Manly Warringah Sea Eagles will host several blockbuster home games at 4 Pines Park next season following the release today of the 2023 NRL Telstra Premiership draw.
The Sea Eagles will play 10 home games at 4 Pines Park in what is shaping up to be a very exciting season under new Coach Anthony Seibold.
Manly open their season against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at 4 Pines Park on Saturday, March 4, at 3pm.

Arch rivals Parramatta Eels and the Melbourne Storm will again receive a warm welcome to 4 Pines Park for some epic clashes, while a slice of history will be created on Friday, June 9, when Manly tackle new premiership club, the Dolphins, for the first time.
One of Manly’s favourite sons, Kieran Foran, will also make a return to 4 Pines Park when he arrives in town with the Gold Coast Titans in late April to take on his former team-mates of the past two years.

It’s become an annual tradition….the Sea Eagles versus the Brisbane Broncos in a home game at Suncorp Stadium on a Friday night in Magic Round.
The second match of a double header, it will be Manly’s only appearance in Queensland next year.
We look forward to seeing the huge ‘Brookvale North’ army out in droves again for Magic Round.
Road less travelled
The first two months of the premiership sees Manly play all but one match in Sydney with the only road trip being the home game to Mudgee to play the Newcastle Knights.
Furthermore, the Sea Eagles travel just 8,524km all season. Nice!
The Sea Eagles jet off just three times in 2023 with trips to Brisbane, Melbourne and Auckland.
Following the Magic Round game in Brisbane, Manly tackle fierce rivals Melbourne Storm in a Saturday night showdown at AAMI Park on June 24.
The Sea Eagles then make their first trip to Auckland since 2019 when they take on the Warriors at Mt Smart Stadium in a Friday night encounter.
Pack those yummy eggs for your road trip to the foot of the mountains on Saturday, April 8, when the Sea Eagles tackle premiers Penrith Panthers at 5.30pm.
One of the great highlights of the NRL season is ANZAC Round. In 2023, the Sea Eagles travel to Campbelltown Sports Stadium to tackle the Wests Tigers on Sunday, April 23. It will be another classic grudge match between the ‘Fibros and the Silvertails’.
Manly will receive valuable free-to-air-exposure for their major corporate partners with 12 games being shown on Channel Nine. All Sea Eagles matches will again be shown live on Fox League.
