Solar Mad is the first major sponsor of Griffith's oldest and most prominent sporting ground, EW Moore Oval. The sporting complex will be known as Solar Mad Stadium from mid 2018

through until at least 2023. Solar Mad is the first ever naming rights sponsor for the ground which was initially named after the local council’s shire clerk and, in more recent years, has been 

referred colloquially as the 'Dog Ground' after greyhound racing was held on the site for over 30 years until the mid-90’s. The sports precinct is owned and managed by The Griffith Leagues Club.


"The Griffith Leagues Club is taking a giant leap forward in partnering with a local company which shares the same core values and goals,” said Club Director, Tony Catanzariti at the time the sponsorship was announced. “Both parties are very excited to be working together for the next five years to further improve the facilities and bring bigger and better events to the newly named venue.”

Griffith Leagues Club expects this sponsorship agreement to help fund several improvements at the ground including a submission to the State Government to co-fund a state-of-the-art building on the northern side of the ground opposite the existing grandstand which will house new change rooms and hospitality facilities.

“This sponsorship continues our commitment to local sport and major community events which we’ve supported since we first started trading in 2009,” explains Solar Mad Director, Darren Maddison. “It also continues our great working relationship with Griffith Leagues Club who have been a customer of Solar Mad for some time.”

The family of EW Moore, some of whom still live in Griffith, were consulted about the sponsorship and Bob Moore, the son of EW Moore, is comfortable with the new arrangement. The existing signs acknowledging EW Moore remain in place and all parties are committed to moving forward in a manner respectful to the history of the ground.

The oval has supported not only Group 20 rugby league matches for more than 60 years, but more recently has hosted the local First Grade soccer competition and the representative squads of the Riverina Rhinos. It has also played host to some significant events such as Nitro Circus in March 2017 when over 5500 people packed into the stadium and the Raiders vs Storm pre-season NRL Match in 2015 which boasted an attendance of almost 4000 people.
