When will the 2024 NRL season be played? Probable dates for each round final, grand  final, games in Las Vegas Here’s how the 2024 NRL season is likely to play out.

   Can every game be played as GF? The 2023 season is receding into the rearview mirror, meaning the entire competition is now focused on the 2024 campaign. As it stands, the NRL has only confirmed the opening dates for the season in Las Vegas, but with this information and the date of the NRL Grand Final, we can now confidently predict the dates for the 2024 NRL season. . The draw takes place at the end of November and the only question of dates is really around the Origin period. The decline of Origin games has been much debated, and perhaps still is, but in the date list below we have marked the Origin games as they were played this year.

   It should be noted that the season starts on the same weekend as this year, although the 1st round will likely be split. This means that the USA Games will take place on the weekend of March 2nd and 3rd. That’s because teams returning from Las Vegas have been given extra recovery time, with the South Sydney Rabbitohs, Brisbane Broncos, Sydney Roosters and Manly Sea Eagles starting their season a week ahead of the other competitions.

   This means there will only be six games in Australia’s opening round of 7-10. in March, before the first full round – and the unlucky recipient of the 1st round – will play on the weekend of 14-17 in March. Las Vegas can be played on the same weekend as this year’s season opener only because the grand final weekend, which always precedes the Labor Day holiday, is moving back a week in 2024 to keep it in October. This means that the 27th round will be played from 5 to 8 September and the final will be played over the next three weekends before the Grand Final on Sunday 6 October.
