Plans revealed for new rugby league facility in Adelaide’s north

Plans revealed for new rugby league facility in Adelaide’s north
December 21, 2016

Rugby league clubs in South Australia will soon benefit from a $5.5 million development offering purpose-built facilities.

In a state where AFL dominates, rugby league clubs believe the new development at Penfield in the city’s north will support the grassroots development of their code.

Central Districts Rugby League Club President Adam Levy said modern facilities would help attract more local families to the sport, telling the ABC “our committee over the last five years has been putting in the hard yards to support the community and now the community is supporting us back.”

The eight-hectare park in the City of Playford local government area will have three ovals suited to cricket, football and both rugby codes.

NRL SA said more than 15,000 people were playing rugby league in South Australia, across junior and senior competitions, including touch, flag and tackle.

Next year, a regular season NRL match will be played at Adelaide Oval, with the Melbourne Storm taking on the Sydney Roosters.

Work on the new fields is expected to be completed during 2017.
