Dunedin's indoor stadium continues to attract a mix of sporting codes with the Warriors confirming they will play their final trial match for next season there in February.

The Warriors will play the Broncos on February 23, giving Dunedin its first taste of NRL action.

While the Warriors have played in Christchurch and on the West Coast, the Broncos have never played in the South Island.

"This is a terrific opportunity to not only play in the impressive Forsyth Barr Stadium but also to bring two NRL teams and some of the game's best players to Dunedin to create some history," said Warriors general manager football operations Dean Bell.

The clubs have a strong rivalry - the Broncos were the Warriors' first official opponents when the New Zealand club debuted in March 1995.

Dunedin's roofed stadium will also host a Wellington Phoenix A-League match against the Melbourne Heart on March 3.
