Eels strike agreement to play at Western Sydney Stadium

Dear Members:

I am writing to share the great news that we have reached an “agreement-in-principle” to play the future home games of the Parramatta Eels at the magnificent Western Sydney Stadium. This agreement-in-principle commences in 2019 and confirms the Parramatta Eels will be a key anchor tenant at Western Sydney Stadium. 

Following detailed negotiations with the stadium operator (VenuesLive), our Board and Management are satisfied that all issues have been addressed and the focus is now on ensuring Western Sydney Stadium and the Parramatta Leagues Club precinct will deliver the best game day experience for our Members, corporate partners and community stakeholders.

The Opening Game at Western Sydney Stadium is scheduled to be our home game in Round 6 of the 2019 NRL Premiership against the Wests Tigers on Easter Monday, 22 April 2019.

We are extremely pleased to have reached this stage and to confirm Western Sydney Stadium as our new home. This Stadium will provide our Members and commercial partners with an outstanding game day experience and will also contribute to the Club’s financial stability, allowing us to invest further in our Football teams.

On behalf of the Parramatta Eels Club Board and Management, I would like to thank VenuesLive for the constructive dialogue and helping us to give our Members and fans an outcome ahead of the 2019 NRL Draw being announced shortly.

Thank you all our Members for your continued support and loyalty - we can’t wait to welcome you into our new Blue & Gold fortress in 2019!

Best wishes.

Bernie Gurr
CEO
Parramatta Eels
