Charity Shield to remain in Mudgee for further two seasons

Glen Willow Stadium will remain the home of the Charity Shield until at least 2023, the St George Illawarra Dragons, South Sydney Rabbitohs and Mid-Western Regional Council announced on Friday.

The stadium has successfully hosted the last three Charity Shield fixtures and is preparing for the fourth this coming Saturday, February 27.

Mayor of the Mid-Western Region Des Kennedy said he is proud of the strong relationship forged with both clubs over the last four years.

"I am delighted that the Dragons and Rabbitohs are on board for another two years bringing us to a total of six games in Mudgee," Mayor Kennedy said.

"Glen Willow just gets better and better, as a proven venue capable of hosting NRL games in front of crowds of more than 9,000.

"That experience will be on full display this coming Saturday as we host the 2021 Charity Shield. If you haven't already seen Glen Willow in all its glory this is your opportunity and tickets are on sale."

Second allocation tickets for the Charity Shield are available at 123tix.com.au

Dragons CEO Ryan Webb said: "We are pleased to see our Charity Shield partnership with the Rabbitohs and Mid-Western Regional Council continue through until at least 2023 at our home away from home, Mudgee.

"The Central West of New South Wales is a crucial area of St George Illawarra support. We look forward to continuing our engagement with our Red V members and fans throughout the local community."

Rabbitohs CEO Blake Solly said: "As a club, we are delighted to have extended the agreement with Mid-Western Regional Council for a further two years.

"We believe it is important for NRL clubs to make the effort to give back to the regional areas and communities that produce so many wonderful footballers for our clubs and the competition.

"We have formed a fantastic relationship with the community in Mudgee and the surrounding regions and we look forward to building on that over the next two years through the annual Charity Shield match and through the programs run by Souths Cares."

There is only a limited amount of tickets still available for the 2021 Charity Shield next Saturday, February 27 are still available at 123tix.com.au.
