The NRL sponsorship is $20,000 with a game between West Tigers and the Canberra Raiders on May 9.


The Super Rugby has not previously been played in Tamworth, but NRL premiership games have for the past two seasons with each drawing more than 9,000 spectators to Scully Park.


A report tabled to the meeting said the estimated overall total economic impact of the NRL game is $2.14 million.
