Matchday Guide: Double header at Suncorp Stadium


We’ve got another huge Sunday at Suncorp Stadium coming your way!

Our Roar Women are back to defend their Westfield W-League Premiership & will open their season against a strong Perth Glory outfit to open their season.

Straight after, your Hyundai A-League side is back in action again, taking on Wellington Phoenix following last week’s entertaining performance against the Mariners.

It gets even better yet! We will be inviting everyone in attendance to join with fellow supporters, as well as our players & staff to take part in our traditional Whole of Club photo.

Two big milestones are also potentially on the cards this Sunday! Matt McKay is in line to become the first player to make 250 Hyundai A-League appearances for BRFC while Katrina Gorry is in contention for her 100th Westfield W-League appearance.
