    WestConnex join Wests Tigers as Community Partner

    Sat 3rd December, 02:50PM

    Wests Tigers are pleased to announce that WestConnex has joined the Club as a Community Partner.

    Under the new agreement WestConnex has signed as a Wests Tigers Community Partner for the next three years.

    Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe welcomed WestConnex, and CEO Dennis Cliche, to the Club.

    “On behalf of everyone at Wests Tigers I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome WestConnex to our Corporate Family,” said Pascoe. “We look forward to developing a long and successful partnership with WestConnex and achieving the goals of both organisations.

    “At Wests Tigers we’re committed to making a meaningful difference to those in our community and with the support of WestConnex we’ll be able to increase the level of participation in, and interaction with, our programs.

    “Over the coming year we’ll be launching a number of new community programs that will support those within our footprint across a range of areas, with the support of WestConnex an integral part of the roll out,” he said.

    Sydney Motorway Corporation CEO Dennis Cliche said he looked forward to working with Wests Tigers to deliver meaningful benefits for communities throughout western Sydney.

    “As part of our ongoing commitment to western Sydney we are partnering with local organisations that share our values of health, safety, environment, diversity and economic development,” Mr Cliche said. “Wests Tigers’ community care program is one of the most highly regarded in the NRL and we are extremely pleased to support their great work to make a difference for local communities in the west.

    “While WestConnex will help unlock western Sydney’s potential with more jobs and less congestion, we want to deliver positive outcomes for the community during construction and beyond,” he said.

    WestConnex will widen and extend the M4, duplicate the M5 East and join them together to form a continuous free-flowing western bypass of Sydney’s CBD, with connections to the airport and port precincts. For more information visit http://www.westconnex.com.au/.

    Lol “Mr Cliche”
    Then spends the whole article speaking in them.



  • Good move. Let’s hope this is the start of a good partnership with state govt to bring the centre of excellence to fruition.

    Yes reminds me of Doctor Doctor in catch 22.You couldnt make this stuff up could you.Having said that it is a forward move for the club.



  • Not sure this association is being viewed as a positive thing for fans who live in the innerwest. The Westconnex is largely seen as a community disaster rather than a community partner.
    Don’t know what incentive the club had to jump on board with them but let me assure you it better be worthwhile to appease the many residents/fans who are largely opposed to the project.



  • Meh…
    Many fans would have neg opinions on many sponsors…Im sure many of those innerwest fans arent great fans of Highrise Harry as well

    Personally, I always thought Don was not good



  • The opposition to this project is huge and spreads over many suburbs. There is motive for Westconnex to support Wests Tigers just not sure what the sweetner is for the Wests Tigers - will be very interested to see.

    They must be getting a big sweet carrot, or why would they put their brand name alongside such a divisive project. As you said there would be very few fans of the project around the inner west.

    Although from where I sit, I take little or no interest what name is spread over our jumpers and grounds…but I do get concerned when we don’t have any names to splash around

    What? Herbal World and Raddisson Maine were always on the level… 😆



  • Smart move from WestConnex, they need any positive press they can get in the inner west. I’d be happier if they put the Camperdown exit back in the plans, since the idea was to take traffic OFF Parramatta rd.

    I don’t think sponsorship from an unpopular and politically contentious company is neccesaraly detrimental for a Footy team, Souths have been running around sponsored by the Star Casino, and that joint’s not exactly a favourite in this town either.

    Sounds like the perfect corporate partner for the WT then!

    Haha assume your a member of the professional whingers then. The opposition to the project is minimal in the inner west and overall most people everywhere realise we have to improve our roads and that this is a good idea. Most people I know in the inner west either are looking forward to it or just dont care but opposition is limited to professional whinging class

    It seemed like a good idea until they decided not to completely bypass parramatta rd, now it will just be another half assed unfinished road that doesn’t quite go where it was supposed to. NSW is built out of unfinished infrastructure, like shaving a lane off the M5 tunnel.

    I wasn’t even born yet, but in the 70s there was a project called the North Western corridor, which would have freeway from the Sydney CBD linking onto the Newcastle Freeway. The Gladesville bridge is the only bit of it that ever got built. Westconnex will be the latest road that almost worked.

    Well said bb.

    Some people on this forum like to put crap on the club no matter what they do.

    Good move by our club.

    :righton:

    PS. For “inner west” read Greenies.



  • Maybe they can build a tunnel in and out of Leichhardt Oval 😃
