It's an exciting time to be a Sydney Roosters Member!
From the conclusion of the 2018 NRL season, work will commence on the rebuilding of our spiritual home, Allianz Stadium.
At the conclusion of the re-build, Members and spectators will be able to enjoy a new, modern, world-class venue which will include state-of-the-art facilities and improved transport initiatives, making it easier to travel to and from the Moore Park precinct.
In the interim, the Roosters will call the historic Sydney Cricket Ground home, a venue where the Foundation Club has decades of rich history.
We played our first match there in 1913, won our first premiership there in 1923 and who can forget the glory days of 1974 and 1975 when one of the greatest teams in Roosters history won consecutive premierships at the SCG in front of massive crowds.
Indeed, the first try scored in rugby league at the SCG was scored by a Rooster when Dan Frawley scored for NSW in the 1911 match against the touring New Zealanders.
The legendary Dally Messenger also notched a first in that match – becoming the first NSW captain to lead his state onto the famous ground. It's no wonder Messenger has an SCG stand named after him alongside Don Bradman, Victor Trumper and Monty Noble.
To ensure Members have the opportunity to see the seating and facilities available at the Roosters' new home, the Roosters will host an Open House on Sunday 29 July, prior to the Club's Round 20 clash against the St George Illawarra Dragons.
The Open House will also feature an information session for Members to hear from the Club about the relocation, explanation around the proposed seating and facilities within the venue and a chance to ask questions.
Staff will be on hand to assist with any questions Members may have around the seating and the seat group process.
Members will have the opportunity to access the hallowed SCG turf on their way to the O'Reilly Stand to get an understanding of the facilities and seats available.
Members can enter the SCG via the Walk of Honour (next to Gate A and behind SCGT Venue Services), which will be open from 1:00pm.
We understand that not all Members will be able to attend this session, so a video will be placed on the Members HQ for you to watch later or you can collect the information from the Membership marquee at the game.
