Streaming service Kayo Sports and the Dolphins, the newest club in the National Rugby League (NRL) competition, have announced a partnership that will see the club rename its home base from Moreton Daily Stadium to Kayo Stadium.
Fox League host Yvonne Sampson was joined by Dolphins Chief Executive Officer Terry Reader, Dolphins coach Wayne Bennett and Dolphins players Tom Gilbert and Mark Nicholls to announce the new four-year agreement.
The Queensland-based team will enter the National Rugby League competition next season.
Executive Director of Kayo Sports, Cate Hefele said: “The arrival of the Dolphins in the NRL means more live games, more action, and greater competition. The club has a large and passionate fan base. We can’t wait to welcome Dolphins fans, and all rugby league fans, to Kayo Stadium to watch their team in action through this exciting partnership. And for fans watching at home, Kayo Sports will continue to be the only place to see every game of every round live and ad-break free.”
Chief Executive Officer of The Dolphins Terry Reader said: “Today we announced that Kayo Sports will be the naming rights partner of our stadium here, our spiritual home here in Redcliffe where we will play three of our NRL games not to mention our main trial here in, only about six weeks’ time.
‘’Another great example of why Brisbane needs a second team, another big partner behind the club and not to mention, wonderful turn out here to watch the first official open training session.” “Kayo Stadium is Brisbane’s best boutique stadium and has hosted the NRLW Grand Final as well as being a base for Brisbane Roar’s A-League matches.
“Kayo Sports is the ultimate destination for fans and we believe Kayo Stadium will provide the same level of excitement for our members and supporters.” Dolphins Coach Wayne Bennett said: “It’s great to have Kayo onboard, they’ve made a huge impact on our sport and their product and what they produce and how they produce it, so it’s wonderful to be tied up with such a great brand.”
Kayo Sports will feature every game of every NRL round in 2023 live and ad-break free during play.
The Dolphins will play their first home game at the newly branded Kayo Stadium when they take on the Titans for a trial match on February 19.
