KGV is home to the Glenorchy Knights and Hobart Zebras football clubs who play home matches in the NPL Tasmania and lower grades at the ground.

It is also used for all major football matches played in the South of Tasmania, including Statewide Cup Finals and Statewide Finals Series Matches.

In 2010, A-League side Central Coast Mariners played a Tasmanian representative side in front of a crowd of around 2,000 people.[1]


In December 2012 KGV Park was resurfaced with an artificial turf pitch. The new surface included Poligras synthetic grass and an in situ rubber shock pad was installed by Grassports Australia to FIFA 2 star standard.[2]
