Lang Park, also known as Brisbane Football Stadium, by the sponsored name Suncorp Stadium, and nicknamed: 'The Cauldron', is a multi-purpose stadium in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, located in the suburb of Milton. The current facility comprises a three-tiered rectangular sporting stadium with a capacity of 52,500 people. The traditional home of rugby league in Brisbane, the modern stadium is also now used for rugby union and football and has a rectangular playing field of 136 by 82 metres (446 by 269 ft). The stadium’s major tenants are the Brisbane Broncos, Queensland Maroons and Queensland Reds.
Lang Park was established in 1914, on the site of the former North Brisbane Cemetery, and in its early days was home to a number of different sports, including cycling, athletics, and soccer. The lease of the park was taken over by the Brisbane Rugby League in 1957 and it became the home of the game in Queensland (remaining so to this day). It has also been the home ground of major rugby union and soccer matches in Queensland since its modern redevelopment, including the Queensland Reds and the Brisbane Roar, and some Wallabies and Socceroos matches. It hosted the 2008 and 2017 Rugby League World Cup Finals, and the 2021 NRL Grand Final. In addition to this, the ground hosted Rugby World Cup quarter finals and two Super Rugby grand finals, with the Queensland Reds winning on both occasions. The venue will host several matches for the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup including the third-place match as well as the soccer tournament at the 2032 Summer Olympics, including the gold medal matches in both the men's and women's events.

Always a great stadium. One of the countries best. Usual wait for food and drinks but quicker than others. Sound for gigs is great, no matter where you are. Staff and security are always helpful (if you show them respect). Transport in can be crowded so recommend coming in early and having a drink in Caxton Street.

If you want to see famous bands and performers who come through Brisbane, Suncorp Stadium is the place to be. Coupled with State of the Origin, this venue is legendary. Easy to find seats, great layout, and close to Caxton Street. I love the evening vibes of walking down Caxton in the road on the way to an event, crowds of people, laughter, beers, sun setting.. My favourite show was Paul McCartney. That or seeing the Hornet beat Pacquiao.

There for State of Origin which is the busiest night of the Rugby League calendar. The stadium has great access with walking being the best option from the main bus/train/ferry locations. The seats are located close to the grounds, so even seats that seem to be in the 'nose-bleed' area still have great viewing options. You are limited to none branded food or drink options as you enter through the security and the food service within the stadium is very mass produced. It is a great experience, but the prices have made it prohibited for a family during these 'big' events. The regular season is a better option.

Top stadium. Easy in, easy out. It's a bit of walk from the nearest 2 train stations (more so from Roma st) but still less than 1km, the buses run right into/under the stadium. Either way there are plenty of train and bus services on game days. Food and drink isn't too expensive but not cheap either. There is always plenty of security and ushers to help find your seat. Everyone loves game day at Suncorp. As an added bonus it's very close to the city center and there a plenty of venues to visit before and after the game, especially on Caxton st / Given tce.

Best ball sports stadium that I've been to. The crowd are almost on top of the players, they are that close. Easy to get to, a short walk from the station. For and drink are pricey, but not the worst by far. Highly recommended if you like watching rugby, league, soccer etc.

Well signed entry and exit systems. Good staff which is not always the case at these larger venues. An absolute nightmare to leave the area though when it's a sold out event. Taxi rank service is badly lacking and although they try to alleviate the situation with buses it always turns out to be a mega disappointment. Best if you are on foot to be picked up by a friend a block away at office works car park or the like because it is madness trying to get transport. Uber or otherwise. Lots of times the train will fail you too.

Suncorp Stadium is on of the best equipped stadiums for sport in the world. With a 52,500 capacity, it has generous transport options deployed on event days that are included in the cost of tickets. Plenty of options onsite for patrons for food and drink, but expect to pay inflated pricing as you would at any stadium. Majority of seats provide great view to field of play.

Suncorp Stadium is renowned as Australia's Premier rectangular sporting facility and plays host to the Brisbane Broncos, Queensland Reds, Brisbane Roar, State of Origin, Rugby Union Tests, Rugby League and Football Internationals and Concerts. A tour of this historic site will provide you with the ultimate opportunity to learn about the Stadium, from its days as a cemetery, through its time as Lang Park and on to the redevelopment into the world-class facility in its current form. All tour participants will gain an insight into what it takes to stage a top sporting event and gain access to areas usually the domain of Stadium Members, media personalities and elite sportsmen.

Good stadium, food not bad (for a stadium), getting in is slow but out is pretty good. No parking so take public transport. You walk through a bar and restaurant area on the way which can be daunting for young children.

It's a nice place to enjoy with friends and family. The boxes are larger than others stadiums and the customer services are so amazing. It's possible make events, as wedding or birthday's party, on the restaurants inside the Stadium, but is necessary booking it. Great localization, near bus stops and rail station.

This is a fantastic ground. Not one bad seat in the stadium. Plenty of food and drinks. There is even gluten-free hot food which is good. The transport to and from the ground is on match day you cannot fault

Great Central Location in Brisbane. All amenities. Food is the usual high price at an event. Public transport is so easy and frequent. Highly recommend going to an event here. Great Security levels and very organised

One of Australia's greatest stadiums located in the heart of Paddington Brisbane perfect place for Rugby League Rugby Union or Soccer not a bad seat in any part of the stadium 2 very large digital screens at each end to view replays and live action fully licenced bars and food outlets throughout with clean amenities located not far from seating. People with disabilities are catered for with seating and elevators wheelchairs are seated at ground level. Free Bus transportation provided to from the game included in your ticket price. Excellent security with helpful friendly staffing in all parts of the stadium. We visited for State of Origin had an awesome time.

Excellent access via public transport. Large number of attentive and helpful staff. Most seats have excellent views. If needed you can ask to use lifts if aged or infirm. Security will check all bags. Restrictions apply to some items, professional cameras and food/drink.

It’s a stadium that is designed for you to take public transport to. If you really want to drive though; you can park at the cultural centre in Southbank and walk across the bridge, or park at The Barracks Shopping Centre (it definitely won’t be cheap). The stadium itself has everything you need when at an event/game. With toilet, food stations and staff members everywhere. They do bag searches at the gates. So if you want to get in quick, limit what you bring down to what will fit in your pockets. The stadium plays host to so many events that it is kind of hard to review it. The seating is designed to give you a quality view from where ever you sit within the stadium. Even the cheap seats (nosebleeds) are much better than sitting at home watching what you are there to see.

Have sat in most areas of this stadium and have never found a bad seat. Plenty of facilities which are kept in good condition. Food options are pretty good. Drink options are OK to average. Both food and drinks are becoming ridiculously expensive! Generally, I'd advise eating elsewhere and limiting drinks in the stadium. There are better, and cheaper, options outside. E.G. Try the Newstead Brewery across the road!

World Class stadium close to the city and entertainment precinct. Home to the Brisbane Broncos NRL Football Team. The surrounding area is full of intimate bars and restaurants. The atmosphere on game night is outstanding.
