Tickets are now on-sale to the general public for the biggest rugby league festival in the world – the 2022 NRL Magic Round.
The NRL today launched Magic Round in Brisbane with former Manly prop Brenton Lawrence representing the Sea Eagles in an ambassador role for the club.
Now living in Queensland, the respected Lawrence played 85 first grade games for the Sea Eagles after making his club debut in 2013.
The festival of footy, combined with music and plenty of fun, will see Magic Round held at Suncorp Stadium in Queensland on the weekend of May 13-15.
The Sea Eagles will play the Brisbane Broncos at 8pm on Friday, May 13, in the prime free-to-air television slot.
Magic Round 3-day passes start from $99* for adults, with 3-day supporter bay passes starting from $145*
Reserved seating is available for all eight games across the 3-days of the Magic weekend, giving league fans the chance to see every game of a premiership round in one weekend.
“Magic Round is a unique and fun event for players and fans. It has grown to become a highlight for both locals and many travelling fans from around the country,” NRL CEO Andrew Abdo said.
“It’s an opportunity for fans to see all 16 Clubs compete at one of the best stadiums in the world. Magic Round is not just about the football, with interactive experiences around the stadium precinct for fans.
“Last year more than 130,000 fans attended and with borders open across the country we are hoping for even more to attend this year.”

Since the inception of Magic Round in 2019, the Sea Eagles have played Brisbane twice at Suncorp Stadium. Previously to this, the Sea Eagles played several home games at Suncorp Stadium against the Broncos.
Brisbane won the first Magic Round match 26-10 in 2019 with the fixture cancelled in 2020 due to the covid pandemic.
Last year, the Sea Eagles ran riot against the Broncos, winning 50-6 with full-back Tom Trbojevic and winger Jason Saab scoring two tries each. Reuben Garrick had a Magic Round to remember, kicking 8 goals from 8 attempts.
The Sea Eagles have always had a huge following in Queensland with many Manly supporters attending Suncorp Stadium, or ‘Brookvale North’ as it affectionately known to many of the maroon and white faithful.
The support was again evident to see last year when plenty of passionate Manly fans attended games throughout Queensland when the Telstra Premiership was relocated there.
