The Blue & Gold proudly wore our 2020 Indigenous Jersey in Round 12 of the NRL Telstra Premiership for their clash against the Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs.
Each of the players has signed their player jersey from the clash and Blue & Gold Members and fans now have the opportunity to bid on this memorabilia!
- The auction is now live and bids can be made here: https://eels.co/IndigenousJerseyBid
The auction is live until 3pm, Saturday 8 August, 2020.
The Jersey will come with a signed certificate of authenticity with proceeds going towards to the Parramatta Eels and its Football & Community Programs.
The #NRLIndigenous Round celebrates and recognises the role the Indigenous community plays in our game.
The NRL has adopted 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 jerseys were designed by Aboriginal artist Danielle Mate Sullivan, with input from Will Smith. The artwork is called ‘Connection’ and represents the connection to past and present.
