Perry Park redevelopment

Brisbane Strikers have pulled out of the race to join the A-League, meaning the immediate redevelopment of Perry Park has been scrapped.

Some 15 teams are in the running to join the national competition as it expands from 10 to 12 teams in time for the 2019/20 season, however the former NSL club has decided to no longer push for inclusion. Queensland has remaining bids for Brisbane City, Ipswich Pride and Gold Coast United.

The redevelopment of Perry Park would have converted the outdated venue into a modern 15,000-capacity stadium.

Brisbane is in need of a smaller boutique stadium with the 52,000-seat Suncorp Stadium often less than half-full for many events including Brisbane Roar A-League matches.

Another option is Ballymore Stadium with other expansion prospect Brisbane City wishing to redevelop the former Queensland Reds home ground.
