Recently upgraded apache and php .. now I am getting the error :

Deprecated: Function ereg() is deprecated in /var/www/mywebsite/templates/sportopolis/index.php on line 70/74/78

My understanding is that this is due to the coding of the template based on an older version of php and the new errors in php 5.3 for E_DEPRECATED and E_USER_DEPRECATED.

Is there a fix for this other than dropping error reporting level that could leave a issue someplace else ?

It is not recommended that you use php 5.3. Joomla will not be fully supporting 5.3 until 1.6 is stable. So there may be other functions of Joomla and third party extensions that will not work with 5.3
