Cement your place in Eels history In 2012 the Pirtek Parramatta Eels are offering members and corporate partners the unique opportunity to be immortalised alongside the Club’s greatest ever players and coaches in the soon to be launched Eels Walk of Fame*. The Eels Walk of Fame will lead from the entrance of Parramatta Leagues Club along Eels Place (formally the western end of Grose Street) to the corner of O’Connell Street, Parramatta. Set to become a permanent tribute to the Club’s Hall of Fame inductees, including greats such as Peter Sterling, Brett Kenny, Michael Cronin and Jack Gibson, the Walk of Fame will feature each name on individually tailored pavers. The Pirtek Parramatta Eels are giving you, its loyal Members, a once in a lifetime opportunity to have your name on an individual paver alongside the players famous for their heroics in the Blue and Gold jersey. Available for purchase by Eels Members and corporate partners only, individual pavers will be available for $500 and family pavers* for $1,000. A place on the Eels Walk of Fame will cement your family’s name in the Parramatta Eels’ proud history for years to come. Only 1,200 places will be available for Phase One of the Eels Walk of Fame initiative - Don’t miss out on this rare chance! For more information on securing your place on the Eels Walk of Fame contact the Parramatta Eels Membership Department. * Family pavers can only be purchased by 2012 family season ticket holders. * Estimated time of construction – June 2012 Please note: Images do not represent final design of Eels Walk of Fame

From Simon Baker...

Like many other Eels fans based out of town, I’m often half a world away from Parramatta Stadium… but as an Eel for Life Member I always feel connected to the team. As an actor, a big part of my daily life is about having the confidence in my own ability and that of co-stars and production staff, to film entertaining television. I see the same confidence in the way the Eels go about their football under Steve Kearney. The passion the players have for that Blue and Gold jersey. My two sons and I can’t wait for the 2012 season to begin and see the likes of Chris Sandow and Willie Tonga join Nathan Hindmarsh, Jarryd Hayne and the rest of the boys as they take on the NRL’s best. There is so much to look forward to. When the guys aren’t out on the field, I love keeping up to date with all the latest news on the Eels iPhone App – and logging on to the Members Only section of Parraeels.com.au for exclusive content. And when I’m home, there’s nothing better than joining the Blue and Gold Army out at Parra to cheer on the team. I’m proud to be an Eel for Life – are you?

From the Coach...

As a coach, player or supporter, the NRL season can be a rollercoaster of emotion – but since joining the Eels I’ve noticed there is one constant… the passion and commitment of our Members. Whether our team runs out at Parramatta Stadium, north of the border up in Brisbane, Townsville or Gold Coast, or even across the ditch in New Zealand, we can always count on there being Blue and Gold in the crowd and it’s something that I know means a lot to the players. In season 2012, we’ll be working hard to convert the effort and commitment from the squad into Premiership points. Capitalising on the Club’s strong junior base is one of our major goals moving forward and this is evident in the recent re-signings of the vast majority of our promising youngsters –there are certainly exciting times ahead for Parra fans with the talent coming through the ranks. The emergence of players such as young Mitchell Allgood, Ryan Morgan, Jacob Loko and Taniela Lasalo was a highlight of 2011 and they will continue to improve under the leadership of our experienced guys such as Nathan Hindmarsh, Luke Burt and Tim Mannah, to name a few. As a group, we’re in a solid position to improve on our 2011 season and the addition of some exciting players such as Chris Sandow and Willie Tonga will certainly add further spark to what I believe is already a very capable unit. We are all proud to represent that Blue and Gold jersey – and we’re proud to have the most loyal Members in the NRL behind us.

Stephen Kearney Head Coach

From the Captain...

As a player who will proudly pull on the Eels jersey for the 15th year this season, I am well placed to tell you just how much it means to the players to have the loyal support of our Members behind us each week. I’ve spent my whole career at Parramatta and through the ups and downs, the Blue and Gold Army have been there to lift us when we need it most. That’s why I’m proud to be an Eel for Life. I love nothing more than when I see a sea of Blue and Gold Members at each game – whether it be at Parramatta Stadium or at each away game, and hopefully at ANZ Stadium on Grand Final day in October. But if you can’t be there, you can join me as an Eel for Life by taking up a Non-Ticketed Membership. You’ll still get all the great benefits of being an Eels Member, and be able to show your true colours from afar. There is so much to be excited about for season 2012 – we’ve got a great batch of youngsters coming through the ranks and one of the game’s most exciting players in Chris Sandow joining us. As an Eel for Life Member, you’ll get great offers on Eels merchandise, exclusive interactive features and content on our website and NRL-leading iPhone App, and first shot at the best tickets to all Eels games. The ultimate reward we will be working hard to bring you is the Premiership… so join me as an Eel for Life as I give it my best shot to hoist that trophy up in front of you on Grand Final night.

What is an Eels Membership?

Parramatta Eels Memberships are divided into ticketed and non-ticketed packages. A Member describes all supporters who have paid for either of these packages. Ticketed Membership: The purchase of this package will entitle Members to attend all Parramatta Eels Home Games. Ticketed Members are also entitled to all 2012 Member privileges. Non-Ticketed Membership: This package gives Members access to all 2012 Member privileges excluding a season ticket to Home Games.

Why become an Eels Member?

Member support is vital to the clubs survival and the best way to support your Rugby League Team. A Parramatta Eels Membership will help to financially aid our Rugby League Team in securing our financial future and will help keep our local juniors with our club. Parramatta Eels Members are also the source of the electrifying atmosphere at all Eels home games at Parramatta Stadium and all 2012 Members will have the opportunity to be there every week supporting our boys. We encourage all of our supporters to become Members and show their true Blue and Gold support. By becoming a 2012 EEL FOR LIFE Member you will be closer to the action than ever before!

What are the benefits of being an Eels Member?

Members of the Parramatta Eels National Rugby League Club will get access to a range of Member only privileges. In 2012 all Members will have brand new opportunities to gain ‘EEL FOR LIFE’ status with the introduction of our Member Jersey and Walk of Fame initiatives. This year the Parramatta Eels have also introduced brand new Membership types, such as, the “Swarm” Membership and Cayless Membership Category 2 which will give more Members the opportunity to support the Parramatta Eels at all home games. Members will also receive greater access to the players through exclusive open training sessions and Fan Day, access to Members only merchandise, discounted tickets to Eels Home Games, access to exclusive Members only news and much more making Membership a worthwhile investment for all Parramatta Eels fans.
