New mural honours Aboriginal heritage and stadium history

Sports fans visiting Campbelltown Sports Stadium will now be greeted by an Acknowledgement of Country mural recognising the stadium’s place on Dharawal country and celebrating its storied history as the centre of elite sport in the city.

The mural, titled Past Present and Future, was created by local Aboriginal artist Rhonda Sampson and is located at the entrance to the stadium’s main stand.

Mayor George Brticevic said the mural was a welcoming new feature for the stadium.

“Fans attending Macarthur FC or Wests Tigers will now be greeted with this fantastic new artwork as they go to take their seats to watch our local teams play,” Cr Brticevic said.

“It is a fitting representation of Campbelltown Sports Stadium’s place in our modern history told through the perspective of a local Aboriginal artist,” he said.

The mural is part of a suite of new visual elements, including new signage, installed throughout the stadium over the past few months.
