NRL Club ticketed members and fans who buy a ticket to any NRL game this weekend can gain free entry to the Wests Tigers v Bulldogs match at ANZ Stadium – and be treated to a special live performance by The Wiggles before the game.
The NRL announced the promotion today for NRL Ticketed Club Members and ticket holders as part of its fundraising initiatives for the RiseForAlex round where a $1 from every attendee will go towards the Rise for Alex Fund.
Under the deal, all NRL club ticketed members and Round 19 ticket holders will be given free entry to the Wests Tigers v Bulldogs game at ANZ Stadium on Sunday by showing their NRL Club Membership Card or Round 19 NRL event ticket at Gates B or K. General Admission seating will be available between Aisles 115 – 126 and Aisles 134 – 145.
And, as a special bonus, The Wiggles will perform prior to the game at the Wests Tigers v Bulldogs match in preparation for their national and arena 'BIG SHOW! Tour' in November and December.
Wests Tigers fan, Blue Wiggle Anthony Field said the group was excited about helping Alex with Sunday’s concert.
“We can’t wait to get the crowd up, singing and dancing for Alex” Anthony said.
“The West Tigers v Bulldog game would have been an exciting event anyway as we are all huge Rugby League fans and so to be part of an event with the NRL Community that helps one of our own, Alex McKinnon, in his time of need will be such a wonderful experience.”
In addition to The Wiggles special live performance, one of the NRL’s biggest ever Family Fun Days will be held at ANZ Stadium on Sunday including a giant barbeque starting at midday outside Gate L with a $3 sausage sizzle. All proceeds from the Barbeque will be going to the RiseForAlex Foundation.
Additional activities include:
• Face Painters

The activities will take place both outside the stadium (at the training facility opposite P1) and inside the stadium (at the south west terrace and concourse).
RiseForAlex merchandise will also be sold at the match with all proceeds being donated to the RiseForAlex Fund.
