WIN Stadium will play host to a major international rugby league double header later this year.
The Jillaroos will go up against the Kiwis in Wollongong on October 25 before the Kangaroos tackle New Zealand.
Wollongong last hosted an international in 2014, when Australia thrashed Samoa 44-18 in the Four Nations.
NRL Chief Executive Todd Greenberg says they're delighted to bring the pinnacle of rugby league back to Wollongong for the first time in five years.
The matches are expected to build on the region's already strong visitor numbers.
Meantime, St George Illawarra's first home game at the WEC is round six on April 20 against Manly.
