The Queensland government has re-appointed ASM Global to manage Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium in Australia for a further five years.

ASM Global Asia Pacific, which runs venues across Australia, New Zealand, the Asia Pacific and Middle East, has managed Suncorp Stadium since its redevelopment in 2003.

ASM Global Asia Pacific chief Harvey Lister said the re-appointment reflected the government’s continuing faith and trust in the company’s ability to manage the stadium to a world class standard.

Since 2003 the venue has held some 750 events with more than 19 million fans in attendance.

Suncorp Stadium general manager Alan Graham said:

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.

Next year, the stadium plays 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.

ASM Global Asia Pacific chair and CEO Harvey Lister AM says the company is honoured to be re-appointed as venue manager, which he said reflected the Queensland’s Government’s continuing faith and trust in the firm’s ability to manage the stadium to a world class standard.

The 52,500-capacity stadium is currently allowed to host a maximum of six gigs per year but this could rise due to post Covid demand.
