Suncorp Stadium's Return of Fans

Suncorp Stadium’s plan to return fans to the venue has been approved by the Queensland Health Authorities.
The plan incorporates:

  • Current social distancing practices;

  • Increased hand sanitiser availability for patrons and staff;

  • Socially distanced seating for patrons;

  • Frequent environmental cleaning and disinfectant and;

  • Establishment of zones to assist with social distancing and reducing congestion

Zones within the stadium will allow patrons to access bathrooms and food vendors without having to move around the Stadium reducing the amount of congestion and helping with any contact tracing should it be required.

In preparing their COVID-19 Safety plan, Suncorp Stadium has taken into account the guidance provided by the Queensland Government and Health Authorities.

Alan Graham General Manager of Suncorp Stadium said – “It’s great to see fans coming back to the footy at Suncorp Stadium. We’ve worked really hard on our plan to safely bring back patrons to watch events live at our Venue.

We’re really looking for the patrons who are attending to help us out by following directives of Stadium staff and buying-in to our COVID-19 Safety Plan procedures.

Small things like maintaining social distancing between groups, hand-hygiene and sitting only in the seats allocated to you are huge steps in helping us to provide a safe environment for everyone.”

Suncorp Stadium is managed by ASM Global (ASMG) on behalf of Stadiums Queensland allowing them to draw on VenueShield, the global program developed exclusively by ASMG to prepare its customised comprehensive plan for the reopening of the Stadium.

The first game with fans at Suncorp Stadium will be on Saturday June 20 when the Gold Coast Titans host the St George Illawarra Dragons in the NRL Telstra Premiership. Event Info here.


We are also asking all of our visitors to read and work with our Visitor Buy-In template.
