Eels confirm Premiers for opening home game

The Parramatta Eels have today confirmed the first Blue and Gold home game of 2017, against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at ANZ Stadium in Round Four of the NRL Telstra Premiership.

The Eels will go head to head with the 2016 Premiers at ANZ Stadium with kick off at 7:00 pm on Saturday 25 March, 2017.

The Round Four clash will be a feature in the Blue and Gold calendar, as the Eels celebrate their 70th Anniversary of the Club’s entry into the competition, with a big day of activities and celebrations planned to mark the occasion.

The clash against the Premiers will be the Club’s first home game at ANZ Stadium in 2017, and the first opportunity for the Blue and Gold Army to see the Eels in action at the new home stadium.

The Sharks are also celebrating their 50th Anniversary season in 2017.

The full 2017 NRL Telstra Premiership Draw will be announced tomorrow (11:15am, Thursday 24 November, 2017), with full details on the Eels season, including eleven (11) home games at ANZ Stadium and one (1) home game in Darwin.
