Broncos ready to tackle biggest regional fan day


The Brisbane Broncos will head to Dalby this month for the team’s biggest regional fan day, hosted by official energy partner Arrow Energy.

The 2017 Arrow Energy-Brisbane Broncos Fan Day, on Saturday 25 November, includes a children’s football clinic, family entertainment, NRL merchandise and giveaways, a free BBQ, and autograph signings.

The team will be led westward by Captain Darius Boyd, who recently extended his contract with the club for four years.

“The club’s fan base is unrivalled and I know all the boys love getting a chance to thank those people who have supported us all year,” Boyd said.

“We really are lucky to have the best fans in the NRL and while not everyone can make it to a home game, their support every week helped us finish the season strongly.

“I’m excited about what we can achieve in 2018 and it is fan days like this that get the team pumped for a big season ahead.”

This is the fifth year Arrow has made the free event possible for Western Downs fans, through its partnership with the Broncos.

“Arrow and the Broncos have worked together since 2012, delivering regional coaching and educational programs as well as the highly anticipated fan day,” Arrow Energy Vice President External Relations and Tenure Management Leisa Elder said.

“The Dalby fan day has grown year-on-year with thousands of people from local areas coming along to spend the morning with the team.

“It’s great to see kids who may otherwise not have the opportunity to meet their favourite football players, running around with their heroes on the field,” Ms Elder said.

Broncos prop and fan favourite Sam Thaiday, who has attended every fan day event with Arrow, says it’s a day not to be missed.

“I love this part of our role – meeting the kids and families that keep rugby league so popular in our State,” Thaiday said.

“It’s a fun day out for the whole family and I’d encourage everyone in the region to come along.”

Fans will also have the chance to win some great prizes including Brisbane Broncos membership packs and signed jerseys.

The Arrow Energy-Brisbane Broncos Fan Day will be held 9.00am - 11.00am, Saturday 25 November, at Dalby Leagues Club, Orpen Street, Dalby.
