LEAGUE lovers will think they are in football heaven when some of the big names in the code's history descend on Mundubbera on September 19.

Plans for a Sportsman's Dinner in Mundubbera and a match between North Central Burnett and South Central Burnett are in the works.

Men of League Foundation Fraser Coast promotions and publicity officer Trevor Lindeberg said high profile guest speakers were being approached. "The game played on the same day will hopefully become an annual match played under the banner of The Central Burnett Men of League Charity Shield, which will be rotated each year throughout the Burnett," Mr Lindeberg said.

The first organisational meeting was held last Saturday in Mundubbera with members of the Central Burnett Rugby League and the Men of League.

Several league officials attended the meeting to assist with arrangements for this rugby league event.

This evening promises to be a very special event for rugby league enthusiasts throughout the Central and North Burnett.

The sportsman's dinner will benefit the Men of League Foundation, Central Burnett Rugby League and a local charity yet to be announced.

Organiser Melinda Thorburn said this will be one of the biggest events that Mundubbera has seen for many years.

Early ticket inquiries $40 for this gala event can now be made by phoning either Gavin Ford on 0427654884 or Melinda Thorburn on 0427951795.
