Palmerston Oval launch 


A strong crowd turned out to celebrate the launch of the Palmerston Magpies Football Club’s new home ground at Charles Darwin University’s Palmerston Campus on Sunday (22 October).

The Minister for Sport and Recreation, the Hon. Kon Vatskalis, officially opened the oval and congratulated Charles Darwin University on the oval’s design and construction.

CDU’s Dr Scott Snyder, Executive Director of Corporate Services, said that the University is looking forward to ‘a long relationship with the Magpies and continued and expanded involvement with the community of Palmerston’.

The launch was followed by the first game for the Magpies on their new home ground.
