SYDNEY, Australia – Zurich Financial Services Australia (Zurich) today announced their new partnership with the National Rugby League (NRL) Wests Tigers, including sponsorship of the new state-of-the art training and administrative facility – the ‘Zurich Centre’ – and the Wests Tigers women’s team.

Forming part of the new Concord Oval and community sports precinct, the Zurich Centre boasts leading administrative and training facilities including a pool, gym, wrestling room and a physiotherapy space.

The new centre was opened today during a ceremony attended by State and Local government officials, Wests Tigers corporate partners and alumni.
