NRL wants up to $10m compensation to keep 2021 grand final in Sydney© Allsport With ANZ Stadium unavailable, the NRL is demanding cash compensation to keep the 2021 grand final in Sydney.

The NRL grand final will leave Sydney in 2021 unless the NSW government compensates the game's governing body to the tune of up to $10 million for the reduced earnings that would result from staging a second decider at the SCG.

Delays in delivering Sydney’s new stadium network have raised the possibility of the grand final leaving the Harbour City for the first time. A six-month hold-up means a revamped ANZ Stadium won’t be ready to host the 2021 fixture, meaning the game could be on the move despite an NRL-NSW government agreement to keep it in Sydney until 2042.

The parties had agreed to hold the 2020 grand final at the SCG as a one-off, under the understanding ANZ would host the match the following year. However, the Homebush Bay precinct won’t be ready in time, leaving the 2021 grand final up for grabs.

The NRL grand final will divert from ANZ Stadium for the first time in 21 years next season, with the Sydney Cricket Ground to host the showpiece event in 2020 while the Olympic venue undergoes renovations. NRL wants up to $ 10 m compensation to keep 2021 grand final in Sydney .

The NRL is seeking up to million in compensation to keep the grand final in Sydney to offset the losses that will result from staging additional deciders at the Sydney Cricket Ground. The grand final could leave the Harbour City for the first time in history due to delays in delivering the new stadium

The Herald can reveal the NSW government will get the first right to retain the grand final, but will need to make up the difference in lost gate takings resulting from holding the game at the smaller venue for a second season. The SCG’s capacity is about 45,000 - about 35,000 less than ANZ - and the NRL doesn’t want to be left out of pocket two years in a row because it has less tickets to sell.

Officials at Rugby League Central are crunching the numbers to determine the exact difference that the NSW government will be asked to make up. It remains to be seen, having already spent $2.2 billion on stadium redevelopment, whether the NSW government is prepared to spend the further $8-$10 million amount it is estimated to keep the grand final in Sydney. Finances aside, there is also a feeling that the game-day experience at the SCG isn’t comparable with that of purpose-built rectangular stadiums such as Suncorp Stadium. NSW Sports Minister John Sidoti declined to comment.

Australian Rugby League Commission boss Peter Beattie has left open the possibility of moving the 2021 NRL grand final interstate due to delays to the upgrade of Sydney ’s ANZ Stadium. The NSW government and the NRL agreed last year to keep the grand final in Sydney until 2042 under the

The NRL privately insist the grand final is unlikely to leave Sydney , but hasn't completely ruled out taking it interstate. It had originally pledged to keep the grand final in Sydney for 25 years if the state's top office-bearers delivered on stadium rebuilds for Parramatta, Moore Park and Olympic Park.

The NRL hopes its offer is taken up and the grand final stays put given Premier Gladys Berejiklian came good on the controversial election promise to reinvigorate the state’s ageing stadium network. But if the government declines, the showpiece event will go to the highest bidder in an auction between Brisbane and Melbourne.

The NRL has shown a willingness to take its premium content on the road to grow the game. Perth’s Optus Stadium will host the second State of Origin clash on Sunday, just weeks after Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium was chosen as the venue for the inaugural Magic Round. Adelaide will host an Origin game next year, while the MCG has also been used as part of the location rotation of the interstate series.

ARL Commission chairman Peter Beattie indicated on Wednesday that Brisbane and Victoria were options “if we can’t reach a deal” with the NSW government.

Delays in beginning ANZ Stadium construction have also had knock-on for its main rugby league tenants. The Bulldogs, Tigers and Rabbitohs call the venue home and have been forced elsewhere from about round 15 of the 2020 season. The Rabbitohs will join the Tigers in playing games at Parramatta’s Bankwest Stadium while ANZ is unavailable.
