Lavington Sports Ground

Redevelopment/Construction

Located in Hamilton Valley, just north of Albury, the Lavington Sports Ground is one of the premier sporting ovals in country New South Wales and regularly hosts sporting events such as AFL & NRL practice games. The Lavington Panthers Football Club (OMFL) and Lavington Cricket Club call the ground home while it also plays host to the Ovens & Murray Football League Grand Final. It also was the home ground of former VFL club Murray Kangaroos.

The Lavington Sports Ground has an estimated capacity of around 20,000. The ground features a large hill and terracing as well as a grandstand seating 1,250. There are four large light towers which were upgraded in 2010 to provide TV broadcast standard lighting.

The venue has played host to many big sporting events. On the 18th of March 1992, it hosted a Cricket World Cup match between Zimbabwe and England, with Zimbabwe winning by 9 runs. Many pre-season AFL & NRL matches have been held while it also hosted the 2011 NRL City v Country origin match. In February 2014, the ground will host its first A-League match with Melbourne Heart hosting Perth Glory. The record crowd at the ground was 20,169 for an AFL pre-season match between Essendon and Carlton.

The Lavington Sports Club is located adjacent to the ground. Also at the venue is a velodrome and netball courts. In July 2009, the facility was sold by Penrith Entertainment Group to the Albury City Council for $1.2M. During 2019/20, the venue is being redeveloped with improvements and an extension to the existing grandstand, terracing on the outer wing, as well as a the construction of a second multi-purpose playing field and a pavilion with seating between the two grounds.
