The Dyldam Parramatta Eels are taking on the Wests Tigers this Monday, April 21 for their Round 7 Easter Monday blockbuster match at ANZ Stadium!
The game will be #forthefarmers, with money being raised to support our NSW Farmers who are affected by drought.
Currently 56% of farmers in our state are currently receiving drought relief, with many not seeing any productive rainfall in 12 months. 85% of farmers are having to truck in feed with there not being enough crops to feed their livestock.
While our farmers are struggling financially, the drought is also taking an emotional toll, with poor mental health and high suicide rates having a devastating impact.
We will be bringing one lucky junior league team from Werris Creek in north-west NSW to the game to compete against the Rouse Hill Rhinos at half-time, and there will be many opportunities to make donations.
Getting to ANZ Stadium is easy with all public transport on buses, trains and ferries FREE to Sydney Olympic Park with a season Membership card or ticket - click here for more information on how to get to ANZ Stadium!
There will be plenty of action happening in the ANZ Stadium precinct too, with a visit from the Easter Bunny, our cheerleaders the Sweet Ps, face painting, jumping castles, and more!
We’re also very excited to have our charity partners Careflight fly their helicopter into ANZ Stadium bringing the match ball, so make sure you’re inside the stadium with plenty of time to see it!
We will also be giving away 10,000 Easter eggs to our crowd, and vouchers for 1000 free ice-creams!
