Everyone belongs in PARRAdise: Eels celebrate Cultural Showcase

The Parramatta Eels celebrated their 2024 Cultural Showcase at Granville Park ahead of Harmony Week and NRL Multicultural Round.

The event welcomed players, staff and their families to engage in the rich cultural diversity of both the Parramatta Eels and Western Sydney.

The showcase incorporated celebrations of several cultures which are core to the Eels' DNA, including Indigenous Australia, Asia and Pasifika.

Guests were invited to learn and participate in cultural dances and hymns, including the Isa Lei (Fiji), Siva Tau (Samoa), Haka (Māori), and Tau'olunga (Tonga).

Among the overwhelming attendance was a number of Eels players, including J'maine Hopgood, Joe Ofahengaue, Kennedy Cherrington, Morgan Harper and Rueben Cherrington.

The Eels will continue their celebrations of culture throughout Harmony Week and Multicultural Round, culminating in the NRL match at CommBank Stadium on Sunday.
