Jubilee Oval at Kogarah is the home ground of NRL side St.George Illawarra Dragons who also play games at Wollongong’s WIN Stadium. The ground was formerly the sole home of the St.George Dragons before they merged with the Illawarra Steelers. The Dragons moved Sydney games back to Kogarah in 2003 following heavy community lobbying after previously playing them at the Sydney Football Stadium.
Since the Dragons returned to their spiritual home, the venue has undergone a significant transformation. An initial $2.4 million upgrade led to improved corporate facilities, new seating and other spectator facilities to bring the venue up to NRL standard.
Prior to the 2004 Federal Election, Jubilee Oval gained $8 million from the Howard Government that allowed a new program of enhancements to take place including the installation of 6,235 new seats and state-of-the-art lighting. That development increased the total capacity up to 20,541. The venue received yet another upgrade during the 2008 season which included an extension to the northern grandstand and the grandstand was further exdended in 2011. Oki and WIN previously held the naming-rights to the ground but as of 2015 the name has reverted to Jubilee Oval.
