NRL stars return to the Territory in 2017
The NRL will return to the Northern Territory in 2017 with the Parramatta Eels to play two matches at their home-away-from-home.

The Territory Eels will play a blockbuster match against 2015 premiers, the North Queensland Cowboys in Darwin on Saturday 10 June 2017.

The Round 14 clash for premiership points is expected to attract a huge crowd to TIO Stadium with the Cowboys boasting some of the biggest names in the NRL such as Johnathan Thurston and last years’ Dally M winner, Jason Taumalolo.

Alice Springs will host a pre-season clash between the Eels and the Gold Coast Titans on Saturday 11 February 2017 with former Eels’ star Jarryd Hayne set to line up against his former club.

The two games are part of the Northern Territory Government's partnership with the Parramatta Eels.

Tickets for both matches will go on sale in 2017 or visit the Parramatta Eels website for more information.
