The NRL Trial match between the Gold Coast Titans and the New Zealand Warriors at Lismore’s Oakes Oval is all set for Saturday, February 27 and Council say that tickets will go on sale next Monday.
In what Council says is a major coup for Lismore, the pre-season trial match will pit some of Australia’s and New Zealand’s best players against each other in the lead-up to the 2021 NRL season.
The main game will commence at 5.30pm with matches leading up to the main game including under 16 and 18 representative games between Northern Rivers Titans and Central Coast Roosters and a Titans physical disability team exhibition match.
A full day of football at Oakes Oval
Gold Coast Titans CEO Steve Mitchell said there will be a full day of football at Oakes Oval. ‘Whether you’re a footy fan or experiencing rugby league for the first time, this will be a great spectacle.
‘Our team, led by Coach Justin Holbrook, are keen to run out onto Oakes Oval and are excited to play on such a quality surface. With the future upgrades planned by Lismore City Council to further improve the facility, Lismore will fast become a sought-after sporting destination.’
Lismore City Council is currently undertaking the second stage of a $12 million refurbishment of Oakes Oval and Crozier Field to upgrade the playing fields, grandstands and amenities, Gordon Pavilion and join the two facilities via a covered walkway and spectators’ terrace.
