The NRL has launched its own cardboard cut-out fan initiative called ‘Fan in the Stand‘ where fans can upload a photo of themselves, which will then be printed out and placed at their favourite team’s home stadium.

“Support your NRL team even at games that are behind closed doors,” the website reads. “The NRL are providing fans the opportunity to still take their seat within the stands and ‘watch’ their team play.”

This morning, Jonesy & Amanda spoke to Pete Jarmain, Head of Marketing for the NRL, about the new initiative, which will be trialled this weekend.

The weatherproof and recyclable cut-outs cost $22, and will mean that you’ll be able to attend your favourite games… in cardboard form!
