New Zealand Warriors to host The Great Big Kiwi Coast Party, Cameron George says

0

The Warriors and legendary New Zealand rock band Dragon are set to team up when they combine for “a really unique game day” on Sunday, in an effort of the Kiwi club to thank the “fantastic” Central Coast community.

The Great Big Kiwi Coast Party will see Dragon belt out their biggest hits in a pre-game one-hour show on the Central Coast Stadium turf, setting the stage for the Warriors’ clash with traditional rivals the Melbourne Storm.

The Central Coast has become a second home for the Warriors since the suspension and restart of the 2020 NRL season forced the club into relocating to Australia amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Warriors chief executive Cameron George says the club wants to show its gratitude by treating locals to a “taste” of Kiwi culture.

“For two seasons now we’ve called the Central Coast home, away from home, and we’ve got a great stadium in Gosford,” George told Wide World of Sports.

“The community has been very supportive and we wanted to get together with them and invite all the Kiwis to the Central Coast and share in what we get around the coast, which is fantastic hospitality and a great location.

“We’re reaching out for all Kiwis to come and join us and obviously with Dragon it’s a really unique game day.

“The residents of the Central Coast have all been great, whatever culture they come from. They’re really getting behind us as Kiwis and we want to give them a taste of what our culture is like and this game day will certainly representative that.”

George raved about Dragon, a rock band inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2008.

“Huge. It’s a very, very popular band, they’ve been around for a while, they’ve got a number of fantastic songs that really resonate to the pubs of all ages and generations in Kiwi land,” George said.

“They’re one of the favourites and to have them come and play on Sunday is amazing. To have an hour-long concert before the kick-off just marries up to a fantastic day.”

The gates will open at 10am and fans will be treated to performing artists and food stations, as kids are entertained by fun games, less than a month after the Warriors announced they’d remain based in Australia for the rest of the season.

“It’ll be a day to remember,” George said.

“We’re really pumped about it.”
