    Meet Stadium Queensland’s new board

    A new era for Stadiums Queensland is on the horizon as a new board is appointed to take the reins of Queensland’s world class sporting venues.

    Minister for Sport Mick de Brenni said the handpicked board brings with them a new mix of talent to implement any approved findings of the Stadiums Taskforce.

    “Queenslanders own world renowned stadiums and we owe it to sports fans to ensure they get the most out of them,” Minister de Brenni said.

    “We’ve selected a Board that brings with them decades of experience across sports administration, asset and stakeholder management and market development.

    “This is exactly what is needed to modernise the operation of this significant publicly owned infrastructure portfolio.

    “It’s important that our stadiums offer opportunities for Queenslanders to see the very best in state, national and international events.

    "These assets belong to Queenslanders, and I want to make them work for all of Queensland.”

    “I also want to acknowledge the service of the previous Board but in particular the dedication displayed by Chair Sophie Devitt who has agreed to continue as Chair to transition in the new Board before stepping down - a demonstration of capability in leadership.

    Stadiums Queensland manages, operates and promotes the use of nine major facilities, including The Gabba, Suncorp Stadium, Metricon and CBUS Super Stadium on behalf of the Queensland Government.

    The new board members are:

    Sophie Devitt (Chair - transition)

    Cathy McGuane

    Therese Smith

    Amanda Shircore

    John Grant

    Gregg Webb
