The Eels are one of six NRL clubs to have aligned themselves with elite touch football teams, with both a women’s and men’s team playing in the tournament with the two 30-minute games played ahead of the main NRL event between Rounds 11 and 20. The games will be broadcast nationally through a mix of live and delayed broadcasts.
Six NRL Clubs will have teams; three from New South Wales, and three from Queensland: the Parramatta Eels, Wests Tigers, Newcastle Knights, Gold Coast Titans, Brisbane Broncos and North Queensland Cowboys.
The inaugural Premiership will consist of six rounds plus a final. Queensland teams and NSW teams will compete against each other in separate pools, with the winners from each pool progressing to the Premiership Final.
