Populous has designed a new boutique 9,000-seat stadium and training facility for the Brisbane Lions of the Australian Football League (AFL) and AFL Women’s (AFLW). Brighton Homes Arena will be located about 19 miles south of Brisbane in Springfield.

The new complex will feature a purpose-built training area with an indoor field, a gymnasium, a swimming pool, and community spaces. An administrative center with meeting rooms, an auditorium, and a cafe are included as elements to help provide new revenue streams for the Brisbane Lions club. Additionally, the site will incorporate adjoining community football fields for public use.

The training facilities will cater to all levels from elite athletes to junior teams, promoting the development of talent across all ages. With an increase in popularity of girls and women playing AFL, Brighton Homes Arena will provide opportunities for growing generations of AFLW players and supporters.
