    The Sea Eagles are calling on its supporters to attend a vital public meeting at Warringah Council next Tuesday, February 16.

    Time: 6pm

    Location: Civic Centre, 725 Pittwater Road, Dee Why.

    In one of the most significant meetings in the proud 70 year history of the Sea Eagles, Warringah Council has listed on the meeting agenda the 2016 Licence for the use of Brookvale Oval by the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles.

    Following the Club’s ‘Fight for Fortress Brookie’ campaign, the Sea Eagles have been informed that Warringah Council received in excess of 2,000 submissions in relation to their proposed casual hire arrangements to the Club for 2016.

    The Sea Eagles are aware that less than 1% of these respondents support Warringah Council’s proposal that represents a 35% increase on 2015 hire fees to $60,000 per game.

    Despite this unfair impost and the overwhelming level of public support, incredibly, council management are recommending that councillors accept and implement the increased charges.

    Brookvale Oval has been the Sea Eagles home ground since 1947.

    This is a serious issue and everyone has a part to play in keeping the Sea Eagles at ‘Fortress Brookie’.

    Wear your team colours as the Club fights for the mighty maroon and white!

    Hey Penns, you can afford it. Pay for it. Stop playing games with your members and fans.
    Max gave 10 million to save this team. Pay the increase for this year. Get it sorted now and
    negotiate for a fairer deal later.
    I live about 1200k away but no membership from me until Brookie is confirmed.

      Notice how the story talks just about the casual ground hire fee - the most expensive - to fire up supporters. Penn tells us rugby league is a business. Manly members are his customers. Customers should not have to fight battles on behalf of the business. You made this mess Penn, clean it up on your own.

        That's a shame 'cause we know you'd 'walk 500 miles' - but not 1000!

          I just hope those that do go don't turn up in team colours and get all rowdy-like.
          My fear is that the owners want this so their arguments don't get taken seriously.
