Game Day Guide: Bulldogs v Eels, Round 12

The Parramatta Eels head to ANZ Stadium on Sunday 2 August for their Round 12 clash against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.

After a 26-16 victory over the Wests Tigers last week, the Blue & Gold will be searching for their 10th win of the season up against a Bulldogs outfit that is coming off a 18-12 victory over the Newcastle Knights last week.

Here is what you need to know ahead of kick off!

NRL Indigenous Round

Round 12 of the NRL Telstra Premiership will be Indigenous Round, to celebrate and recognise the role the Indigenous community plays in our game.

The NRL’s 2020 Indigenous Round will adopt the theme "Pass Back. Move Forward." to highlight the importance of understanding and appreciating Indigenous history and culture in order to build a better future.

The focus of Round 12 will be encouraging fans to learn about the traditional custodians of the land where they live, and in support of this, all stadiums hosting Indigenous Round matches will include an acknowledgement to local First Nations people as part of their stadium name.

Round 12 crowd 

From 1 July, crowds of up to 10,000 (or as much as 25 percent of a venue) will be permitted in NSW and Queensland.

Crowds to the Round 12 clash will be limited however Eels Members have been given the opportunity to purchase tickets in the opposition fan section.

Eels Members who were interested in purchasing tickets were provided steps to purchase them last week via email by our Membership team. If you did not receive these steps and are interested in purchasing tickets to attend, please email our team at and a team member will contact you ASAP.
