History of Magic Round

Magic Round is a concept unique to rugby league that began in the Super League in 2007 when all 12 teams played at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

In 2019, the NRL Magic Round weekend was introduced with the support of the Queensland Government, Tourism and Events Queensland and Brisbane Marketing.

The overall attendance for the 2019 Magic Round was 134,677 across four days and after being cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 global pandemic the weekend has grown bigger and better over the last three years, with almost 150,000 fans turning out over three days in 2023.
