While the match itself takes on special importance as the Sharks attempt to climb off the bottom of the NRL ladder, outside of the playing field a range of activities have been planned to keep the whole family more than occupied on Sunday at Remondis Stadium.
On what is a Super Mega Family Fun Day where entry for children 14 year and under is free, one lucky fan will win $5000 in The Tradies Treasure Hunt, there will be dodgem cars, a free fall ride, jumping castle, side show alley games, a petting zoo, face painters and free show bags to first 1000 people through gates.
Sunday also supports Close the Gap round, an NRL initiative helping to bring awareness to Indigenous health issues, with the Sharks to wear specially-designed Kari Aboriginal Resources jerseys on the day.
The jerseys have been designed by Aboriginal artist Danielle Mate and is based on Kari’s logo, the tree. This artwork highlights the ‘family’ tree and the loving heart at the centre of every healthy family.
It is a design inspired by Kari’s logo colours and is about people coming together in groups and numbers, to support each other.
Also as a part of the Close the Gap formalities Tammy Wright, mother of Sharks indigenous player Jonathan, will conduct a Welcome to Country, while there will also be a special vocal performance by young Aboriginal singer Shanell Dargan, a recent XFactor Finalist.
The free general admission for kids is sponsored by Sharks back-of-jersey jersey sponsor Enzed, who are also holding a Junior League reply competition, where local clubs will be in the running to win $2,500.
There will also be post-match surprises and massive giveaways.
And if attending the game and you haven’t already, be sure to register for the Tradies Treasure Hunt, with $5,000 in cash on offer to those fans arriving at the game before noon on Sunday.
Be a part of the festivities, watch the Sharks take on the Raiders and enjoy the Super Mega Family Fun Day, this Sunday at Remondis Stadium.
The Match Day sponsor is Kari Aboriginal Resources.
