The Club has accepted revised terms in a new agreement with Foxtel for 1st on Wharf, which will see its return to the Tavern from February, just in time for the 2020 footy season. The new agreement puts rugby league, AFL, football, cricket and other games and matches from Australia and around the world back on the big screens at the Tavern.
The return of Foxtel at 1st on Wharf Tavern aligns with major plans on the drawing board for later this year, with a proposed new street front entry, laneway and increased natural lighting.
Discussions about the refurbishment with long term and valued partner, the TAB, led to the renegotiations with Foxtel.
“The commercial rates for Foxtel are cost prohibitive for many venues and this has led to Twin Towns stance on the service during the past year,” said Twin Towns CEO Rob Smith.
“Whilst we remain at loggerheads over the cost to deliver this vision across all our venues, we felt it was appropriate to bring it back to the Tavern on the best terms possible, especially given our focus on sports at 1st on Wharf.
“1st on Wharf Tavern is a standalone business, operating independently of the Club, as a ‘pub’, so it attracts a different Foxtel pricing structure to the rest of our Club operations,” said Rob.
If you’ve been missing some of your favourite sports on the big screens around the Clubs, now is the time to head to 1st on Wharf Tavern for your footy fix or your chosen sporting hit. You will also find all the action on SKY Sports and OPTUS sports streaming.
1st on Wharf has always been the best place to enjoy a jug of Twinnies Crisp Lager, a ‘famous’ main meal deal with a free beer, wine or spritzer, or share some hot snacks around the table with your mates.
Make no mistake. Friday night footy is BACK at 1st on Wharf Tavern.
