Accessibility

 

Suncorp Stadium has always placed great importance on providing services and facilities for patrons with disabilities. The venue rivals the best football stadiums in the world in catering for patrons with a disability.

 

To view the location of accessibility seats, toilets and lifts, please view our Accessibility Map.

Suncorp Stadium has worked with Autism Spectrum Australia to develop a Visual Story to help prepare people coming to the venue particularly for those who haven't attended before.

BUS SERVICES

Transport for Brisbane (TfB) provides dedicated shuttle bus services between the city (Ann St, opposite Central Station) and major suburban centres. TfB bus fleet is 100% wheelchair accessible. Bus Route Map

On arrival at Suncorp Stadium bus station, customer service officers are available to assist patrons to access the bus station lift to the Southern Plaza (Milton Road end). 

RAIL SERVICES

Patrons in wheelchairs or with a walking disability can use Citytrain services to and from Central Station and proceed to Anzac Square on Ann Street to connect with a shuttle bus directly to and from the Stadium.

Patrons with a disability should call Translink on 13 12 30 should they require assistance with making the train to bus transfer.

MAXI-TAXI AND CAR DROP OFFS

There are two set-down and pick-up zones, suitable for maxi-taxis and cars carrying people with a disability. These are located at Castlemaine Street (near Chippendall Street) and Caxton Steet (between Hale Street and Castlemaine Street). Maxi-taxis can also use the taxi rank in Castlemaine Street near Caxton Street.

After events, up to 10 vehicles, including maxi-taxis, are able to wait in these zones for people with disabilities exiting the Stadium.

To view the location of the PWD pick up and drop off points, please visit the Suncorp Stadium Seating Map.
 

On event days, a limited amount of parking is available on Castlemaine and Cordova Streets for the holders of Queensland Disability Parking Permits and Australian Disability Parking Permits. Staff are positioned in Cordova, Castlemaine and Chippendall Streets to then assist patrons with a disability to gain access to the Stadium. An accessibility ticket to an event does not guarantee a parking space at the Stadium

Due to the limited amount of spaces available, the venue runs a lottery to ensure everyone has a chance to access these spaces.

Patrons with Queensland Disability Parking Permits and Australian Disability Parking Permits can enter the lottery and entrants will be notified the week before an event whether or not they have been successful in securing a park.

The sunflower program has been introduced at Suncorp Stadium.

The sunflower is a globally recognised symbol for non-visible disabilities, also known as hidden disabilities or invisible disabilities. Patrons may choose to wear a lanyard throughout an event to discreetly identify to venue staff that they may need extra help, time or guidance.

If you need additional assistance, please approach one of the staff who have a Sunflower lanyard or pin. If you don’t have a Sunflower lanyard, a free lanyard can be collected from staff at the information stands and corporate entrances.
