September is here and if you're an NRL fan, that can only mean one thing: it's finals season. This year, Queensland footy fans are in for a treat as every single match-up in the battle for the Telstra Premiership trophy will be contested on home turf. From Cowboys country in Townsville to the stadiums throughout south-east Queensland, the best eight teams of the 2021 NRL season will be vying for the Provan-Summons Trophy all across the Sunshine State this year.

The first round of finals action kicks off on Friday, September 10 at Sunshine Coast Stadium when another chapter will be added to the fierce rivalry between the Melbourne Storm, this year's minor premiers and the defending title holders, and the Manly Sea Eagles. The next day there'll be back-to-back games at Townsville's Queensland Country Stadium. First up, the Sydney Roosters challenge the Gold Coast Titans in a sudden-death playoff. That evening, the Penrith Panthers will take on the South Sydney Rabbitohs. The finals action will continue over the next three weeks, when the league's best teams will fight for a spot in the Grand Final at Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium on Sunday, October 3.

Love your footy? There's nothing like seeing all the nail-biting action up close. For more information and to book your tickets to the finals, visit the website
