2022 Affiliates Challenge

The 2022 Magpies Affiliates Challenge was held on Friday 11th February at Sologinkin Oval with nine Magpies Sporting Club affiliated clubs taking part in various light-hearted, fun games.  For the first time this year the Magpies family enjoyed the Sologinkin Oval canteen food while the nine clubs took part in six games including trivia, flippy cup, link racing, ball relay, thong toss and egg throwing.  Magpies Crusaders United were eventually crowned winners on the night, taking home a $500 Cheque, Magpies Senior Rugby League took home a $250 cheque for finishing in 2nd position and Magpies AFL Club finished in 3rd position receiving a $150 cheque. All the other Magpies clubs took home $100 cheques for participating in the event.

“Thank you to all the clubs, families and friends that attended the annual Affiliates Challenge this year. It was wonderful to see all the sports clubs affiliated to Magpies Sporting Club come together in one place, enjoying each other’s company, and getting involved in the activities in good spirit,” said Gayan Loku, Sport & Community Liaison Officer – Magpies Sporting Club.

In May 2019 we celebrated the Grand Opening of the new amenities building at Sologinkin Oval, officially opened by Mackay Mayor Greg Williamson. This was our most ambitious and challenging project to date, costing in the vicinity of $2.5 million dollars, fully funded by Magpies Sporting Club with no government grants or assistance.


The facilities have a strong focus on meeting the needs of female sporting participants including gender friendly changeroom with floor to ceiling showers, as well as a gym, ice baths and dedicated room to add spa’s. Four change rooms service the field, including individual change rooms for referees. The facilities are of state competition standard, we consulted not only with our own stakeholders in Magpies Rugby League Club and Magpies Football Club, but with Queensland Rugby League and Football Queensland. The design come from the desks of BSPN Architecture and had been 5 years in the making; the project was at first postponed due to the opportunity to buy back the club from the landlord in 2015.

I like coming to this place, if not just to visit the club then using the facilities is just as impressive for a regional location.
