The cricket ground earned its name from its proximal location to Woolongabba. Just as the name suggests, the grounds are the venue for many international and local cricket matches. Interestingly, the grounds also host the Aussie Rules football matches. As home to the Queenslands Bulls, the renowned cricket team, and the glorious Brisbane Lions AFL team it is easy to see why the grounds are regarded highly by the locals.
Add to this the fact that sports is a popular activity in the city, and you are just beginning to scratch the surface of what it means to link up with Brisbane locals for their favorite matches. As one of the major sports and entertainment facilities managed by Stadiums Queensland, the grounds host events on a regular basis. Matches are scheduled months in advance, so you need to check the ground’s official website to schedule for any of the events.
