Suncorp Stadium: Helpful hints on travelling to the home of Queensland NRL
Nestled in Milton, Suncorp Stadium is a 52,500+ seat state-of-the art venue.
Boasting international performances across a variety of events including rugby league, rugby union, soccer, extreme sports, boxing and concerts – there are few things that can match the electric atmosphere of a buzzing Suncorp Stadium.
The home of the mighty Broncos, Suncorp Stadium hosts a variety of events.
However, since 1957, Lang Park (as it was previously named) has been the headquarters for Queensland rugby league.
Like magic, the passion for NRL has permeated through the stadium, drawing in spectators that are spirited about their rugby league and inspiring players to deliver some of the best performances in their sporting careers.
NRL is so deeply entrenched in Australian culture that visiting Brisbane over NRL’s high season and not catching a game is a bit like coming to Australia and not tasting a lamington.
