Our Oval

Iconic North Hobart Oval

The North Hobart Football Club has the privilege of playing on the most iconic oval in Tasmania’s football history. The famous and much-loved North Hobart Oval is just north of the Hobart CBD.

The first match at the ground was played on 6 May 1922 between Lefroy and New Town in front of 1000 people.

A total of 74 Tasmanian Football League Grand Finals along with various State games in the Australian Football Carnivals have been held at the ground.

North Hobart Oval has hosted three National Football Carnivals; in 1924, 1947 and 1966.

It holds the record for the largest attendance at a football match in Tasmania when 24,968 people crammed into the ground to watch the 1979 TFL grand final between Clarence and Glenorchy.

On June 24, 1990, 18, 653 people flocked to North Hobart Oval for one of Tasmanian Football’s greatest days. For just the second time in our history and thirty years after our first win over Victoria we beat the Big V again with Tassie, roared on by the delirious home crowd, racing away in the last quarter for a famous 33 point win.

Our Facilities

Clubrooms and function facilities

You get a sense of the famous and proud history of the North Hobart Football Club when you walk in to our club rooms. The clubrooms are like a museum, capturing the essence of our great club that has been in existence since 1881. We utilise the Doug Plaister stand at the Letitia Street end for corporate boxes and president’s lunches on match days. This provides an opportunity to view matches in style and warmth.

Change rooms

The club now has its change rooms in the Plaister Stand which has been upgraded.

All six change rooms at the ground will also soon be upgraded to make them suitable for women’s football.

The ground will host the first ever AFLW match for the Tassie Kangaroos on February 3, 2019 when they take on Carlton.

North Hobart Gym

The club gym, situated in the Gorringe Stand, is being upgraded to ensure our players have an elite functional training facility. New equipment has been bought, more equipment is to come and more space will be also be created in the gym.
