World Club Challenge confirmed for Melbourne

The World Club Challenge has been confirmed for February 16th at AAMI Park where the Melbourne Storm will host English giants Leeds.

It’s the third time the teams have clashed in the WCC.

“There’s no better venue or city to host a game that decides the world’s best rugby league team than AAMI Park and Melbourne – Australia’s sporting capital,” Storm CEO Dave Donaghy said.

“It will be fantastic to see rugby league take centre stage again at AAMI Park, having hosted record Storm crowds and the Rugby League World Cup in 2017.

“I know our Storm members and fans as well as the sports enthusiast will come out to support their Premiership winning team and to see some of the world’s best players take the field.

“Our football department is looking forward to the challenge of being back playing for the World Club Challenge trophy and testing themselves again the current Super League Premiers.”

The last time an English side travelled to Australia for the WCC was in 2014 when the Sydney Roosters defeated Wigan 36-14.
