Back to Belmore is looking forward to working in partnership with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs to help deliver a big day for locals and sports fans.
The NRL draw was released today with the Bulldogs set to return to Belmore Sports Ground next year and host the Wests Tigers on Sunday, 8 August under COVID-safe guidelines after their premiership match planned for Round 10 on Friday, 15 May this year against the Manly Sea Eagles was cancelled in the early days of the coronavirus outbreak.
A crowd of 13,131 packed Belmore Sports Ground for 2019's Bulldogs-Storm clash, but capacity next year could depend on what COVID protocols are in place in August.
Back to Belmore Patron Luke Brailey welcomed the scheduling of the Bulldogs game at the historic sporting facility.
"Having the Bulldogs play at Belmore is a real coup for the Canterbury-Bankstown district and we'll be working hard with the Bulldogs and Canterbury Bankstown City Council to make sure it's a fantastic weekend for the local community," Mr Brailey said.
"Being COVID-safe is a part of daily life now. People understand that and we will need to be aware of that and follow the health guidelines in place at the time of the game and enjoy the rich history of the iconic venue in a COVID-safe manner."
