Bulldogs To Support LifeFlight Again As Salter Oval Sell-Out Looms

The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs are just days away from arriving to Bundaberg for the regions’ second-ever NRL Premiership match, set to be played at Salter Oval on Sunday, July 30.

With the Bulldogs bringing their home-match to Bundaberg for the second time in as many years thanks to Tourism and Events QLD (TEQ), excitement is building for locals and travelling fans alike.

The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs will line up to play the Dolphins, marking the first ever meeting between the two sides in NRL history and as the Club prepares to bring this fixture to life, they have announced a final release of tickets.

With more seating (less standing) and improved vantage points, this historical moment will be one not to miss.

“We are greatly looking forward to returning to the area in just over a week,” said Bulldogs CEO Aaron Warburton.

“We have been working towards this regional fixture all year, and last years’ sell out spectacular against the North Queensland Cowboys has certainly left an impression with all our staff and players. We were overwhelmed by the warm welcome and the support we received from the Bundaberg community, and this years’ meeting with the Dolphins promises to bring an even greater event with better views, more family-fun activities and another great game of rugby league for locals to enjoy.”

The 2022 game played at Salter Oval on August 5, 2022, marked the first NRL match to be played for points in Bundaberg and a match where the Bulldogs announced $1 from every ticket sold would be donated to the local RACQ LifeFlight Rescue Helicopter Service.

Earlier this year (January), the Club fulfilled that promise and donated over $8,500 worth of training and medical equipment.

In 2023, the Club has once again promised to donate $1 from every ticket sold to next weekend’s fixture to the crucial, life-saving service.

RACQ LifeFlight Rescue has long been a trusted and relied upon provider of emergency aeromedical care, bringing critical care to seriously ill and injured patients across the Bundaberg region. Each year, the Bundaberg-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter flies hundreds of lifesaving missions, impacting the lives of so many.

“The Bulldogs are a community Club,” said Warburton.

“It’s the community who came together last year to enable us to make such a significant contribution to LifeFlight. They are the ones who put their hands in their pockets and chose to come and watch the great game of Rugby League at Salter Oval. They supported the Bulldogs and in turn, enabled us to support RACQ LifeFlight.

We are so pleased to once again be lending our full support to LifeFlight as a charity partner for the upcoming match and as we close in on another Bundaberg sell-out, we know we can provide even more funding to this essential service.

The Bulldogs are closing in on an expected sell-out, making the final release of tickets available to purchase this week.

“All remaining tickets are now available to purchase. We urge our members and fans to get in quick to secure their seats and not miss this special event.”

Tickets are available to purchase through the Club’s official ticketing supplier, Ticketek and patrons are being advised not to purchase tickets through any other outlet after reports of a false ticketing website provider have surfaced.


LifeFlight will have volunteers at the game collecting donations. To learn more about RACQ LifeFlight or to get involved, visit:
