why 8 at cambo ? nowhere near our leagues clubs or COE and makes no sense. We may aswell train at parramatta and play at kogarah oval …

There is a leagues club attached to the ground and a railway station and a carpark. What’s the COE got to do with were we play.

What does the Leagues Club at Campbelltown have to do with Wests Tigers?

Read the last few posts above. They were also on the board of Wests Tigers but gave their vote back to Wests Ashfield. They also were once one the partners in bankrolling WT but gave that away to focus on bankrolling the juniors in the area,

It is nowhere near the Leagues club of our owners.

I have yet to find out when Wests Ashfield sold Wests Campbelltown. I know it is now part of the Wests Group Macarthur but who owns that. Not being smart. Wests Ashfield bought the leagues club at Campbelltown when the Magpies moved there. I have not been able to find anything that says they sold it.

I also can’t find anything that says it is one of their assets either.

Bit like playing certain teams at certain grounds… You do know sometimes we play some once, some twice… Impossible contractually
There’s no right answer… With this topic everyone has a different pov, dozens of options… and it shows why the clubs done nothing for 20 years trying to appease all

Well it is time the club grew a set and they set the agenda ! But as someone suggested to me today there is no divided supporter base ,yeh right ! Maybe read these threads …
The time is right to move forward the club just needs a can do man ! But they are in very short supply these days !

It wasn’t suggested there was no divide …The question was why would playing at several home grounds cause a divide as you claim it does…?

Wouldn’t selecting 1 home ground supporters don’t like divide the supporter base…It’s looks like from the responses in this thread given everyone has there own preferences it would achieve that…Lets see

ANZ…it’s a cavern no good for Club footy
BankWest…Hate it…it’s Parra’s home ground
Campbelltown…Too far from Concord/Leagues Club
Leichhardt…it’s a dump lose money playing there…

It’s only a dump in your eyes Geo. Same as C’town to me.

Its a dump in my eyes as well.

the club lives in sydney

The NRL can’t make decisions based on us. There’s only been 5 gfs with both teams from Sydney in the NRL era.

You haven’t noticed how Sydney centric V’landy’s is? I highly doubt the Grand Final leaves Sydney.

Your probably right, but I bet he knows he had a great bargaining chip and the govt know he’s bullish enough to move it at least once.

I actually think we will get a couple of redeveloped grounds out of it and the Grand Final will stay here.

Oh I agree. He’ll get what he wants and hopefully that helps us.

The problem is, where do you do these redevelopments? just like the problems we have as a club with there not being one ideal location, each of the locations proposed for these redeveloped grounds have issues too.

Brookvale- one tenant

Campbelltown- would have multiple tenants but the Wests Tigers would need to commit the vast majority of their games there and I see that as unlikely

Penrith- one tenant

Kogarah- would need to convince Sharks or maybe Sydney FC to play games at the ground and St George need to play in Woolongong as well.

Wherever clubs and councils want modern stadiums. If they can’t agree then they won’t get anything. Penrith and Brooky look the most likely. Darcy Byrne has signaled his grand vision so that crosses them off. If Wests don’t want a full-time move to Campbo and saints /Cronulla can’t agree then they get nothing aswell.
Upgrades like Campbos last one shouldn’t be entertained.

I really think these new or refurb grounds should be multi tenant grounds, that rules out Penrith and Brooky. Campbelltown is a good option because it would have multiple tenants if the Wests Tigers can be convinced to play the majority of games there. The other idea is to joint with the bulldogs and push for the Liverpool proposal.

But how many multi tenant grounds are there that need developing? Liverpool would be a great option, maybe towards the new airport.

If you are going to move that far out of inner sydney you may as well go to campbelltown. there is already everything there.

The club needs to advise there membership base if they are planning to walk away from there inner west/ western/ north western Sydney areas and make Campbelltown there home ground …that’s not an issue but there is a need to know … you can not ask for memberships to be pledged and not be transparent …
The sooner the better !

What do you mean by walk away…?

The COE for Wests Tigers is being built in Concord…that wont change…

Where they play if it were to be 1 Ground…Campbelltown, Bankwest, ANZ, Leichhardt or Timbucktoo will be a while off should even these upgrades get done…

Also most Clubs have various home grounds and all take home games to various other places in a season…

Why does playing at different grounds for home games divide the supporter base as you claim…?

I’m not sure about dividing the supporter base but we’ve used 5 grounds as our Sydney home ground now. Dont you think that is ridiculous?

Not if it brings in the cash…

Thats a good argument for playing at the stadiums. But we lose money getting 10k at the suburbans, which we regularly do.

The suggestion is move to 1 Stadium… said that …being BankWest, ANZ, or a redeveloped Campbelltown or Leichhardt…the Suburbans won’t be as they are if they are redeveloped…seems the issue is now is that the One could be Campbelltown we have already have questioning of renewals of memberships if that ends up being the case…

I don’t see a problem playing at ANZ BankWest WestsSFS or Timbucktoo in one season…if it brings in revenue for just playing there…

This is a long way off anyway…

A long way off? Do you mean the suburban grounds getting developed or the clubs desire to have one home ground. They could have one home ground next year.

It won’t be next year. I believe there is still a ways to go on their contractual arrangements with ANZ/BankWest.

That doesn’t mean that it can’t be next year.

Can only be if it is BankWest, otherwise we will have to wait for one home ground.

or ANZ, they are both managed by venues NSW

If i remember rightly the deal with ANZ was transferred to Bankwest only because ANZ was going to be out of action. You would think we would have to be given the option to return to ANZ.

is Grant locked in to storm next year if smith retires ?

Yes. He is contracted until end of 2022.

Contracts were made to be broken in the NRL.

Just stating a fact - if we want to sink to parras level then go for it.

@Geo said in Four new suburban stadiums or grand final will go:

People know they don’t all meet up at Concord on game day and travel to whatever home ground right…

Lol. Just like the under 8;s - parent roster to shuttle the kids to the game and then off to Maccas after the game for a milk shake.
