Designs are well under way for the new Queensland Centre of Excellence in Women’s Football in Brendale which is planned to be open by 2023.
Construction work is expected to start within the next couple of months on the land beyond the two lower pitches with four new turf pitches and two new clubhouses.

Following the recent tragedy at Mitchelton where a spectator died after being hit by a scaffolding structure, ACE will be taking down the TV gantry at Wolter Park.
