Seagulls celebrate finals footy with family fun day

Tweed Seagulls are already assured of finals footy this season for the first time since 2014 and to celebrate, their major sponsor Ben Campbell is hosting a family fun day for their final home game against Northern Pride at Piggabeen on Saturday, August 31.

“The club and Ben Campbell really wanted to do something for our fans to thank them for their support through this season,” Seagulls CEO Paul Stephenson said.

“To get to the finals is a huge achievement when you think we narrowly avoided the wooden spoon only two season’s ago!

“We’ve worked hard both on and off the field, with the support of our major sponsor Ben Campbell Building Group, to build a club that is sustainable and successful and reaching the finals is vindication that the strategy we adopted two years ago is working.

“The family fun day is a chance to celebrate how far we’ve come and for us and Ben to give something back to our fans."

The club are putting on a free bouncy castle and face painting for kids and the Gold Coast Titans are coming down with their jumping footy inflatable and heaps of giveaways for kids.

“We’ll also have officers from the Tweed Byron Police and members of Tweed District Rescue Squad showing off their cool vehicles," Stephenson said.

“And we’ll be looking after the big kids too.

“Thanks to our great mates at TopSport, one lucky fan will get the chance to kick for $250 cash at half time and on the day women and kids will get in for free.

“We’ll also be giving away 50 goodie bags, each crammed with over $40 of value from our amazing sponsors."

To get a free goodie bag, head to the club's Facebook Page – Tweed Seagulls – and register to attend the Family Fun Day – the first 50 people to register will receive their goodie bag at the game.

“We’d like to invite the whole Tweed Community to come down and celebrate with us," Stephenson said.

Gates open at 1pm with the Hastings Deering Colts kicking off at 2.20pm and the Intrust Super Cup sides taking to the field at 4pm.
