Night football will make its much-anticipated return to the Dragons' spiritual home following the NRL's announcement that the St.George Bank Dragons will play the Parramatta Eels at OKI Jubilee Stadium on Friday, 2 June. Kick-off has been scheduled for 7:30pm and the match will be televised on Channel Nine.

The round 13 match will be the first night match at Kogarah in seven years and will witness the debut of OKI Jubilee Stadium's impressive new lighting towers.

The last night match at Kogarah was in May 1999, when the Saints were defeated by the Sharks in front of 16,514 supporters. Following the match, referee Steven Clark required a police escort from the ground in scenes reminiscent of the 1998 Kogarah semi-final against the Bulldogs.

The last time the Saints clashed with Parramatta at Kogarah was in 2005 when the match sold out in record time. St.George-Illawarra were victorious by 25-22 in front of 17,523 supporters.
