NRL 2024 marketing campaign

Ahead of the historic opening weekend in Las Vegas, the National Rugby League (NRL) has launched its 2024 Telstra Premiership campaign

The campaign is catering for two different markets, one for locals and one for the US, with the tagline “No pads, no helmets, no fear” being the main sell to the United States. 

Locally, the focus of the campaign is the countdown to the kick-off of the 2024 season.

The opening weekend in Las Vegas is the first time that premiership games have been played outside of Australia or New Zealand. The Manly Sea Eagles are set to take on the Rabbitohs while the Roosters will clash with the Broncos.
