    Bulldogs to move games to Bankwest Stadium and Perth

    https://www.nrl.com/news/2019/07/22/...ium-and-perth/

    "Canterbury CEO Andrew Hill has announced that the Bulldogs will move home games to Bankwest Stadium during the redevelopment of ANZ Stadium, while the club has also signed a three-year deal to play an annual match in Perth.

    With work on ANZ Stadium delayed until after next year’s State of Origin match in Sydney, the Bulldogs will seek to stage as many home games as possible before builders move in and have struck an agreement to play at Bankwest Stadium.

    The deal makes Canterbury the third NRL club to call the new Bankwest Stadium home, after Parramatta and Wests Tigers, who host four matches per season at the venue.

    As a result, the Bulldogs will continue to play 10 home matches in Sydney each season, including one at the club’s spiritual ground, Belmore Oval.

    In addition, Canterbury will again be the host club during next season’s Magic Round and have agreed to make Perth’s HBF Park their home ground for three games in the next three years.

    “The Western Australian Government has been passionate about bringing top-level rugby league to Perth and has sought to form a partnership with the Bulldogs in order to provide a platform to showcase our great club,” Hill said in a statement to Bulldogs fans.

    “With the enormous success of the State of Origin match in Perth last month, this is a fantastic opportunity for the Bulldogs to showcase themselves in a market that has embraced the game of rugby league and we thank the Western Australian Government for choosing the Bulldogs to be part of this opportunity moving forward.”

    South Sydney, the other NRL club which calls ANZ Stadium home, is yet to announce where they will play matches while the venue is being redeveloped."

    McGowan was born in Newcastle and then went to U of Q. Shouldn't he be trying to bring the Knights or Broncos to Perth?

    Broncos aren't going to sell games, they were listed as an away side for Magic Weekend and the double headers held in previous years.
