The NRL trial match will be the culmination of three days of activities the NRL has dubbed a 'festival of footy' for the Far South Coast. Along with community initiatives, tribute dinners and player visits, the festival will conclude at Bega Recreation Ground where the Penrith Panthers will take on the Parramatta Eels in their pre-season trial match followed by a free concert to be headlined by ARIA Award winning artist Amy Shark and rising country musician Brad Cox.
The Eels squad will be arriving in the region earlier in the week to visit and provide support to communities around the Sapphire Coast region.
