Development begins on new Springfield Stadium - 740 ongoing jobs when it is operational

Posted: 22nd Aug

Almost 1000 jobs will be created through the construction of the southeast’s newest sporting stadium.

Development on the $70 million Springfield Stadium, dubbed The Reserve, has started.

Preparatory earthworks have kicked-off and there are plans to start early earth works on the arena site this week, Brisbane Lions Infrastructure general manager Jake Anson said.

The Courier Mail can reveal 242 jobs will be created during construction and 740 ongoing jobs when it is operational, according to an independent report by Urbis.

The 10,000-seat stadium will host AFL Women’s matches from the 2022 season.

“We are presently undertaking a process of appointing a construction contractor having completed a select tender expression of interest process,” Mr Anson said.

He said detailed design work on the arena and Lions’ training centre would continue until October.
