Game Day Sponsor: Zango

We welcome back Zango as our Round 15 game day sponsor. Zango is
Canberra’s largest locally owned and operated property portal. Today,
more and more Canberra sellers are choosing Zango as their preferred
local portal to advertise their property. That’s because Zango was
created by local property agents who are committed to getting
outstanding results for their customers while recommending the best
value for their marketing dollars.

So, if you want to win the property game, ask your local agent about
Zango and Get The Home Advantage.

Game Day Theme: Members Appreciation 

Over the last 40 years, Raiders members have proven time and time
again why they are the best in rugby league, and Members
Appreciation Round is a perfect way for the club to say thank-you.

The club has surpassed 22,000 members and will have plenty of activations running throughout the day to show plenty of appreciation for the best members in Rugby League. 

The highlight will be in the Members Lounge at the Western side of the ground, where there will be Gecko Gang, live player interviews and the Late Mail will be released at 1pm, so make sure you get to the ground early and settle in for a great day. 

It's not too late to sign up as a member, with 2022 members still on sale for as little as $55. Sign up as a 2022 member here.

Game Day Charity: Wa Initiative 

Rork Projects has launched the Wa Initiative – an initiative to enact
positive future change through the education and empowerment of
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.

Wa (pronounced wah) is a word in the Torres Strait language of Kala
Lagaw Ya and also in Torres Strait Creole meaning yes and Rork
Projects believe that through supporting education – Indigenous
communities, families and students can say yes to having a positive
future which leads to better outcomes for their families, community
and for the nation.

They support other Indigenous foundations and not-for-profit
organisations in their work in offering quality, secondary education
scholarships at leading Australian boarding schools for Indigenous
children from regional, rural and remote communities.

Our 50-50 Charity Raffle proceeds from Round 15 will be going to our Game Day Charity, The Wa Initiative. Raffle tickets will be available online and to purchase at the game, with 50% of the prize pool going to one lucky winner and the remaining amount to the charity.

Raffle tickets can be purchased online via and at the Game on Sunday afternoon.

The lucky winner will be drawn in the second half of the NRL Round 15 match, Raiders v Knights.
