UPDATE: Storm x Lightning On The Sunny Coast [Cancelled]
UPDATE: Due to current border restrictions between Victoria and Queensland, this event has unfortunately been cancelled.
Storm x Lightning will hopefully be able to hold a similar event on the Sunshine Coast, border restrictions permitting, later in the year.
Two teams, one Club will be reunited next week when Melbourne Storm joins Lightning on the Sunshine Coast for a special community event.
Storm x Lightning on the Sunny Coast will be held Friday 19 February from 3pm at Sunshine Coast Stadium.
The community event will give fans the opportunity to meet some of their favourite Lightning players including Laura Scherian, Maddy McAuliffe, Mahalia Cassidy and Peace Proscovia.
There will also be the opportunity to watch Storm in an open training session ahead of their practice match the following evening, and celebrate with the return of the 2020 NRL Premiership Trophy.
Supported by Sunshine Coast Council, the event will also see Q&As with your favourite players and coaches, free giveaways and the chance to win three major lucky door prizes.
Lightning and Storm Memberships will also be on sale so you can sign up ahead of Season 2021, or support both teams with the Lightning x Storm dual membership.
The Storm X Lightning event will begin at 3pm and run through to 5.30pm with COVID-19 protocols in place.
Entry to the event is limited to the first 1500 people.
Fans can also stay on to watch the Sunshine Coast Falcons’ captains run from 6pm.
