Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) is one of the oldest sports stadiums in the world, and an icon of Australian sport. The land on which Sydney Cricket Ground sits was granted to the British Army in 1846, and was first used as a cricket ground in 1854. The New South Wales Cricket Association began regular use in the 1870s, and the state government commenced work to upgrade the facility. The first cricket test at Sydney Cricket Ground was played in 1882 between Australia and England.

Qudos Bank Arena – Sydney Kings

The Sydney Kings have long been regarded as one of the glamour clubs of the National Basketball League (NBL). Adopting the LA Lakers colours of purple and gold, the original iteration of the Kings was formed in 1987 as an amalgamation of former Sydney NBL clubs the Weststars and the Supersonics. After finally experiencing sustained success during the early 2000’s, the Kings NBL license was terminated in 2008 after the owner was unable to pay player salaries. The iconic franchise was eventually relaunched for the 2010-11 season. Following the demolition of the Sydney Entertainment Centre at Darling Harbour, the club moved west to Olympic Park and now call Qudos Bank Arena home.
