Your Game Plan Round 16

Sydney Roosters kick off the resumption of the NRL season after the league-wide bye for State of Origin II with a Thursday night blockbuster against Melbourne Storm at McDonald Jones Stadium.

Despite the game being relocated to Newcastle as a necessary precaution, your Roosters are looking forward to playing in front of Members and supporters who live in the Newcastle region.

Whether you will be at the game or watching from home, here are all the details you need to prepare for the big game!


Tickets will go on sale at 4pm Monday, June 28 on Ticketmaster, so make sure you get in early to get the best possible seat!

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, McDonald Jones Stadium’s capacity has been significantly reduced, with only the western side of the venue open to spectators.

The Sydney Roosters would like to reiterate that it is imperative that those who wish to purchase a ticket adhere to the NSW State Government guidelines in relation to non-essential travel.

Ticket data will be analysed to ensure ticket holders are not from the Greater Sydney area (including the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour) are not included, and your ID may be checked throughout the event.

As per current Health Order and venue guidelines, all spectators MUST wear a mask. We strongly advise all spectators to abide by the NSW State Health Orders, as well as COVID-19 conditions of entry at McDonald Jones Stadium.


Members will receive emails with instructions on how to redeem tickets via Ticketmaster, with Member ticket redemption starting at 4pm Monday, June 28. Member cards WILL NOT work at McDonald Jones Stadium.

The Club would like to reiterate that all Members with match entitlements will have the opportunity to redeem a ticket for the match, however, it is imperative that all Members adhere to the NSW State Government guidelines in relation to non-essential travel.

If you need assistance, don't hesitate to contact our friendly Roosters Membership team as soon as possible.*

*Please note, the Membership team cannot guarantee a response to enquiries made after 4pm on Wednesday, June 30.
