Red Bull are perfectionists when it comes to keeping secrets, so this weekend – the Vodafone Warriors are too! We cant tell you what is happening, but rest assured, you won’t be disappointed. Red Bull intends to make an impact when the Vodafone Warriors open their 2014 NRL campaign against St George Illawarra at Eden Park on Saturday.

The NRL fixture kicks off at 5.05pm, the last leg of a tripleheader package which starts with the New South Wales Cup encounter between the Vodafone Warriors and the Illawarra Cutters (12.40pm kick-off) the NYC clash between the Vodafone Junior Warriors and the Dragons (2.40pm kick-off).

While Cyclone Lusi is threatening to have a say in proceedings, Red Bull has big plans before the NRL match and at halftime but won’t say what is on the cards other than encouraging Vodafone Warriors members and fans to “make sure you come early, bring all your energy and be prepared to be revved up!”

Apart from Red Bull’s entertainment package another special game day feature will be the launching of the 2014 ‘Win a Suzuki Road Warrior’ competition. It will run at all home games during the season; all members and fans can enter but they must attend a home game to be able to do so (see details below).
