Centenary of Rugby LeaguePrint Page Print this page

A plaque commemorates the centenary of Rugby League and also the historical significance of the site.

This venue (formerly known as QEII Stadium and ANZ Stadium) was the home ground of the Brisbane Broncos RLFC from 1993 until 2003. In that period the Broncos won four premiership titles: 1993, 1997, 1998 and 2000. State of Origin matches were played at this ground in 2001 and 2002.

The Centenary Plaques Programme was put in place by the Centenary of Rugby League Committee to commemorate sites of historical significance to Rugby League - such as stadiums, suburban grounds and club formation sites. Nearly every aspect of Australia’s Rugby League landscape is covered by a Centenary Plaque – with plaques dedicated to the commemoration of Indigenous Rugby League, National Rugby League (NRL) first-grade clubs, foundation clubs, former Premiership clubs, New South Wales and Queensland Country, and those sites which were host to the foundation of the game itself in Australia.
