Melbourne Rebels 2024 Season Update

The Melbourne Rebels have entered voluntary administration and have handed their license to Rugby Australia.

Rugby Australia will assume responsibility for player and staff payments from this week to ensure the Melbourne Rebels take the field in the 2024 Super Rugby Pacific and Super Rugby Women’s competitions.

As Rugby Australia works with administrators, it will focus on a viable professional Rugby footprint in Melbourne that can be sustainable and commercially successful in the future.

Rugby Australia is committed to ensuring the Melbourne Rebels play in the 2024 Super Rugby competitions and, as such, have assumed responsibility for payment to players and staff to support their preparation for the new season.

As custodians of the game, Rugby Australia are determined on making responsible decisions for a sustainable and successful future – and will work with the Rebels and the relevant stakeholders to that end.

At this stage, your membership will remain unaffected by the transfer of the license. Your Memberships will continue to provide you access to Melbourne Rebels home matches for the 2024 Super Rugby Pacific and Super Rugby W season.

Super Round Melbourne 2024 will go ahead as planned and your access to this will remain unaffected.

Unless otherwise advised, yes your scheduled part payments will continue as normal.
