Wests Tigers has today released its scheduling of matches for their home grounds for season 2012.
The Club will play 4 home matches each at Campbelltown Sports Stadium and Leichhardt Oval. Three home matches will be played at the Sydney Football Stadium as well as a home game against traditional rivals South Sydney Rabbitohs at the historic Sydney Cricket Ground.
The Rabbitohs clash will see Wests Tigers celebrate the 60th anniversary of the 1952 grand final between Western Suburbs and South Sydney at the SCG as part of the annual NRL Heritage Round. It was the last time Western Suburbs won the first grade premiership.
Campbelltown Sports Stadium will see Wests Tigers tackle fellow western Sydney clubs Penrith and Parramatta in 2 of the 4 matches to be played there.
The round 22 match against the Eels will be the first time Parramatta has played a premiership match against Wests Tigers at Campbelltown Sports Stadium.
Wests Tigers will start the season with a home game against Cronulla Sharks at Leichhardt Oval.
The venue will also host 2011 runners-up the Warriors in round 11 and the Melbourne Storm in round 26.
Wests Tigers will tackle big guns Brisbane, Bulldogs and St George-Illawarra Dragons at the Sydney Football Stadium - matches which should again draw huge crowds.
The round 6 game against Brisbane will be played on the evening of Good Friday over the Easter weekend.
