PRESS RELEASE – Return to Lidcombe Oval

The “FIBROS” back at their former home Western Suburbs Magpies are flying back to their long-time base at Lidcombe Oval for the opening round of the VB NSW Cup.

With the Magpies Nest at Campbelltown Sports Stadium not available for the clubʼs season opener, theyʼll be lining up to face arch rivals the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles at the scene of so many of the infamous battles between the Fibros and the Silvertails 

On Saturday 3rd March 2012, the Magpies will be calling their former base ʻHomeʼ once again in what promises to be a trip down memory lane for many Wests fans and Rugby League supporters in general.

The Magpies flew west from Lidcombe to Leumeah a quarter of a century ago and have not graced the hallowed turf of Lidcombe since 1986. 

This nostalgic return to Lidcombe promises to be treasured and remembered for a long time to come.

Itʼs a rare opportunity for the Magpies and their supporters to relive memories of yesteryear when the famous black and whites became entrenched in Rugby League folklore as the ʻFibrosʼ representing the broad community that is the Western Suburbs of Sydney.

Round 1: Saturday 3rd
March 2012
Venue: Lidcombe Oval Kick-off: 3pm (Gates Open 11.30am)
Western Suburbs Magpies Vs. Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles
Tickets available on the day at Lidcombe Oval 
and at Wests Ashfield Leagues Clubʼs Reception
| Adults $10 | Children (16 years & Under) $5 | Kids 5 years and under FREE |
