Members Update: Round 7

Wests Tigers will look to make it three wins in a row when they take on the Parramatta Eels at ANZ Stadium on Easter Monday, with kick-off at 4:00pm AEST.

With back-to-back wins over the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles and North Queensland Cowboys, the Club come into their Round 7 match against the Eels inside the top four, and could consolidate that position with a win this weekend.

As such, the Club wants all members and fans present at the ground on Monday, and has provided all the latest member updates and details ahead of this week’s clash — including details on seating, parking, transport and more.

(NOTE: Even though this match is being played at ANZ Stadium, this is NOT a Wests Tigers home game. As such, some member benefits will be different).

Three Top Tips

1. Leave the car at home — With the Royal Easter Show in full swing right next door to the Stadium, all fans who have not pre-booked parking should not drive.

2. Additional services — Take advantage of the additional and direct train and bus services put on for the Easter Show and included in the event ticket.

3. Arrive early — Arrive early to soak in the atmosphere of the Easter Monday clash (and it's also a good way to avoid the crowds on the day too!)
