Sea Swift Northern Pride have confirmed that their Round 18 Intrust Super Cup game against PNG Hunters at The Jungle (Barlow Park, Cairns) on Sunday 29 June will be LIVE on free-to-air television via WIN TV and Channel 9.
The clash, which will kick off at 2.10pm, is expected to draw a huge crowd to The Jungle and is a massive occasion for Far North Queensland rugby league fans.
Pride Chief Executive Officer Brock Schaefer said that with school holidays having just begun in late June, and Sunday afternoon football back in Cairns, it will be an historic occasion not to be missed.
“It’s going to be an incredible afternoon for everyone, and a real chance to showcase to a statewide TV audience why FNQ is the heartland of rugby league in Australia,” said Mr Schaefer.
“We had a crowd of around 3,000 for our trial game against the Hunters earlier this year, and we’ll be expecting an even bigger crowd this time around.
“In fact, I think you’ll probably see PNG fans outnumber Pride fans, as there’s a huge PNG expat community in Cairns.
“I also think you’ll get a large number of people travelling down from PNG – for example, when we played the Hunters last time, airplanes from Port Moresby were full in the week before the game.”
Mr Schaefer said a host of events and activities to celebrate the occasion would be announced in the coming weeks.
He also urged fans to buy their grandstand tickets early to avoid disappointment – tickets are available to buy now at www.ticketscairns.com.au
