North Queensland Stadium

North Queensland Stadium (commercially known as Queensland Country Bank Stadium) is a new 25,000-capacity stadium currently being constructed in Townsville to serve as the new home ground of the North Queensland Cowboys. The centrally located, best-purpose, multi-purpose venue is due to be completed in time for the 2020 NRL season. The official opening will be an Elton John concert on 29 February, 2020.

The new stadium is being constructed on an abandoned industrial site at Monkey Island, just south of the city’s strict centre. It will be connected with more populated west bank of Ross Creek with three existing bridges and a two new pedestrian bridges. Cox Architecture’s concept was selected for implementation. The signature feature is semi-open roof resembling the leaf of a Pandanus tree. It will cover 80% of spectators and would withstand cyclonic winds if necessary.

Double-tiered stands for 25,000 are expandable to 30,000. Initial layout includes a very modest north end as the stadium opens towards the city centre northwards. This way fans will be able to see the city while inside. A separate grassed terrace outside the stadium and beautifully landscaped surroundings might become a new meeting point on a more frequent basis, also offering great view of the city.

Its inaugural naming-rights sponsor was announced in December 2019, with the new stadium to be known as Queensland Country Bank Stadium in a six-year deal. The name may also be shortened to QCB Stadium.
