Stabilise, renovate and then grow': Abdo's NRL plan

Second Brisbane team could lead to an 18th NRL franchise, possibly in New Zealand, as the code moves from a survival phase caused by the coronavirus pandemic to one of short and long-term growth.

The plan for the NRL is to stabilise, renovate and then grow,” NRL CEO Andrew Abdo said.

Among the ideas being considered are:

Introducing a player transfer window and central contract registration system;
Overhauling the Rugby League Accredited Player Agent Scheme;
Using technology to improve the game-day experience for fans;
Creating a network of boutique stadiums across Sydney;
Increasing the number of rounds and teams in the NRLW;
Developing the Nines format;
Growing participation numbers, and;
Expanding the number of NRL teams.

An 18th team allows you to think about what we might want to do about expanding in New Zealand. Having two teams in New Zealand creates a tribalism and a new rivalry in New Zealand.

Second Brisbane team worth an extra $50m to rugby league
It’s only a matter of time before a second Brisbane side gets the green light, with research showing a new team would bring millions to the NRL.

With the 18th team for the extra game being the real selling point.

NRL NZ look favourites for the 18th team creating more games for SKY SPORTS in NZ

(Interesting few months leading into LATE JUNE)

Expansion for the nrl but not really for Rl. But a move, finally, in the right direction. Perth also needs a side.

Hmm, anyone able to post details? Can’t get past the paywall to see details of this report.



"One in every 24 Australians is now a member of an AFL club, a sign that the national reach of Australian football has never been greater," League CEO Gillon McLachlan said.
