    Knights to host Eels in Maitland trial


    Thu 30th November, 12:30PM


    The nib Newcastle Knights will host the Parramatta Eels in a trial match at Maitland on Saturday February 24.

    It will be a huge day of football at the No.1 Sportsground, with five games scheduled including the Under 16s, 18s, 20s and Reserve Grade before the NRL match.

    “This will be the Club’s final trial match before the season proper kicks off and what a wonderful occasion it will be to play this trial at Maitland’s No.1 Sportsground,” Knights CEO Philip Gardner said.

    “With a host of new recruits joining the Club this season, this trial match will be a great opportunity for our fans to see those players in action for the very first time.”

    The match has been made possible due to a partnership between the two clubs and Maitland City Council.

    Maitland Mayor Loretta Baker said, “We’re excited to have both the Newcastle and Parramatta teams coming to Maitland in February.

    “Obviously the Knights are the Hunter’s very own team but we understand there are also a lot of Eels fans around the city so we’re hoping this match will draw a big local crowd.”

    Work began last year at Maitland’s No. 1 Sportsground, with the demolition of the old grandstand and the construction of a new multi-million dollar stand.

    Tickets will go on sale to Members from Friday, with the match going on sale to the public from Monday online or over the counter at the Maitland Visitor Information Centre.

    Tickets are $20 for grandstand seating, $10 for general admission and while children under 12 are free, a ticket will still need to be booked for each child along with the adult ticket.

    Members will receive further details on Friday, with information on how to purchase tickets.

    Knights sent an email or I read it somewhere, that tickets will go on sale to members today, and that an email would be sent from the club with details on how to purchase them.

    Edit> email is out now.

    Got my tickets. for those who are members they can book today. But, at no point did i have to enter any membership number etc. It appears the link sent in the email is open for anyone to buy tickets through.

    Most of us here are members but some probably aren't and may want to go. Grand stand is selling fast.

    Tickets paid for. Good little cash grab for the council.

    You would expect that when the decision was made to alter/change the teams, no u20 etc, that an alternative competition would have been decided and notified to public, paying fans.
    Nice to know what games you will see for tickets bought, especially if prices similar or rise.
    It all smacks of lack of professionalism.

    So 2 cup level teams in totally different comps I would expect. Were not going to get newcastle vs newcastle.

    Who would I cheer for. If one team scores a try I will be happy and sad at the same time.

    Come off it Frank. Turdburg and company have never been big on forward planning and consideration of the poor paying public. Their priority has been broadcasting rights and betting commissions.
