The Raiders are urging local bosses to let staff knock off early on Friday, so they can get to the game against Manly on time!
Kick-off is earlier than usual, with play getting underway at 6pm at GIO Stadium.
To help, the Raiders have asked members and fans to get their bosses to sign the #FridayFreePass, which lets them finish work a bit earlier on game day.
Once signed, post it on social media with the hashtag #FridayFreePass to hopefully get more people on the bandwagon!
The call comes as the green machine looks to build on their 2017 home crowd average of 15,500.
“The new timeslot of 6.00pm Friday is one we are really excited about and we hope we can continue the wonderful crowds we’ve had so far this season by having a big crowd on hand at GIO Stadium this Friday,” Raiders CEO Don Furner said.
“All we're asking is for bosses to be a little lenient this week and give their employees a little early mark so they can make it for the start of the game.”
