Sea Eagles happily at 'home' at Central Coast Stadium

The beautiful boutique Central Coast Stadium will feel almost like ‘home’ for the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles when the NRL Telstra Premiership resumes on May 28.

The ARL Commission today announced Central Coast Stadium, Bankwest Stadium, Campbelltown Stadium, Suncorp Stadium, QCB Stadium and AAMI Park, as the venues for rounds 3-9 in phase 1 of the 2020 NRL Season resumption.

The venues were selected on a range of factors including those best equipped to meet the NRL’s strict biosecurity protocols which have been formulated to keep players, staff and the general community healthy. Other factors included geographic location, rectangular rather than oval stadiums and commercial considerations.

With Manly unable to play games at Lottoland during this initial period, the Sea Eagles happily chose to call Central Coast Stadium home. And why not. The Sea Eagles have won an impressive 12 of their 13 home matches played at Central Coast Stadium since 2007.

The last time Manly played a premiership home match at Central Coast Stadium was in 2015 with the Sea Eagles recording a thumping 44-14 win over the Brisbane Broncos.

Sea Eagles captain Daly Cherry-Evans said he was excited to be playing at Gosford.

Central Coast Stadium has always been a great venue to play at. It is a great surface and we have a good record of success at this ground, so we will feel very comfortable there

Daly Cherry-Evans

“Naturally, we would have loved to play at Lottoland but being at Gosford is the next best option for us. The only difference this time around is we won’t have our great Members at the ground.

"We’ve always had a huge following when we play on the Central Coast and we look forward to hosting them all again soon.”
