The Parramatta Eels are proud to launch its 70th Anniversary logo for its 2017 NRL Season. The new logo commemorates the 70th anniversary of the Club’s entry into what was then the premier NSWRL competition in 1947.
The logo design incorporates a combination of the Club’s traditional logo from its early history through to the introduction of the famous Eel design that is central to our clubs brand identity.
Interim Eels CEO Bevan Paul said that the club takes great pride in its history and in those passionate people who lobbied hard for Parramatta to have a team in the premier rugby league competition over 70 years ago.
"Our 70th anniversary is a major milestone and one we celebrate with all those who have been a part of our club during this time," he said.
“The anniversary reminds us how important members are in our history. Whether it’s the early members in 1947 that helped bring the club to life right through to the Eels members who supported the team with such passion and loyalty last season.
“As we move towards 2017, we have a lot to be proud of as a club and I am sure celebrating our 70th anniversary will be major positive of the new season.”
The new 70th logo will appear on our 2017 jerseys, training gear and merchandise with the Club holding special events throughout 2017 to celebrate the anniversary.
