Centenary of Rugby League - Sydney Sports GroundPrint Page Print this page

A plaque commemorates the centenary of Rugby League and the historical significance of the Sydney Sports Ground.

This was the site of the Sydney Sports Ground which hosted premiership and representative rugby league matches from 1911 until 1986. It was the former home ground of the Eastern Suburbs club and until 1947, South Sydney. It was demolished in 1986 to make way for the Sydney Football Stadium.

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.
