“The Sydney Roosters are excited to be bringing Rugby League back to Western Australia and HBF Park for the next three seasons.

“The Roosters have a strong following in Western Australia and we are pleased to have the opportunity to expand the Sydney Roosters brand across the Country.

"It will also be a great opportunity for our Western Australian Members to watch our team play live in their home state and for those who are avid Sydney Roosters fans to join as Members.

“Following the success of State of Origin this year, the appetite for Rugby League in WA has never been stronger.  

HBF Park and the Sydney Roosters will host an NRL Telstra Premiership game for the next in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
