Project Scope 

The project will see the Gabba redeveloped to a standard that would allow it to become the main venue for the 2032 Brisbane Olympic and Paralympic Games, hosting Opening and Closing Ceremonies and Athletics events.

The redevelopment would see the seating capacity increase from 42,000 to 50, 000. The site would be linked to the Woolloongabba Station precinct, being developed through the Cross River Rail project via a new pedestrian plaza. The Gabba would join other proposed Olympic venues in Cairns, Townsville, the Sunshine Coast, and the Gold Coast.

The project is contingent on Brisbane's bid for the 2032 games being successful. Brisbane's bid is currently at the preferred bidder stage.
