Magpies proudly support 9 affiliated sporting clubs and co-found Magpies Crusaders United, representing the Mackay & Whitsundays region in the Queensland National Premier League (NPL).
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.

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.
One of the many ways that we provide support for these groups is through a raffle program which enables all affiliated bodies the opportunity to raise much needed funds to assist them in reaching their goals.
We appreciate any support that you may be able to provide for these Clubs and all funds raised from the raffles are directly distributed to each group.
