The NRL is getting closer to a finalised deal with Suncorps Stadium, with the NRL currently in discussions with the State Government over the possibility of the NRL playing the game at the venue in 2019.
The finalisation of the deal is expected to be completed before the end of the year.
The NRL has confirmed that it will not play the game in 2019, after initially being set to play the first round of the competition in the 2017 season.
NRL clubs have been in negotiations with the Government for some time, with a new deal due to be finalised this week.
“I can confirm that the NRL is currently in advanced discussions with SunCorps Stadium over a potential 2019 NRL match,” a spokesperson for the NRL told the ABC on Thursday.
In March, the NRL announced it would host a series of matches at the stadium, but it has yet to finalise a deal for a new round of games.
There is also an interest in playing the match in 2019 but the NRL has yet inked a new contract with the Stadium.
The deal with the City of Sydney is set to expire in 2023.
It is understood that the stadium is being considered for future games, with discussions on whether or not to play games in 2019 also underway.
One of the potential dates is 2019.
If the NRL were to go ahead with the 2019 games, it could have played the round-robin, a date the NRL had not played since 1999.
On Thursday, the Sydney Morning Herald reported that talks had been ongoing, with talks continuing for two years, but with the club likely to play in 2019 the NRL could have missed out on playing a home-and-away series against the Warriors.

The new deal with NRL clubs will come after the NRL played a home and away series against Queensland, Melbourne and Western Bulldogs in the 2018 season.
