Kogarah Oval is a multi-purpose stadium located in Carlton, also known as the UOW Jubilee Oval. The popular stadium is primarily used to host NRL rugby league matches and is home to the St.George Illawarra Dragons. In addition to the NRL, the stadium also hosts regular soccer matches.
For a stadium whose first game was held in the 1950s, Kogarah Oval has undergone several renovations to maintain its structure, integrity and to modernise.

The first game was officially played at the stadium on 22 April 1950, where this memorable match saw the Dragons lose 17-15 to the iconic South Sydney team. With a capacity of 20,500 people, it is easy to see why Kogarah Oval is a popular destination for sports enthusiasts in Sydney.
Parking is available, but this is sometimes stretched to its limit during popular match days. Limited parking is also available at the St. George Leagues Club, as well as opposite the grounds and in the streets that surround the grounds. There are also two key parking areas within Kogarah, and these include a commuter car park at Kogarah station, as well as at the council park on Derby Street.
The most accessible transport option to Kogarah Oval is the train to Carlton Railway Station, which is just a five-minute walk from the stadium. Use the T4 Eastern Suburbs and the Illawarra Lines, with Kogarah Railway station also providing an ideal choice. Disabled parking and wheelchair seating is available by contacting the office.
While at the stadium, look out for the Legends Walk of Fame that features more than a dozen club greats that have been inducted. They include Craig Young, Ian Walsh, Mark Coyne, Johnny King and Norm Provan,
