Heading into the fourth year of a ground-breaking four-year partnership with the Northern Territory Government, the Eels are again planning a full twelve-month calendar of visits to #eelsterritory.
The Blue and Gold will host coaching and skills clinics through Alice Springs, Katherine and Darwin, as well as business networking events, community visits, educational programs, and an NRL Telstra Premiership Round 14 clash in Darwin during the season.
The Eels Round 14 clash (Saturday, 10 June 2017) will be against the North Queensland Cowboys and will attract a huge crowd to TIO Stadium, with some of the biggest names in the competition such as Johnathan Thurston and 2016 Dally M winner Jason Taumalolo to take part.
The Eels’ February trial match will be the Blue and Gold’s second hit out in the lead up to the 2017 season, coming off the back of the Downer NRL Auckland Nines on February 4 and 5 in Auckland, New Zealand.
The Eels will also clash with the Penrith Panthers at Pepper Stadium in the first ‘Battle of the West’ in 2017 for their final pre-season trial game on Saturday 18 February before hosting the much anticipated Blue & Gold Army Festival.
