ES Marks Field
The ES Marks Athletics Field is a sports facility located at Sydney's Centennial Park. Prior to the opening of the Sydney Olympic Park precinct at Homebush, ES Marks Field was the premier track and field venue in New South Wales. It is also the former home of National Soccer League club Sydney City Hakoah, who won champions in 1977, 1980, 1981 and 1982, as well as a training base for the Sydney Roosters NRL club.
The venue features undercover grandstand seating on the western side and around the southern end, with a total capacity of around 8,000. The majority of this stand is concrete terracing, with seating located under the grandstand roof on the western side. The venue continues to be used for athletics carnivals with around 100,000 visitors per year. Today the ground is a relic of the past with its glory days behind it, however work commenced on a $4.8 million redevelopment in April 2021 with will give its facilities a much-needed upgrade.
