  • SCG, 2019-21 Home Ground

    Just heard from the club regarding the relocation to the SCG next season so the new stadium can be built, to be completed by early 2022.

    There is an open day for members at the SCG before the Dragons game to look at the facilities and walk onto the ground.

    Made me a bit sad to think the SFS wonít be our ground anymore. Have had plenty of great memories there. Makes me feel the players have something extra to play for this season. There are maybe 5 more games before they knock the joint down.

    Reminds me of when we played at Henson Park when the stadium was being built.

    Anyway, letís make the most of it til then and get them home with the Cup this year. Go Easts!
    Get out of the way, I'm next

    The SCG has always been our 2nd home, it'll be great next year, such an historic place.

      Hopefully the next game I see there will be better than the last. Our former halfback and his kicks out on the full.

          I wonít go watch a match of league there again, dump of a ground for league. Unfortunately no membership for me until sfs is redone. Might just get the out of town member pack.

            Hard ground the SCG. Hopefully the surface doesnít cause injury.

                Still will, just not at ďhomeĒ

                Been there a few times and never enjoyed it. Will still watch them at Bruce, and will have to make a trip to the new parra stadium which looks impressive.

                  Same for my family, we are out for a few years now. Watching League at the SCG is just not enjoyable

                    Looks like our crowd numbers will be down significantly. I agree itís a crap ground to watch league but Iíd attend a game anywhere to support my team.

                      All the members reserved seats in the Bob OíReilly stand. Chookpen on the concourse only, no chookpen undercover.
                      Day games sun in the eyes all day. Terrible seating plan.
                      Looking at the proposed seating map the Brewongle, the Clive Churchill and the Victor Trumper stands not allocated for members.
                      A lot of members are not going to be happy. I guess visitors get the best available seating in those stands at an inflated price.
                      The club is not taking care of the members who support them every week. Very disappointing.

                        I still cannot see why we have to spend billions building a new stadium here + our at Homebush.

                        Stuart Ayre will probably lose his seat in the next election when the Libs are bundled out of office and the whole thing will just become a messy, failed vote buying expedition.

                        PS - I still think we should play at ES Marks.

                          Loved Bob O'Reilly in his days with us, but there might be a merging of the Bill O'Reilly Stand and the old Bob Stand.

                          Agree with the posts re the SCG and its suitability for watching league and also sitting in the sun.

                          I expect there are existing agreements with the SCG Trust and our headquarters, etc and other clubs at other grounds, but to be honest I would have preferred us to have investigated options such as Hensen Park - North Sydney Oval - Concord Oval and a possible country game at Bathurst and a tour of the suburbs and Sydney's League history as the only club to have participated in the competition at grounds of our historic opposition like Earl Park (St. George), Pratten Park (Wests), etc for games like the Cowboys and Gold Coast.

                            Actually i don't think it is completely ridiculous some of the stadium investment should have also gone into the second tier sporting facilities.

                              My mistake. Bill OíReilly stand!
