Before the 2024 NRL Premiership season kicks off, all 17 clubs play trial matches to prepare. 

There will also be the annual Maori vs Indigenous All Stars games for both men and women, to be played this year at Queensland Country Bank Stadium in Townsville.

The NRL Pre-Season Challenge will feature 16 matches across two weekends in February, with each team playing two matches with the exception of the Penrith Panthers, who are heading over to England for the World Club Challenge.

The fixtures for the 2024 NRL pre-season can be found below. All matches will be broadcast on Fox League and Kayo Sports, while the two All Stars games will also be shown on Channel Nine.

Premiers Penrith will take on Super League winners Wigan Warriors in the World Club Challenge on Sunday, 25 February (AEDT) in the UK, looking to make amends for their shock loss in the 2023 edition to St Helens on home soil.

All times below are listed in AEDT (Sydney/Melbourne time).
