Wests Tigers today confirmed the club will be switching some home games to the new Parramatta stadium next year
The new agreement will see Wests Tigers play four home games at the brand new stadium in 2019, with the club committing to Western Sydney Stadium until at least the end of 2022.
The ground is already going to be used by Western Sydney Wanderers in the A-League and Parramatta Eels in the NRL.
The club will move the four home games previously played at ANZ Stadium to Western Sydney Stadium from 2019, as the NSW Government prepares for the redevelopment of ANZ Stadium.
Western Sydney Stadium will provide 30,000 undercover seats and will bring fans closer to the action than ever before in Australia.
Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe said the club was excited by what the future holds at Western Sydney Stadium.
“Western Sydney Stadium is set to be an incredibly impressive facility, which will provide the best game day experience in Australia,” said Pascoe. “We could not walk away from the opportunity to take games to Western Sydney Stadium.
“As a club we owe it to our members and fans to provide them with the best possible facilities and Western Sydney Stadium will offer a great viewing experience.
“The new stadium will provide us with the opportunity to theme the venue to give it a real home ground feel which I’m sure our players, members and supporters will appreciate."
Western Sydney Stadium will feature the steepest grandstands in Australia, bringing fans close to the action and creating an impressive event experience. The rows of seating have been installed in such a way that it will provide an unprecedented viewing experience for fans.
The new venue will also provide an impressive range of corporate hospitality options, including an exclusive corporate offering where guests can watch players enter and exit the field of play while viewing the game from ground level.
Wests Tigers Head Coach Ivan Cleary said that the new venue offers all the facilities needed for the team.
“Western Sydney Stadium is going to be a great place to watch and play rugby league and our players and coaching staff are excited by what the future holds there,” said Cleary.
“Key to our success on the field is having the facilities available for the players to prepare pre-game and then recover post-game and this venue has everything we need in the one place."
