Wests Tigers to play four matches at new stadium in 2019

The Wests Tigers are on the move.

The club will move four matches from ANZ Stadium to the new Western Sydney Stadium next season, becoming the first NRL club to commit to matches at the venue in 2019.

While the Parramatta Eels will be the main tenants, the Tigers will play four games at the 30,000-seat venue as ANZ Stadium prepares to undergo major redevelopment at the end of 2019.

The Tigers have still committed for three games each to be played at their suburban home grounds in Campbelltown and Leichhardt for at least the next two years.

The Tigers will give up one home game as part of the Magic Round in Brisbane next year, and are still deciding between Auckland and Tamworth to play their 12th home game.

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," Pascoe said.

"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.

"In coming to this decision we've worked closely with Venues NSW and the stadium operator to ensure that the needs of the club, our players, members and fans will be met and that the move to Western Sydney Stadium is in the best interests of all parties."
