The Warriors will play a game at Eden Park again next year and intend taking one of their official NRL home games on the road, either within New Zealand or possibly in Australia.

Warriors chief executive Wayne Scurrah said 10 regular season home games would be played at Mt Smart Stadium with another confirmed for Eden Park early in the campaign.

He said the venue for the 12th regular season game would be announced soon.

"The NRL has indicated it wants to see a number of clubs' games played away from traditional home grounds next year," he said.

"With this in mind, we're working with the NRL in assessing a number of options to play our 12th match at a venue either elsewhere in New Zealand or in Australia.

"A survey of our members earlier this year has also provided really positive support for us hosting a game outside Auckland."

The Warriors have played two rpevious matches at Eden Park, drawing big crowds but losing both games. The club also announced earlier this week they will play the Brisbane Broncos in a pre-season match in Dunedin in February.
