Queensland earned the right to host the defending champions following their draw with the Blues yesterday at North Dalton Park in Wollongong.

The result consolidated the two team's positions atop the Shield standings with the Bulls earning hosting rights by finishing on 33.17 points ahead of NSW on 31.51.

NSW are the defending Shield champions, claiming the title last year when COVID-19 forced a premature end to the season, while it will be Queensland's first Shield Final appearance since 2017-18 when the Bulls defeated Tasmania by nine wickets at Allan Border Field.

The match will commence next Thursday 15 April at Allan Border Field at 9.30am, and entry is free.

COVID-19 restrictions will be in place with fans reminded to observe appropriate social distancing, good hand hygiene and have masks as per recent Queensland Health Department advice.

Fans can also watch the match live on Foxtel, Kayo and cricket.com.au.

The Bulls will now keep their eyes firmly on the outcome of the Marsh One Day Cup clash between WA and Tasmania tomorrow with a bonus point by WA enough to tip the Bulls out of the one-day Final at Bankstown Oval on Sunday.
