Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson said the Storm's decision to pursue the approvals to host these games at the stadium was a win-win for the NRL and our region.

"We know the Sunshine Coast is a destination of choice for major sporting teams and events and this announcement serves to reinforce that fact," Cr Jamieson said.

"We have a track record of selling out the stadium for top-level rugby league and have no doubt this will be repeated for these Melbourne Storm 'home' games, even though it will be a reduced number due to COVID-19 guidelines.

"Our stadium surface is in pristine condition and is NRL-ready.

"The match against the Titans on July 17 will also be the first opportunity to officially use our new LED Broadcast Lighting system installed earlier this season, which has made hosting these games possible."
