GO MAGGIES

Magpies Rugby League celebrating 100 years.

AFFILIATED CLUBS

Magpies proudly support 10 affiliated sporting clubs and co-found Magpies Crusaders United, representing the Mackay & Whitsundays region in the Queensland National Premier League (NPL).

SOLOGINKIN OVAL AMENITIES

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 withn 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.

MAGPIE OF THE YEAR

Magpie of the year is an annual event, awarding sporting excellence within Magpies affiliated sporting clubs.  Players are awarded with bronze, silver or gold medallions based on the level of achievement reached within their sport.  Each year an outstanding Magpies player wins the gold medal award for excelling in their sport at a representative level, possessing leadership qualities, displaying sportsmanship, team commitment and club loyalty.  The coveted Magpie of the Year award honours a Magpies volunteer or adminstrator for their considerable contribution to Magpies over at least 5 years.

Great sporting venue with courteous, helpful staff.

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.
