2023 will see the stadium play host to eight games of the FIFA Women’s World Cup - the third most matches of the tournament as well as headline entertainment events including Elton John, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Ed Sheeran.

The Queensland Government through Stadiums Queensland has re-appointed ASM Global as manager of Brisbane’s iconic Suncorp Stadium for a five-year period from 1st January 2023.

ASM Global Asia Pacific, with venues across Australia, New Zealand, the Asia Pacific and Middle East has managed Suncorp Stadium since its redevelopment in 2003. The management rights were awarded to ASM Global following a formal tender process.

ASM Global Asia Pacific Chairman and Chief Executive Harvey Lister AM said the company was honoured and very pleased to be re-appointed as venue manager, which he said reflected the Queensland’s Government’s continuing faith and trust in the company’s ability to manage the stadium to a world class standard.

From relatively humble but somewhat legendary beginnings, Suncorp Stadium, under the management of ASM Global, has developed into an internationally acknowledged venue that now boasts four anchor tenants as well as hosting world class sporting events including Australia’s State of Origin Series and Rugby World Tests, along with a glittering line-up of concert and entertainment events.

Since 2003 the venue has held some 750 events with more than 19 million fans in attendance and been recognised as one of the world’s leading venues. Suncorp Stadium was the only Australian operator and one of seven of the world’s biggest stadiums to be chosen as a finalist in the international Stadium Business Awards in Manchester in the UK in 2021. The stadium was also named ‘Best of Queensland Experience 2022’ from an impressive line-up of 4,700 venues.

2023 will see the stadium play host to eight games of the FIFA Women’s World Cup - the third most matches of the tournament as well as headline entertainment events including Elton John, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Ed Sheeran.

Suncorp Stadium General Manager, Alan Graham paid tribute to the outstanding work of the Stadium Management Team who has been at the coal face creating and delivering world class sporting and entertainment events for the people of Queensland.

“It is also fortunate that we are part of a world-wide network in ASM Global which has assisted us in continuing to take advantage of the latest innovations and cutting-edge technology ensuring the Suncorp Stadium team remains amongst the most elite in the world,” he said.

Harvey Lister acknowledged the support and cooperation of Queensland’s Minister for Tourism, Innovation and Sport and Minister Assisting the Premier on Olympics and Paralympics Sport and Engagement, Stirling Hinchliffe, and Stadiums Queensland as the owner of the venue and the continuing loyalty and commitment of stadium clients and anchor tenants.
