Brisbane Lions, Chief Executive Officer, Greg Swann:

"It’s pleasing this process is finally moving forward and the Government supports the RNA option as a displacement solution for the Lions.

"Naturally, a displacement of four or more years represents a major upheaval to the Lions as a club, our fans and members, and we need to ensure we’re as strong as possible to return to the Gabba when it is complete. 

"As the Government has said, today is a starting point, and there is a lot of detail to work through. 

“We will continue dialogue with Government and other stakeholders regarding progressing the RNA as quickly as possible to ensure the project can be funded and the Club is supported through displacement."
