Monument ready for stadium installation

Post by Qbec » Thu Jan 27, 2022 12:37 pm

Can someone tell me what happened to the original design of two tigers prancing toward each other, as it now seems we will just have the head of one tiger as the gate monument.

As shown: Tigers Foundation monument project update, 8th Nov 2018

It got scaled down in 2020 when the club's finance's took a hit. I don't know if that means the club was originally funding some of the project and subsequently decided against it, or if public donations weren't as much as was hoped for and it was just coincidental timing with the pandemic. Or... other.

I don't mind the single head tbh, and I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished concourse. Should be a great space once it's done - I'm hoping it'll be before the end of this season.

The completion date for the hotel was given as Spring 2022 so it should be before the end of the season.
