, which Queensland doesn’t observe.

How many spectators can attend Suncorp Stadium?

There are currently no Covid restrictions in Queensland, meaning Suncorp Stadium can be filled to 100% of its 52,500 capacity. Despite being smaller than the traditional home of the Grand Final, Stadium Australia (82,500), the crowd is set to eclipse last year’s attendance, as capacity was capped at 50% in 2020.

How to watch the Grand Final

Channel 9 has exclusive rights to televise the NRL Grand Final in Australia and will broadcast the game nationally on 9 and 9HD. If you’re used to watching NRL ad-free on Foxtel, unfortunately you’re unable to watch the Grand Final on Fox League due to broadcast restrictions, so you’ll need to tune into channel 100 (or 209 for HD) to watch the game. Fox League will show a full replay of the game from 10:30pm.

If you usually stream NRL games live on Kayo Sports, unfortunately they are also unable to broadcast the Grand Final live due to the same restrictions. You can however stream the game in Australia live on 9Now – the streaming service of the Nine Network.

If you are outside Australia NZ or Pacific Islands, you can watch the match live on WatchNRL – the official international streaming service of the NRL.

What’s the Grand Final Entertainment?

The NRL is yet to announce the entertainment for this year’s Grand Final. Last year, it was headlined by Amy Shark, who was joined by instrumentalist and founding member of INXS, Andrew Farriss.
