South Sydney have signed a new agreement to make ANZ Stadium the NRL club's home ground for the next 10 years.

The club reportedly rejected a bid from their former home ground, the Sydney Football Stadium, to renew their deal with the Sydney Olympic Park venue, which has a capacity of more than 80,000.

The Rabbitohs will have a custom-designed locker room at the stadium as part of the new deal.

The agreement, which begins this season and runs until the end of 2017, means Souths will play a minimum of 10 NRL home games per season and all home finals at Homebush.

"The people at ANZ Stadium showed faith in us when others didn't and we're delighted to be continuing our partnership with ANZ Stadium to reward that loyalty," Souths director of football Shane Richardson said.

"This stadium deal will give us the financial clout to become the best team in the competition, and that's what it's all about.

"For the first time, our club has the best stadium deal in rugby league, if not in all of sport.

"I'm not just talking financially, but also in the benefits it provides to our members, our players, our coaches and our corporate partners."
