Claremont Oval

Claremont Oval, officially known as Revo Fitness Stadium following a naming-rights agreement in August 2019, is an Australian Football ground located in Perth, home to WAFL side Claremont Tigers.

A major redevelopment of Claremont Oval commenced in 2012 with the old grandstand demolished as well as structures and trees removed to make way for a new grandstand with improved seating and facilities and apartment built around the ground, reducing capacity to 5,000.

Before 1925, the "Claremont Recreation Ground" served as a Cricket and Soccer Ground, with no fence, native bush on the eastern side, near the Showgrounds, with the remaining area a sandy wasteland. Upon Claremont-Cottesloe's admittance to the 'A' Grade of the WAFL competition in 1925, for the 1926 season, the council spent 5000 pound to bring the ground up to standard for league football, including the dumping of rubbish around the perimeter to create the sloping banks and the construction of a grandstand.

As the new ground and grandstand were not yet ready, the team played all home games of 1926 at the Claremont Showgrounds. The first game played at Claremont Oval was on April 30 1927, where East Fremantle trounced Claremont-Cottesloe, 19.10 to 4.12.

Claremont Oval has been used by the club as a home ground from that game forth, except in 1945 and 1946, where, due to the grandstand fire in 1944, and the condition of the playing surface, the club shared with Subiaco at Subiaco Oval. In 1944 the grandstand built in 1927, was burnt to the ground, destroying much of the club's history, records, equipment and premiership pennants. For over 10 years afterwards, old army tin sheds served as the changerooms for teams playing at Claremont Oval.

The current facilities at Claremont Oval were built in 1956, and 1970 (the R.J.Kyle Pavilion), replacing the 'tin sheds' and they helped move the club into a new era of professionalism. Claremont Oval continues to serve the club well, and in 2002, Claremont will play its 700th league match at the ground.

Claremont Oval is located on Davies Road, Claremont. Claremont Oval neighbours the Claremont Showgrounds to the east, and the Perth-Fremantle train line to the south. The Claremont Train Station is a 30 second walk from the ground and there is ample parking next to the ground by the station. The many pubs, clubs and shops in and around Bayview Terrace are also within a short walk from the ground.
