The A-League season has commenced and Brisbane Roar's first home game drew a near sell-out crowd through the gates and onto the Redcliffe Peninsula.
Shane Newcombe, Moreton Bay Region Industry & Tourism (MBRIT) CEO, says the move will bring tens of thousands of new visitors and economic boosts to the region each month.
“An organisation such as Brisbane Roar moving to the region demonstrates not only that we have world-class sporting infrastructure and facilities available, but that our region’s economy and residents are ready to support these initiatives,” Mr Newcombe says.
In a message to members, the club said it would be playing its A-League fixtures at Dolphin Stadium for the coming season along with a number of W-League Matches either as double headers or standalone fixtures.
“The club makes these decisions after taking into account the current economic climate as well as ensuring the Club can best serve its players, coaches, staff, sponsors, and most importantly, our dedicated members and fans across Queensland, Australia and internationally,” the club said.
“Brisbane Roar will always be a team for all of Queensland no matter if you live in the north, south, east or west of our great state, or you’re among the 100s of thousands of supporters across Australia and around the world.”
Local businesses can expect thousands of visitors travelling to the Redcliffe Peninsula for every home game, bringing additional opportunities for business.
