Sydney Showground at Olympic Park has been renamed Giants Stadium in a landmark sponsorship deal. While specific details are unknown, it has been confirmed that a group of wealthy Giants fans have financed the deal to brand the stadium with the name of the team; a first for an Australian stadium.
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.
