Press claims for Subi’s benches

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

MORE than 300 items from Subiaco Oval will go un­der the ham­mer on Satur­day.

The first lot of seats will be auc­tioned off, in­clud­ing 322 tim­ber benches from the twotier stand, which were first con­structed in 1981 and are some of the ground’s old­est seats.

Ross’s Auc­tions Dave Crofts said the seats would be con­verted into free-stand­ing benches for peo­ple to pur­chase.

“We’ve had a lot of peo­ple wait­ing for these seats to come in to the auction,” he said.

“I would say they would sell be­tween the $200 to $400 range per seat and these are heavy­duty seats and you wouldn’t ever have to re- place them again.”

The auction will also fea­ture 65 plas­tic seats, in­clud­ing home and op­po­si­tion cheer squad seats, and the high­est seats in the sta­dium from the back row of the three­tier stand.

Other items in­clude sta­dium sig­nage, player in­ter­change benches, and phones and head­sets from the coach boxes.

Ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est will be taken for all re­main­ing seats at www.wafoot­ball.com.au.
