Brighton Homes Arena will be our AFLW team’s home ground and we are planning for VFL, Academy games and men’s practice matches to be played there. Our Club and the AFL have identified 20-25 major events that will be staged in Springfield annually.

The boutique arena will accommodate up to 10,000 spectators for major sports matches and community events. A grandstand, seating over 600 spectators, will include technical infrastructure to support the broadcasting of major events.

Pedestrian concourses, seating, shade and catering facilities will ensure that the facility meets the modern expectations of spectators in relation to comfort and disabled accessibility.

Community sports matches will be played on the main oval as scheduling permits, with infrastructure to support community use to be built underneath the grandstand. The arena will also be suitable to stage non-sporting events including festivals and community gatherings.

The arena is easily accessible in terms of transport, with Springfield Central railway station located 150 metres from the ground. A new multi-storey car park is under construction at a site adjacent to Brighton Homes Arena that will provide more than 1,000 car parks for rail commuters on weekdays and for attendees of major arena events.

Brighton Homes Arena is a state-of-the-art training and administration facility that will include a boutique arena which will seat 10,000 people.

We are proud that the facility is the first in Australia to provide equal elite training facilities for professional men’s and women’s teams.

Brighton Homes Arena features a 50m x 35m indoor training field and a high-performance gymnasium, which will be large enough to support AFL, AFLW and Academy team training sessions.

A lap pool and aquatic recovery pools will better assist the players in their recovery and advanced learning and teaching facilities will better enhance our athlete development programs.

Brighton Homes Arena will also help foster the next generation of footballers in Queensland, through the Brisbane Lions Academy. The program exposes junior players to industry coaches and staff and provides a pathway to forming a professional career in the AFL and AFLW competitions.

Academy enrolment has grown from 80 to 300 elite athletes over the past five years and the Clubs seeks to grow this to 580 athletes by 2021. 


A key feature of Brighton Homes Arena is its accessibility to the local community, with its expansive education and meeting space available to meet the needs of Lions members.

An auditorium and spaces to support meetings and conferences within Brighton Homes Arena will support an expansion of our community education and school curriculum programs, drawing upon experience gained by studying best-practice community outreach programs operating both within Australia and overseas.

Our partner, Multicultural Australia, an organisation which work towards making refugees, migrants and others feel welcome in the Queensland community will be based within the facility.

The Lions and Multicultural Australia have researched industry-leading programs at North Melbourne Football Club and GWS GIANTS and will use community spaces at Brighton Homes Arena to develop national elite programs to support social inclusion and migrant settlement in a uniquely Queensland environment.

Use of the meeting rooms, training facilities, auditorium and a digital media studio will enhance the capability of Multicultural Australia to settle new migrants and refugees

Community facilities within Brighton Home Arena will be used daily from early morning to late in the evening. There will also be capacity to host cultural festivals and events activating all the spaces in the precinct. A shared reception area will include a new Brisbane Lions membership and merchandise shop and a cafe? to provide a vibrant and culturally inclusive meeting place for the community.
