Excitement is building in the Eurobodalla for what is expected to be a spectacular game of NRL in the teams’ first preseason trial match of the year.
This is made evident by the fact that more than half of the tickets for the Canberra Raiders and Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs match in Moruya next month have already been sold.
More than 3000 tickets have been sold and are capped at 5000, so if you want to go you better get in fast.
Eurobodalla Mayor Mathew Hatcher said he had a feeling it would be a sell-out event and it was great to see so many spectators coming from out of town.
“More than half of the ticket sales are from people outside Eurobodalla, which is great for our area, but we don’t want locals to miss out,” he said.
“I can’t wait to see everyone enjoy the spectacle of professional football at one of our local grounds.”
The match will be at Ack Weyman Oval, at the Moruya Showground, which is currently closed in preparation for the event.
There will be two accessible seating sites and drop-off points, with Eurobodalla Shire Council’s mobility mats that are used on beaches to be rolled out to help people across the soft grass.
The 2023 NRL preseason trial match for the Canberra Raiders vs Canterbury Bulldogs will be on Sunday, 12 February at Ack Weyman Oval, Moruya with gates opening at 1:40 pm.
The under 21s Jersey Flegg game will start the day at 1:45 pm, while the main game is to start at 3:45 pm.
There will be bar services provided by local clubs, an oyster and champagne bar as well as pre- and mid-game entertainment.
