Tickets for the Raiders regional fixture against the Penrith Panthers on Saturday May 4, 2019, are now on sale, after an official launch at McDonald's Park in Wagga Wagga this morning.
Canberra Raiders stars Aidan Sezer and Brad Abbey joined Mayor of the City of Wagga Wagga Councillor Greg Conkey OAM to make the announcement, that 10,000 tickets will be available for the match next season.
Tickets are on sale now through www.raidersshop.com.au or can be purchased from Raiders HQ (2 Eade St, Bruce), or through the Wagga Wagga Visitor Information Centre (183 Tarcutta St, Wagga Wagga) or the Oasis Regional Aquatic Centre (50 Morgan St, Wagga Wagga).

Cr Conkey said Wagga Wagga City Council is proud to bring the Raiders and Panthers to McDonald's Park in 2019.
"This marks the start of an exciting partnership between Wagga Wagga City Council and the Canberra Raiders, who are as much as part of the Riverina as they are the ACT," he said.
"It will be a huge green and gold weekend in the city, with the Wagga Wagga Gold Cup Carnival in the days before the Raiders-Panthers clash.
"This festival of sport will no doubt attract horse racing and NRL fans from around the state, so secure your tickets as soon as possible or you may miss out."
Canberra Raiders Halfback Aidan Sezer Said the team was looking forward to traveling to Wagga Wagga next season and the opportunity to play in the regional fixture was great for the game in the Wagga Wagga region.
"I can't wait to come out here next year to play in front of what will hopefully be a big Raiders crowd," Sezer said. "It's great that we are able to take one of our games to a country area and we know there are plenty of Raiders fans in the Wagga Wagga area so it's a chance for us to give back to this region."
