Tigers' Rd5 venue change

The Wests Tigers and the SCG Trust have advised that the Men of League Heritage Round match (round five) between the Wests Tigers and the South Sydney Rabbitohs on Sunday April 1 (3.00pm) will be transferred from the Sydney Cricket Ground to the Sydney Football Stadium.

The decision was confirmed today as a result of construction work underway as part of the $186m upgrade of the Noble, Bradman and Dally Messenger stands.

The Wests Tigers will continue with plans to celebrate the 60 year anniversary of the 1952 Grand Final in one of the feature moments of this year’s the Men of League Heritage round.

"Heritage round has a special significance for the Wests Tigers club and our members and fans really get into the spirit of the occasion," Wests Tigers Chief Executive, Mr Stephen Humphreys, said.

"By moving the match to the Sydney Football Stadium we can be sure of the facilities that will be in place and we will have a very real chance of filling a great football stadium.

"Tickets go on sale tomorrow (Thursday February 23) and I am sure that everyone will want to guarantee their seat."
