The NRL has officially confirmed the New Zealand Warriors will be a part of the Las Vegas promotion next year.

They will join the Penrith Panthers, Cronulla Sutherland Sharks and Canberra Raiders in the second edition of the season-opening.

In an expanded programme, there’ll also be a Super League encounter pitting the Wigan

Warriors against the Warrington Wolves plus a women’s international between the

Australian Jillaroos and the England Lionesses.


The matches will be played on Saturday, 1 1March, nine days before the 30th

anniversary of the Warriors’ debut in the Australian competition.


The Warriors will be the away team taking on the Raiders while the Panthers face the Sharks.

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be involved in an event that will provide our club, members

and fans with an unbelievable experience,” said One New Zealand Warriors CEO Cameron George.

“It was amazing seeing the impact this year’s event had as the NRL took premiership

games outside Australia and New Zealand for the first time.

“We’re so proud to be New Zealand’s only club in the competition and, as such, we will

be doing all we can to add another dimension to the occasion next year.

“Our members and fans are the best in the game. They’ve been packing out our home

games in record numbers, they follow us around the country and support us brilliantly in

our away games.

“Now they will have the chance to climb on board to see their team break new ground by

playing in the United States for the first time.”

“This will be another tremendous opportunity for rugby league and also for us specifically

to promote ourselves to the American market,” he said.

“We’re confident we can attract a huge crowd of ex-patriate Kiwis in the United States as

well as having a big contingent of travelling fans with us.”

Rugby League in Las Vegas 2025 will kick off on Wednesday, February 26 with a packed

programme of events leading up to a game day providing eight teams and four games

with just one ticket.
