Friday night marks the Dyldam Parramatta Eels' "Salute to Service" Round, as we take on the South Sydney Rabbitohs at Parramatta's Pirtek Stadium.
Our #salutetoservice Round is an opportunity to acknowledge and thank our defence forces and local frontline services for the work they do for our country and community; we look forward to hosting representatives at the game, and seeing them form a guard of honour before kick off at the game.
Gates Open: 5.00pm
Holden Cup Kick Off: 5.20pm
NRL Kick Off: 7.35pm
Remember, every ticket-holder from this Friday night's Round 4 game AND every 2015 Parramatta Eels Member is entitled to a free day at the races thanks to our game day sponsor, the Australian Turf Club!
Present your ticket or Membership card at the gates at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday, March 28, to receive free entry to Western Sydney Legends day, the final day of racing of the Golden Slipper Carnival.
For Members who have not yet received their Membership card, there will be Membership Services team members located at Gates A/B and G/H from 4.20pm to help you on the night.
Once again, this week, we'll have Friday night fireworks, free game day clappers given away at the gates, and a special guest raising the Blue and Gold Army flag pre-game!
Stop by “Tryline City” on the Eastern side of the Stadium to visit our Membership and merchandise tents, try out the kids’ rides and jumping castles, visit our face painters or try some delicious Nong Shim snacks.
To mark #salutetoservice, make sure you also take the kids to check out some of the Service Vehicles in the precinct and grab a photo. There will be the police vehicles, fire engines and light-weight tanks - so make sure you come and say hello!
If you're in the mood for a selfie, head to the Eels Community tent at TryLine City in the precinct and take a pic in our selfie frame for your chance to win a signed jersey, and to meet some of our Eels squad Members in person:
5.30pm – 6pm: Semi Radradra
6pm – 6.30pm: Vai Toutai
6.30pm – 7pm: Pauli Pauli
7pm – 7.30pm: Junior Paulo
Getting to the Game:
The Eels encourage all Members and fans to take public transport to the game as parking is not available at Pirtek Stadium.
Parramatta train station is the nearest train station to the ground, and is only a short walk or shuttle bus ride away. Parramatta Bus interchange is located on Argyle Street opposite the Parramatta Train Station.
A free shuttle bus service runs from Argyle Street near Parramatta Station to Pirtek Stadium & returns to the station after the game, and a free shuttle bus also runs from Col Sutton Reserve in Baulkham Hills to Pirtek Stadium both pre & post game. This service will run at 15-20 minute intervals in the lead up to the game & again for 1 hour after the game on NRL Game Day.
For more information on these services, please call the football club office on 8843 0300.
Please remember that due to upgrades being carried out at Pirtek Stadium, there will be changes to the entry and exit procedures and to some services at the ground. The area surrounding Gate F will be partly fenced off.
All patrons with corporate tickets will be able to entre via Gate F, but there will also be fencing around the gate with staff directing you to Gates G/H, and the area directly outside the sheds and tunnel will not be accessible post-match.
The box office at Gate F will also be inaccessible, so ticket collection will be located at Gates A/B on the Eastern side and G/H on the Western side.
