2018 Sydney Double Header
We are excited to announce that in 2018 the Parramatta Eels will co-host the inaugural Sydney Double Header with the South Sydney Rabbitohs in Round 3. This will be a fantastic day of Rugby League as the South Sydney Rabbitohs take on the Manly Sea Eagles at 5pm, followed by our mighty Parramatta Eels playing the 2016 Premiers, the Cronulla Sharks.

In 2015, the Parramatta Eels introduced a first in the NRL: the Eels Member Council.
This Member advisory group meets regularly during the year to discuss a wide range of topics put forward by the Club, with a group of Members taking part to give their feedback and opinions on all Member and fan experience related elements of the Parramatta National Rugby League Club.
We received hundreds of applications to be part of the Eels Member Council in both 2015 & 2016. The current 20 Member Councillors selected to form the 2017 Eels Member Council included Members who have been part of the club for between 1 and 20 years, and from Membership categories including the Captains Club, Reserved Seats, General Admission, Interstate Membership and the Blue and Gold Army Non-Ticketed Membership.
At the end of this year (2017), seven new Member Councillors will be introduced and applications are now open!

Further to this, Councillors need to be able to commit to Council Meetings every second month, held on a Wednesday evening at Parramatta Leagues Club. Councillors must continue to hold a financial Parramatta Eels Membership over the duration of their tenure on Member Council.
