With venue capacity capped at 7,500 due to COVID-19, access to the two matches will be restricted to those who have stood by the Knights during recent months, who will be rewarded with exclusive access to McDonald Jones Stadium.
“It’s important we look after the supporters and partners who have stood by us through numerous challenges in 2020, and this is the first step,” Knights CEO Mr Philip Gardner said.
"There will be no general admission tickets sold for our upcoming games with the Eels and Bulldogs. This will be a members only event.

“Our passionate and committed members are the heart and soul of the club. They had the option of taking a refund but they didn’t and now they’ll be the first to return to McDonald Jones Stadium.
“I have no doubt they will make the noise worthy of a 30-thousand sell out, creating a special atmosphere and sea of red and blue.”
A limited number of tickets will be made available to commit members, with tickets to be allocated by ballot conducted by Ticketmaster. No tickets will be available for public purchase.
The Knights membership team will be contacting pledge members later in the week via email with further details.
