Kiama Council is providing buses for local rugby league fans wanting to attend the grand final between the Kiama Knights and Jamberoo Superoos on Sunday.
Mayor Mark Honey said the match was an opportunity to celebrate local rugby league.
“We have a proud rugby league history in this region with many great names such as Cronin, Wishart, Timmins and Morris,” Cr Honey said.
“These great players are a product of great local clubs and a strong local competition in Group 7.
“The local derby between Jamberoo and Kiama is a fantastic chance to celebrate the players, coaches, volunteers and supporters who are the heart and soul of local rugby league.”
Cr Honey has encouraged residents and businesses to get behind the local derby by showing their colours in the lead-up to Sunday’s grand final.
“Shop owners in particular can show their support by decorating their stores in red and black for Kiama or red and green for Jamberoo,” he said.
“Whether you are a sports fan or not, we can all take this opportunity to show the pride we have in our community.
“After all, no matter the result, the Kiama Municipality will be once again claiming the premiership, after Gerringong’s back-to-back efforts in 2015 and 2016.”
“I wish the players, coaches and fans from both teams all the best on this historic occasion.”
