The ARL Commission has announced the six venues that will be used when NRL matches resume from May 28.

Bankwest Stadium, Campbelltown Stadium, Central Coast Stadium, Suncorp Stadium, Queensland Country Bank Stadium (Townsville) and AAMI Park will be used until round nine.

The Eels, Bulldogs, Rabbitohs, Sharks and Roosters will call Bankwest Stadium home for the near future, while the Dragons, Wests Tigers, Panthers and Raiders will play at Campbelltown Stadium.

The Knights, Warriors (who will be based in Gosford) and Sea Eagles will play out of Central Coast Stadium.

Three venues outside of NSW will also be used: Suncorp Stadium (Broncos and Titans), Queensland Country Bank Stadium (Cowboys) and AAMI Park (Storm).

Acting NRL CEO Andrew Abdo said the strategy was designed to ensure all venues provided the safest possible environment, based on the NRL's strict biosecurity protocols. 

"The competition will begin with a consolidated approach to venues. Each venue requires customised infrastructure to meet our strict biosecurity requirements. We've adopted a phased approach for venues should restrictions be eased in the future," Abdo said. 

"We've chosen three consolidated venues for clubs in and around Sydney to ensure there are no double headers at venues and in different parts of the region to meet the geographical challenges we face."

The official draw, to be released on Thursday, will allocate venues until round nine but will not allocate venues beyond that.
