"Residents have also come to expect a number of NRL matches played locally each season, and I am delighted to announce the Roosters, Manly and Souths will all have home games at the Stadium.
"We are proud to be able to deliver these professional sports for locals to enjoy in their own backyard, rather than having to travel to Sydney or Newcastle."
