Rugby games

Queensland is home to the North Queensland Cowboys, Brisbane Broncos, Gold Coast Titans, and the Queensland Reds and we love our Rugby League and Rugby Union. Games are hosted across the state with the finals and cup matches held at the Metricon Stadium on the Gold Coast or in Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium, which is also home to the annual Brisbane Global Rugby Tens tournament.

When it comes to cricket, the best of best descends on Queensland and grace the cricket grounds of The Gabba every year. And following close behind, is their army of supporters and fans who create an infectious atmosphere. If you've never been to the cricket before, grab a ticket and flaunt your best costume.

Queenslands first grade teams are the Brisbane Lions and the Gold Coast Suns. Games are hosted at The Gabba in Brisbane or at the Metricon Stadium or the Carrara Stadium on the Gold Coast. Catch the electric action and watch as the stadium comes to life with a roaring crowd.

Soccer

Home to the Brisbane Roar, you can catch home games at Suncorp Stadium and watch Queensland's best players take on national and international soccer teams.
