The St.George Bank Dragons have announced that Kogarah's Jubilee Stadium will host six Dragons' home games in 2007. It will be the first season since the formation of the St.George-Illawarra joint venture that Jubilee Stadium has hosted more than five matches.
While WIN Stadium has been allocated seven Dragons' games once again, the six NRL matches at Kogarah is positive news for the St.George District's paramount sporting facility, as Kogarah has at last gained something close to an equitable share of home games.
The six Kogarah matches are the following:
Round 2 - Knights - 23 March - OKI Jubilee Stadium (Friday, 7:30 pm) Round 5 - Storm - 14 April - OKI Jubilee Stadium (Saturday, 5:30 pm) Round 8 - Panthers - 4-7 May - OKI Jubilee Stadium Round 12 - Broncos - 1-4 June - OKI Jubilee Stadium Round 13 - Sharks - 8-11 June - OKI Jubilee Stadium Round 16 - Sea Eagles - 29 June - 2 July - OKI Jubilee Stadium
The Kogarah matches have been scheduled for early in the 2007 season to accommodate further redevelopment works so that the venue can be refurbished in time for the 2008 season.
Today was the last day where feedback could be received by Kogarah Council on Development Application 457/06. R2K representatives sent correspondence to Kogarah Council to support the extension of the existing grandstand northwards to replace the existing temporary seating and the extension of the grandstand south across the existing "Legends Slab". The feedback to Kogarah Council emphasised that the extension and upgrade of the existing grandstand is in the best interests of the Kogarah Municipality.
