Located in Lidcombe, a suburb of western Sydney, Lidcombe Oval was home to the Western Suburbs Magpies in the NSWRL between 1967 and 1986. The ground most epitomises the rough and tumble nature of the Magpies and Rugby League generally throughout the 1970s. It is famous as the setting for Ray Martin's infamous 60 Minutes report in 1979, which exposed Wests coach Roy Masters' tactics of face slapping and wall punching to psyche his players up before a match. Today the ground is home to Sydney Crescent Star FC in the NSW Premier League soccer competition.

As the name suggests, the ground is oval in shape. A cycling track surrounds the playing field. There is a small old grandstand on the western side. The rest of the ground is surrounded by grass hills and wooden benched.
