In a coup for the city of Maitland, some of the National Rugby League’s finest will face off against each other at a trial match which will launch the use of Maitland No. 1 Sportsground on Saturday 24 February 2018.

The Newcastle Knights and Parramatta Eels will battle it out in front of local footy fans thanks to a partnership between the Hunter club, Parramatta Eels and Maitland City Council.

The gates will open at 10.30am and there will be five games on the day including matches between under 16, under 18, under 20, reserve grade and first grade teams.

Grandstand tickets are $20.00 for all ages and General Admission tickets are $10.00 for adults and youth. Whilst children under 12 are free, a ticket will still need to be booked for each child along with the adult ticket.
