6th September 2017
In partnership with Paladin Sports and charity partner the Mark Hughes Foundation (MHF), the Legends of League (LOL) are bringing back all the big names from yesteryear for one action packed say of 'old school' Rugby League. The inaugural LOL Tournament will be held at Central Coast Stadium on Saturday November 18th, 2017
The Central Coast region was chosen for its passionate Rugby League fan base, its proximity to Sydney and for being the gateway to the Hunter region, which has a massive Rugby League following.
This retro Rugby League festival will feature 9 games back to back on one action packed day of entertainment with a % of the gate takings to be donated to the MHF to directly support Beanies for Brain Cancer.
6 teams (Brisbane, Manly, Newcastle, Parramatta, Canterbury & the Barbarians) comprising of 90 former Rugby League Legends will compete for over $100,000 in prize money.
It’s 9 v 9 on a modified field size with a game duration of only 30 minutes. Some of the biggest names in Rugby League have been recruited to play including Wendell Sailor, Gordon Tallis, Steve Menzies, Danny Buderus, Kurt Gidley, Nathan Hindmarsh, Willie Mason and Craig Wing.
We’re even bringing back Legendary whistle-blowers Bill Harrigan, Sean Hampstead and Steve Clark to be the LOL match officials!
