Brilliant News!

Great work by Pascoe. This is a big step forward. Clubs like ours are built from the ground up. This type of facility will be turning out fans, better players and deeper community engagement for years to come.

Rugby League needs to be about the people.

I truly believe that the Tiges are becoming a community club. This long term, foundations first strategy is the right play and will work.

This facility is about the people. Our no 'd@@k head' policy is about the people. Our every increasing activity in the community is about the people. Improvements in the game day experience is about the people.

At a time when the NRL is becoming more corrupt by the year, the Tigers are going the other way. As a fan I am very happy about this!
Totally agree mate

What does $5.5 million get you?

These are the figures from other clubs:
The recipients announced by Sports Minister Stuart Ayres were the Bulldogs ($2 million), the Roosters ($5.765 million), the Knights ($10 million), the Rabbitohs ($8.696 million) and the Sharks ($8 million).
More than $0 gets you!

I cannot believe some people are whinging on both these threads (c’mon mods - 1 thread!). This is awesome news. Wests Tigers heading in a new direction- the right one!! Another tick for the team. 2018 onwards is looking great. Go Tigers!!!

Did they have to agree to a west connex smoke stack running through the middle? Concord is a very short sighted decision
Quite the opposite. It's actually a major urban development corridor. Makes sense to have a new community hub like this right in the middle of it.

An excellent result for the club and also a smart move to link it to the PCYC.

Good on you Tigers - for once at least we ended up with something.

Now to collect the rest of the promised financing.

Lovin' it.

It's a great result. Will give the other partners confidence that it's been through an intensive review by the state government and they've got the thumbs up.

Did manly get nothing?
Just adding up the figures posted by Sabre (The recipients announced by Sports Minister Stuart Ayres were the Bulldogs ($2 million), the Roosters ($5.765 million), the Knights ($10 million), the Rabbitohs ($8.696 million) and the Sharks ($8 million)) that's just under the $40m allocated so it would appear not. Pity......... :lol:
Seems I was wrong......

The biggest winners were Newcastle and Manly who were set to be allocated $10 million.

Other funding grants were: South Sydney ($8.7m), Cronulla ($8m), Sydney Roosters ($5.76m), Wests Tigers ($5.5m) and Canterbury ($2 million).

The key to government grants is to get the money spent. All these allocations will have caveats around them that the rest of the funding must be found first (or at least a high proportion of). If you don't get the money spent, than it often disappears. New governments don't honour old governments promises. Let's hope we are a long way towards securing additional funding.

It's a step in the right direction, however I will be interested to see where we source the rest of the funding. I assume the local councils will stump up some but that won't be enough based on the initial model and forecast.

I wonder how much the PCYC and Canada Bay council kicked in.

I don't think it was enough as the Wests Tigers and Manly both have not had their funding approved yet. They both have to "further develop" their proposals

He doesn't give a specific amount but, he says it's significant.

Going off the Michael Chammas article in the SMH back in March this year:

The Tigers, who arguably have the worst training facility in the NRL, are expected to put forward in excess of $10 million which will be matched by the state government to build one section of the facility.

The club has also gathered financial commitments from several different bodies to fund close to $30 million needed to build the community-based section of the facility.


So the club was expecting $10m and got about half of that. Not complaining, because $5.5m is alot of money, just means they will either have to dip into their own pockets a little more, or seek alternative cash injections from elsewhere.

Wonder if Pascoe has Benny's number ... :lol:

I'd be interested in knowing why out funding hasn't been approved? Does anyone know anything?
