Metro Trains chief executive officer Raymond O’Flaherty and Storm chief executive officer Justin Rodski announced the partnership at Richmond Station, revealing exciting opportunities for fans to be involved in the new partnership.
Pop-up activations at train stations across the Metro Train network will give people the chance to win free double passes to matches, along with a signed jersey and other free giveaways before they make their daily commute.
Rodski said a recent member survey showed many were still yet to attend games this season.
“It has been great to see so many Storm members and fans at AAMI Park in the first six home matches this season,” he said.
“We know a large number of our members and fans use public transport to get to AAMI Park to watch Storm play, but we also know that there are many of our members who are still hesitant to come to matches post-COVID.
Victorian Government Minister for Public Transport, Ben Carroll, said everyone heading to the NRL was encouraged to use public transport.
“With more services than ever before, it’s the easiest option to make sure you don’t miss any of the action,” he said.
