Queensland Sport and Athletic Centre

QSAC Main Stadium

The Queensland Sport and Athletic Centre (QSAC), originally known as Queen Elizabeth II Stadium (QEII Stadium) and more recently ANZ Stadium, was originally built for the 1982 Brisbane Commonwealth Games and is the former home of the Brisbane Broncos. The stadium is now used for international, national and local athletics and some football matches. The record crowd set at the stadium was 58,593 for a Broncos home game.

QSAC Main Stadium

The Stadium consists of two large grandstands on either side of the playing field and several stands forming a semi circle at both ends, with a total capacity of just under 50,000. Also situated in the sports complex is a second athletics track which includes a small grandstand. After the 1982 Commonwealth Games, the athletics track was ripped up, however in 2001, a new track was installed to cater for the 2001 Goodwill Games which were held at the stadium. Tennis has also been played at the stadium, with the Davis Cup being played two times, with a temporary court laid down at one end of the stadium, and temporary stands installed on three sides of the court to enable a capacity of around 15,000. While QSAC doesn't play host to many major events these days, it is the home of a number of sporting bodies including Queensland Athletics and also plays host to soccer, motorcross and concerts.
