Roar to pass home attendance milestone


Brisbane Roar will pass the two million mark for Hyundai A-League regular season home games at Suncorp Stadium tonight.

To date, 1,991,248 fans have attended 146 regular season Roar games since the formation of the Hyundai A-League in 2005.

A further 226,662 fans have attended six finals games, including three unforgettable grand final wins in front of packed Suncorp Stadium crowds.

One of those grand final wins was a stellar, come-from-behind victory against tonight’s opponent, the Western Sydney Wanderers.  

Come on Brisbane, be part of history tonight at our Pre-Christmas clash against the Wanderers.  Let’s celebrate this milestone with another win. Tickets can be purchased HERE
