NRL Grand Final 2020

Sunday October 25, 2020

The 2020 NRL Grand Final took place on October 25, 2020 between the Penrith Panthers and Melbourne Storm at ANZ Stadium, Sydney with the Storm winning 26 – 20 for their fourth official Premiership title. 

The NRL Grand Final is the premier Rugby League match held in Australia each year and pits the season’s best two teams against each other in the Premiership decider.

Traditionally taking place on the first Sunday in October, the NRL Premiership Grand Final was moved to the last Sunday of September for the 2018 NRL Premiership due to a decreased Regular Season of just 25 weeks. The 2019 NRL Grand Final again featured the final two premiership contenders going head-to-head on the first Sunday in October.

The Grand Final NRL game plays out in Sydney at ANZ Stadium, which has been the game’s home since 1999. To determine the two NRL Grand Final teams the NRL Finals play out over the three weeks leading up to the clash, which attracts more betting than any other game of the season.

As well as bragging rights the Grand Final winners are awarded the Provan-Summons Trophy, which is the NRL’s major prize and the design of which replicates the Winfield Cup trophy.

Every player in the winning NRL Grand Final team are also awarded Premiership Rings, while the standout player of the Premiership decider is awarded the Clive Churchill man-of-the-match medal named in honour of the former champion Australian fullback.

The NRL Grand Final draws some of the largest audiences of any sporting event in Australia with an average attendance of 80,000 and a record match attendance of 102,999 achieved in it’s opening year at ANZ Stadium in 1999.

NRL Grand Final Results

Since the inception of the NRL competition in its current format, the Melbourne Storm had won more Grand Finals than any other club. Of their six Premiership wins however only four officially remain on the record – 1999, 2012, 2017 and most recently 2020 – with their 2007 and 2009 Premierships stripped due to the club’s salary cap breaches.

The Sydney Roosters hold the equal official NRL Grand Final winning record since 1998 with four wins – 2002, 2013, 2018 and 2019.

Other multiple NRL Grand Final winners are the Brisbane Broncos (1998, 2000, 2006) and the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles (2008 and 2011).
