Albury Sports Ground
The Albury Sports Ground is located near the CBD of Albury and is the home ground of the Albury Tigers Football Club in the Ovens & Murray Football League. The venue is near the NSW bank of the Murray River and features a historic grandstand on the north-western flank and a members' club with a grandstand and changing rooms on the eastern wing. It now has a maximum estimated capacity of around 8,000, but in the past has been capable of hosting crowds of around 15,000.
The ground is primarily used for Australian football and cricket but has also hosted other sports including rugby league and union. In 1952, it hosted the round 8 VFL match between North Melbourne and South Melbourne, while the South Sydney Rabbitohs played a trial game there in 2019. Its history dates back to the 1980's and was considered Albury's primary sporting ground before the Lavington Sports Ground took its place in the 1970's. There was talk of a redevelopment of the Albury Sports Ground in 2016 however as yet nothing has come of it.
