It’s not every day you get to train alongside your favourite NRL stars on their home ground during a week leading into their biggest game of the year, but that’s exactly what a lucky group of Manly fans experienced this week thanks to Sea Eagles Premier Partner Lottoland.
'The lucky winners of Lottoland’s ‘Train with the Team at Lottoland’ promotion were not only put through their paces on the training field, but also enjoyed a behind-the-scenes tour of the Sea Eagles home ground and sat in on a video session with Head Coach Trent Barrett.
“An amazing experience that we’ll never forget,” said one of the fans as they enjoyed lunch together with the team at the end of the day.
“It’s obviously a big week for us returning from New Zealand and getting straight into our preparations for Saturday against Penrith at Lottoland, but that just adds to the inner-sanctum experience we were able to provide today,” said Barrett.
“Lottoland are great supporters of the club and it’s excellent to see that their involvement can filter through to the fans and get them an opportunity like today that not many people outside the players and coaching staff get to experience first-hand,” Barrett added.
Lottoland Australia Marketing Director Matthew Brinckley didn’t strap the boots back on for the session, but was there to see the competition winners enjoying their money-can’t-buy experience.
“We’re loving the involvement with the Sea Eagles and it’s great to be able to leverage our strong partnership to bring together the fans with the team here at Lottoland,” said Brinckley.
“We’ll be back here at Lottoland for the final home game of the year on Saturday supporting the Sea Eagles push into the finals,” Brinckley added.
Lottoland Australia (Lottoland) linked with the Sea Eagles in February this year as a Premier Partner of the club including naming rights of the home ground at Brookvale on Sydney’s Northern Beaches and branding across the top back of jerseys for home and away games.
Since launching in 2013, Lottoland has grown rapidly to become a world leader in the online lottery sector. Innovation, coupled with the freedom to offer players a unique and enhanced lottery playing experience, has been key to Lottoland’s success.
