Adelaide keen to host NRL

Austadiums   |  Monday 9th December 2002
South Australia could host some National Rugby League (NRL) games next year, the state government said.

Sport Minister Michael Wright said NRL games could be lured to Adelaide following a deal for SA Rugby League to house itself at Hindmarsh Stadium.

SA Rugby League has entered a lease with the government for use of the stadium's field, office space and entertainment facilities, he said.

"The profile of rugby league can be expected to grow now that it has its own complex, which will also help the league attract National Rugby League games back to Adelaide, possibly as early as the 2003 season," Mr Wright said in a statement.

The lease takes effect from January 1 next year.

Adelaide had a team in the days of Super League but the club was eventually wound up when Super League and the Australian Rugby League settled their differences and formed the NRL.
