The Reserve 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 will be the first in Australia to provide equal elite training facilities for professional men’s and women’s teams.

The Reserve will include 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.

The Reserve will also help foster the next generation of footballers in Queensland, through our Club’s Hyundai Help for Kids 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.
