FANS of Melbourne Storm are today expected to converge on Sunshine Coast Stadium, where they have started preparations for Thursday's Round 26 clash with the Brisbane Broncos.
The Storm will be looking to solidify their position in the NRL's top eight whilst dismantling the Broncos' minor premiership chances.
Strengthening their connection to the Sunshine Coast, the Storm will be here for a four-day training camp, utilising the facilities at Sunshine Coast Stadium.
As reported in the Daily, the Storm confirmed last week they will base their NYC Under-20s side on the Sunshine Coast here from 2016 as part of the NRL club's junior academy.
Rugby league fans are invited to show their support at an open Storm training sessions at the stadium today, starting at 5pm followed by a signing session from 6.15pm.
"This will be a great opportunity for all league lovers to see and meet one of the best NRL teams in Australia, including superstars such as Cameron Smith and Cooper Cronk, as they ramp up their training before the NRL finals series," Sunshine Coast Mayor Mark Jamieson said.
"Let's give them a big welcome to the Sunshine Coast."
As part of their stay, a special Melbourne Storm Luncheon will be held at Alex Surf Club on Tuesday, September 1.
Take advantage of this opportunity to get up close and meet coach Craig Bellamy, champion fullback Billy Slater and many other Storm players.
