This weekend, the Dyldam Parramatta Eels take on the Wests Tigers and we can't wait to see the Blue and Gold Army out in force!

Key Times:

Gates open: 12.40pm

Holden Cup kick off: 12.45pm

NRL kick off: 3.00pm

Last year, Over 50,000 Members and fans attended our Easter Monday game with the Wests Tigers defeating the Eels 21-18 in a thrilling contest, and the Blue and Gold will be looking to go one better and continue their winning streak on Monday with the backing of the Blue and Gold Army.

Both Head Coach Brad Arthur and the players know the impact a vocal Blue and Gold Army has during game day and are counting on Members and fans to head out to ANZ Stadium this Easter Monday to cheer on the Eels.

After Friday night's win over the 2014 Premiers, the South Sydney Rabbitohs, young gun John Folau said the support of an Eels crowd was indescribable. 

“The atmosphere was just awesome, I can’t explain it," Folau said.

"They just really backed us there, and just thanks to the crowd for coming out and supporting the boys."

 

Member Upgrades:

Yep, we have a little something up our sleeves for our Eels Members on Monday afternoon! Have you heard of our Just One More Member program?

Not only can you win a CAR by recruiting Just One More, you can also win a sweet Member Upgrade on Easter Monday! Every Member who recruits even ONE new Member with our J1M program could be upgraded to the Telstra Connected Lounge, along with a friend, where you can relax in comfort, enjoy full catering, and meet some of the Eels squad.

Get recruiting and you could be one of the lucky 5 Members who get upgraded!

 

Eels Member Entry and Benefits:
