Brisbane stepped in to save the NRL's embarrassment after losing grand finalists Melbournedeclined to take part in the tournament which pits the best Australian sides against their counterparts from the English Super League.
The Broncos will face Warrington, while NRL champs Cronulla will meet English premiers Wigan.
The Broncos have strong ties to UK rugby league through Wayne Bennett, who is also the English national team coach.
"We have worked hard with the NRL to produce a series that will not only excite fans but one that also allows all clubs in the NRL to have a full pre-season," Super League general manager Mark Foster said.
"Cronulla and Brisbane have shown their commitment to doing this and the value that they place in taking part in the series and we are excited to welcome them to these shores in February."
