Panthers fans show their support at Pepper Stadium in Round 17.

Full day of family fun at the foot of the mountains

Panthers fans will be allowed onto Pepper Stadium and have the chance to pose for photos with their favourite players as part of a family entertainment day on Sunday.

For the first time this season at the Panthers' home ground, 'Fans on the Field' will take place giving children the opportunity to kick a footy on the field after the NRL Telstra Premiership match against Canberra.

There's also a post-match function at Pepper Stadium's West Bar from 4pm where Penrith players will meet fans and pose for photos. Coach Ivan Cleary and captain Peter Wallace will take part in a question and answer session.

The day kicks off with a free members BBQ from 11am at the Leagues Club. The first 100 members to arrive will receive a free Panthers t-shirt and flag.

They can then take part in the inaugural MG's Members March to Pepper Stadium – led by Panthers legend Mark Geyer.

The match is also raising funds for Ronald McDonald Nepean Family Room at Nepean Hospital.

Ten dollars from each adult ticket and $5 from every junior ticket will be donated to the volunteer-run facility, which provides a home away from home for families of seriously ill children undergoing treatment in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
