Tully beckons NQ Cowboys
Cassowary Coast Regional Council has extended an invitation to the North Queensland Cowboys to experience the new $7 million sporting facilities on offer in Tully.
Mayor Mark Nolan extended the invitation personally to Cowboys CEO Jeff Reibel. Councillor Nolan said the Tully Multi-Use Sporting Complex and Grandstand provided first rate facilities and had been designed and built to National Rugby League standards.
“Our region is home to many enthusiastic rugby league fans and having the Cowboys play in Tully would be a dream come true for many fans. “There are also many activities off the field on offer on the Cassowary Coast- with the ‘102 things to do’ and visitors can connect with adventures and experiences found nowhere else."
Councillor Nolan said residents were encouraged to come down and check out the new facilities in Tully and support the local games being played.
“I’ve been down to watch the games and it’s a special, festive atmosphere with the locals getting behind their teams and cheering them on."
The President of the Tully Tigers Rugby League Football Club, Anthony Emmi said the opportunity would be great for the community.
“There are upcoming games being played. In July- Queensland Outback will be playing North Queensland United and an Intrust Super Cup game will be played in August- Souths Logan vs Northern Pride.”
