Melbourne Storm will become only the third Australian team to stage the World Club Challenge when they host Leeds in February.
The match, between the NRL premiers and Super League champions to determine the world's best Rugby League team, will be played at AAMI Park on Friday, February 16 2018.
Brisbane and Sydney are the other Australian cities to have hosted the showcase event.
Melbourne Storm and Leeds Rhinos have already met in three World Club Challenge deciders; 2008, 2010 and 2013, with Leeds Rhinos victorious in 2008 but Melbourne Storm winners in 2010 and 2013.
The announcement was made at a press conference on the AAMI Park pitch attended by Rhinos chief executive Gary Hetherington.
