Important Information for Members of the Blue & Gold Army following the Club's pre-season trial victory over the Newcastle Knights and all the details ahead of the start of the 2018 season.
Maitland Preseason Trial Match: Newcastle Knights V Parramatta Eels.
The Parramatta Eels have come away with a convincing 26-6 victory over the Newcastle Knights at Maitland No.1 Sportsground in the Club’s pre-season on Saturday 24 February.
The home side took an early 6 point lead as Knights winger, Shaun Kenny-Dowell took a dive over the line despite some desperate defence from the Blue & Gold. However it didn’t take long for the boys to strike back with fullback Bevan French securing our first try. In front of a sold out crowd, the team continued their dominance with further tries from French, Hoffman, Auva’a, Jennings and Moses coupled with strong defence to keep the home side at only one try.
The boys are now looking towards Round 1 of NRL Premiership as they kick off their 2018 campaign against their western rivals, the Penrith Panthers at Panthers Stadium on Sunday 11th March, kick off at 4:10pm.
After the clash against Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles in Round 2, Eels Members can look forward to their first home game in a blockbuster clash against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at ANZ Stadium in Sydney’s Double Header in Round 3.

2018 Sydney Double Header Seating:
The Parramatta Eels are excited to be co-hosting the inaugural Sydney Double Header alongside the South Sydney Rabbitohs in Round 3 of the 2018 season. This is set to be an exciting day of Rugby League and our Club is thrilled to be a part of this blockbuster event which gives our players the chance to play in front of a massive crowd which will have a finals feel.
As this will be an Eels home game, Eels Members will receive access to this blockbuster event. Given that this game will be both a Parramatta Eels and South Sydney Rabbitohs home match, seating will need to accommodate both Eels and Souths Members.

2019 Members Seating Process
2018 Members should by now have received your Western Sydney Stadium Members Transition Guide at your home address.
This document outlines important information regarding our Member transition process to Western Sydney Stadium in Parramatta. Additionally, this document outlines the principles and policies that the Parramatta Eels National Rugby League Club intends to apply to the transition of Members and Life Members to Western Sydney Stadium (WSS). Our fundamental guiding principle has been to reward loyalty with a fair and equitable system of ranking each type of Membership.
Recognition of Loyalty
It is important that Members are rewarded for their loyalty. Therefore, the Club will recognise consecutive years of Membership as the primary factor in determining priority for seating at WSS.
This Member-centric and equitable approach will deliver the best outcome for the Club’s entire Membership base and will not favour any individual Member or group
It is important that Members are aware that the process to allocate seating in the new Western Sydney Stadium will be lengthy and detailed. Your patience as the Club works through this process is appreciated to ensure a smooth and equitable transition for all Parramatta Eels Members to our new home.
Your Parramatta Eels Membership Team are here to help you through the transition to Western Sydney Stadium. If you have any questions regarding the Transition Guide or have not received your guide by the end of February 2018, please contact us Monday to Friday 9.00am to 5.00pm via:
• Email: email@example.com
• Phone: 1300 BLUE GOLD (1300 258 346)
We have also set up our ‘Western Sydney Stadium Members Hub’ website to help guide you through the process. Visit membership.parraeels.com.au/WSSHub for the most up to date information for our Members.
What Happens Next?
At this stage, all Members need to do is familiarise themselves with the transition process. In late February an email will be sent to all Members notifying them that the WSS- Seating Group Form has opened. No need to rush, you will have until 31 March 2018 to complete your form.
