The area on which the stadium sits used to belong to the Aboriginal Turrbal Yuggara people and became one of the earliest European settlement areas in Brisbane. The stadium was built following public pressure, as locals wished to see more recreational facilities in the area. The 6.2 hectares’ site of Lang Park evolved into Suncorp Stadium. Today, it hosts tens of thousands of Australians and International visitors who wish to experience some of the best sporting events and concerts in the country.
