Top grade rugby will return to Orange with confirmation a Shute Shield game will again be played at Wade Park.
Regular visitors Eastern Suburbs will be back for the third time and this year the Beasties will tackle Gordon on Saturday, June 1.
The game will be televised live on the Seven network.
The two Sydney clubs will play first grade and second grade games on the day.
The first grade clash will be followed by the local Orange derby where Orange City will host Orange Emus under lights.
Earlier in the day it is planned the two Orange clubs' second and third teams will clash.
And Easts' and Gordon's women's teams will play at either Pride Park or Kinross on the Friday night or Saturday morning.
An Emus v City Colts game will also be played with the women's game.
The event has been organised with $15,000 funding from the state government, plus Orange City Council has upped its contribution to $10,000.
Council Sport and Recreation Policy committee chair Jason Hamling said it would be a fantastic day for rugby.
"Council thinks it's a great promotion for the city that we are going to have a live game at Wade Park on a Saturday afternoon," he said.
"We have gradually built [funding] up, $10,000 will be our limit for years to come, Easts know that," he said.
"It is a costly exercise to bring three full teams up and the TV production plus the fact you've got your two local clubs playing the game after so it is going to be a feast of rugby here on that Saturday and we're expecting a big crowd to come down and we're going to involve the juniors."
Orange City president Steven Sharp said it would benefit junior players and boost the local economy through tourism.
"There are so many other sports to compete with so this is a way of getting our juniors to watch some really good footballers in action," he said.
Emus president Steve Fergus said it was "a great day to be a part of. Any derby game is always a real atmosphere in the week leading up, you really add to that with the Shute Shield game," he said.
James Grant, whose son Jack plays for Easts, said the players enjoyed coming out to the country.
