Top 10 Reasons to Visit Toronto for the Rugby League

  • The Toronto Wolfpack – Witness the incredible match day experience and pioneering approach to Rugby League in Toronto. It will be a big eye opener for all fans!
  • The Torontonians – Possibly the nicest and friendliest people in the World! Try starting a conversation with anyone at a bar or simply ask for directions. You’ll be greatly surprised how happy people are to chat or help.
  • The Food – Toronto is very multicultural and has a huge choice of food. They excel in our British food but so much choice and generally great quality. We don’t include breakfast at hotels as huge choice around the whole city and an experience to try different places. Try St Lawrence market if you have time!
  • It’s Sports Galore – It’s a sport mad city – plenty of live sports and sports bars which will show everything and not just the usual US sports. Try a sports bar and you’ll appreciate the breadth of knowledge of the sports fans, while they may not fully understand RL they are willing to learn.
  • It’s a Sports Hub – Enjoy Baseball , Basketball , Ice Hockey , Canadian Football , Major League Soccer – If you have a chance try and experience one of these amazing matches live!
  • Immersive Parks and Green Spaces – Toronto is full of open spaces to enjoy. There are parks on almost every corner and lots of streets lined with big leafy trees that are absolutely beautiful in the spring and summer. If you have time for a ferry to the Islands its great and relaxing (and not far).
  • Get Behind the Scenes – Toronto is famously utilised as a Film and TV filming location – Suits, Incredible Hulk and Hairspray have all been filmed in the city. Who knows what they might be working on during your visit.
  • The Micro-Breweries – It’s not all Bud! Huge amount of Micro-Breweries feed many of the downtown pubs. Canadians are knowledgeable and willing to share their amazing food and beer!
  • Make the most of your 2020! – There’s so much to enjoy from Rugby League, Super City, The Downtown, , Arts, Films, Beer, Wine, Food, Glorious Weather and lovely people!

The NRL Grand Final is finally coming!

NRL Grand Final 2020

Glory Days Australia have been offering packages to the NRL Grand Final for over 10 years and we are looking at the possibility of running a bespoke group tour from the UK for the 2020 Grand Final Week. This trip shall be limited to 40 people max due to the exclusive nature of the event.

The build up is fantastic and the event magnificent – we will provide access to all the events throughout the week as well as the Grand Final itself.

The dates are not confirmed but a rough itinerary would be (based on 2019 match dates and dates for 2020 to be confirmed) as follows:

Tues 22 September – Flight Manchester-Sydney
Thurs 24 September – Arrival Sydney
Fri 25 September – Preliminary Final (what we call semi-final) – if Sydney ticket included otherwise Leagues club to watch
Sat 26 September – Preliminary Final (what we call semi-final) – if Sydney ticket included otherwise Leagues club to watch
Sunday 27 September – Saturday 3 October – All the build up in Grand Final Week
Sunday 4 October – Grand Final Day
Monday 5 October – Flight Sydney-Manchester
Tuesday 6 October – Home

This will be a Rugby League fanatics dream!

We’ll include Rugby League experiences throughout as well as general tourism experiences.
The Grand Final match itself will be at the Sydney Cricket Ground, bringing years of rich history to the games while the ANZ Stadium has a facelift.

As usual we will add exciting excursions, attractions and would happily extend stays and add additional locations if preferred. We are building this tour

The Preliminary Finals will only have venues a couple of weeks before – if Queensland (Cowboys/Broncos), Victoria (Storm) or New Zealand (Warriors) then we’ll look at optional excursions but watching this in a Sydney Leagues Club or Sports Bar will have a great atmosphere.

The Grand Final week is always a superb spectacle; soak in the tangible atmosphere and be part of the action.
