This Sunday the St.George Illawarra Dragons return to OKI Jubilee Stadium Kogarah for their scheduled second match this season at the rebuilt ground against the Cowboys. Work continues on Stage One of the project, despite the terrible weather encountered by the builders.
Fundraising and Promotions Manager, Frank Bates said, " Work on the Legends Walk will not commence until all the Granite Tiles and Pavers are sold. There are 132 Tiles and 210 Pavers left for sale." As an incentive to Dragon Supporters and Businesses in the area, the Steering Committee has continued the special offer of an etched Tile ($500) and Paver ($200) for only $600 until the end of June. "A small investment for people to have their name or business associated with such a great ground, club and legendary footballers." Bates said.
There will be an Information Booth located at the Main entrance in Park Street, where people can register for this special deal and representatives will be handing out promotional brochures around the ground.
In addition to the Legends Walk deal, Local Businesses, Hotels, Clubs and Restaurants, should take advantage of the 'Special Packages' incorporating Premier Seating, Food and beverage and a host of other attractive incentives.
The Number One Box at the Ground, which holds 20 people, is available for the remainder of the season, following Integral Energy's generous offer to donate the use of their Major Sponsors' box in aid of the Jubilee Oval Community Appeal.
All enquiries should be directed to Frank Bates on 0419 251 596.
Fans attending the game should pre-purchase their tickets at St.George Leagues Club to avoid the Sunday rush and disappointment. A large crowd is expected for this match that the Dragons must win.
