Eels feel right at home

PARRAMATTA have nine home matches scheduled next season at the club's traditional home of Parramatta Stadium in 2014.

Eels chief executive Scott Seward said this is terrific result for members and the fans.

"Our members have been very vocal about their desire to have more games at Parramatta Stadium," Seward said.

"Members are the backbone of this club; they spoke, we listened, and in 2014 we will bring blockbusters back to Parramatta, including a round 18 Friday night clash with the Rabbitohs."

The Eels will play two games at ANZ Stadium, with an Easter Monday afternoon clash set for round seven against the Wests Tigers.

In round 22 the Eels travel to Darwin to host the Raiders at TIO Stadium as part of a four-year deal with Northern Territory Government.

Other features of the 2014 Eels' draw include, the return of day footy at Parramatta Stadium with two matches in round 10 against St George Illawarra Dragons and round 16 versus Newcastle Knights.

One highlight is the round six heritage round match between the Eels and Roosters on April 12, 2014, marking the 67th anniversary date of the Eels' inaugural premiership match when they entered the league on April 12, 1947.

Eels fans will be hoping to see Jarryd Hayne at his best in 2014.

Hayne was outstanding for Australia in the recent World Cup winning team playing as a centre.
