Eels Week at UNE
29 January - 3 February 2013
Pre Season Training Camp
You’re invited to the 2013 Parramatta Eels pre-season training camp at the University of New England in Armidale, 29 January – 3 February 2013.
UNE is gearing up to host the Eels Pre-season Training Camp for the second year, after it recently extended its major sponsorship of the team for 2013/14.
The week long camp builds on the relationship between education and sport, as well as offering the Eels the advantage of the first class training facilities that SportUNE has to offer.
Parramatta Eels coach, Ricky Stuart will be in Armidale during the week and there will be opportunities to him at a number of key public events. Knights Head Coach, Wayne Bennett, is unable to be in Armidale due to his commitment as coach of the NRL All Stars team, but the Newcastle Knights will be in good hands with assistant coach Rick Stone guiding them.
You will have the chance to watch the Eels in training, join the team for dinner and attend the trial match where the Parramatta Eels will take on the Newcastle Knights for the first time in 2013!
Thursday, 31 January
For the over 18’s there is an Evening with the Eels on the Thursday at the Armidale Ex-Services Club. For NRL fans it doesn’t get much better than this, putting you on the table with some of the biggest names in Rugby League.
The night kicks off at 6pm with Canapés and drinks and then moves on to a sit down meal where you will be seated with a Parramatta Eel’s player. Tickets are being sold online in tables of 10 at $65 per head ($650 per table). There are also limited individual tickets available and these can be purchased at SportUNE by phoning 02 6773 5186 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. In 2012 the dinner was a sell-out event so be sure to get in early!
