he Brisbane Lions have announced the construction of a new $70 million training and administration facility, named Brighton Homes Arena.

Located in Springfield, the arena will be the new home of the Lion’s AFLW side, and will allow for broadcasting of major live events through media infrastructure, as well being the new training centre for the men’s AFL side.

The project came together through a $20 million contribution from the Ipswich City Council, $18 million from the Queensland Government and $15 million from the Australian Government, as well as matching investments from the Lions and the AFL.

The arena could potentially offer amenities for up to 10 000 spectators as well as grandstand seating for 600 fans, including disabled seating, permanent shade and recreational facilities open year-round for the public.

Speaking on the announcement, Brisbane Lions chairman, Andrew Wellington, said the arena would be a great benefit to both the club and the community.

“To have the one home for all our players, coaches, support and administration staff will be a huge boost for the club,” Wellington said.

“In Brighton Homes we have found a partner who shares our ambitions to grow and be successful and is passionate about being connected to the communities they are part of.

“For our premiership winning AFLW players to finally have a dedicated home ground and training base hey can call their own is fantastic.

“We’re also proud of the role Brighton Homes Arena will play in promoting and supporting the growth in our sport throughout the Ipswich region,” he said.

The project is due for completion in September 2022.
