Suncorp Stadium rivals the best football stadiums in the world in catering for patrons with disabilities.
The key facilities at Suncorp Stadium include:
- 228 wheelchair positions (with generous seat widths);
- 228 escort seats;
- 312 enhanced amenity seats (with moveable arms);
- level walkways except for some low angle ramps;
- minimum edges or steps;
- equitable distribution of wheelchair positions around the stadium;
- wheelchair accessible entries and exits and phone and counter heights;
- manned lifts; and
- five wheelchair access gates.
Patrons with a disability can access the Stadium via public transport.
Brisbane Transport runs shuttle bus services between the city, including Roma Street Station, and major suburban centres. From all destinations, at least one-third of the shuttle buses have low floor, wheelchair accessible buses.
Patrons in wheelchairs or with a walking disability can use Citytrain services to and from Roma Street Station. From Roma Street they can connect with a shuttle bus directly to and from the Stadium.
Patrons can access lifts from the station platform to the subway and a ramp from the Roma Street Transit Centre to street level where shuttle buses will be available.
Staff are on hand at the Station to assist in boarding the buses. Patrons with a disability should call Transinfo on 13 12 30 should they require assistance with making the train to bus transfer at Roma Street.
On arrival at Suncorp Stadium bus station, staff assist patrons to access the bus station lift.
Maxi-taxi and car drop offs
There are two set-down and pick-up zones, suitable for maxi-taxis and cars carrying people with a disability. These are located at Castlemaine Street (between Cordova Street and Heussler Terrace) and Caxton Steet (between Hale Street and Castlemaine Street).
Maxi-taxis can also use the taxi rank in Castlemaine Street near Caxton Street.
After events, up to 10 vehicles, including maxi-taxis, are able to wait in these zones for people with disabilities exiting the Stadium.
Car parking for patrons with a disability
On event days, a car parking zone at Castlemaine and Cordova Streets is available for the holders of Queensland Blue Disability Parking Permits and Australian Disability Parking Permits. There are limited spaces available so BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL.
Staff are positioned in Cordova, Castlemaine and Chippendall Streets to then assist patrons with a disability to gain access to the Stadium.
Please call the Stadium on 07 3331 5000 during business hours to book a space or for further information.
