NEW: Update Info for this Stadium >>

The Gabba is Brisbane’s premier oval sporting stadium and plays host to AFL (Brisbane Lions) and Cricket (Internationals, Queensland Bulls and Brisbane Heat). The 42,000-capacity venue is officially known as the Brisbane Cricket Ground but is most often referred to as the Gabba, named after the suburb of Woolloongabba, in which it is located.

The Gabba

The land on which the ground sits was first set aside for use as a cricket ground in 1895 and the first cricket match was held on the site on 19 December 1896, between Parliament and The Press. International Test cricket commenced at the Brisbane Cricket Ground on 27 November 1931, when Australia played South Africa. In the past, the ground has embraced bicycle racing and greyhound racing and is now the home of AFL in Queensland, with the Brisbane Lions calling the ground home. The Gabba is the home of Queensland Cricket with all test and one-day matches played at the venue, the Queensland Bulls and Brisbane Heat also call the ground home.

The Gabba

The venue’s facilities have been progressively renovated since 1993 with new bleachers, grandstands, lighting and two video scoreboards. The most recent development was the 24-bay grandstand filling in the area where the Brisbane Lions Australian Football Social Club once stood, completed in 2005, lifting the ground's seating capacity to 42,000. Total cost of the six-stage redevelopment was $128 million.

The Gabba hosted several Football matches during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games including the quarter-final between Brazil and Cameroon in front of 37,332 fans. Rugby League holds the attendance record at the venue with 47,096 people attending a 1954 Test Match between Australia and Great Britain. The highest cricket crowd is 39,874 for a one day international between Australia and South Africa in 2006 while the highest AFL crowd is 37,224 in 2005 for a match between Brisbane Lions and Collingwood.
