Plans to rebuild Gabba Stadium have been scrapped. 

But wait, what about a new stadium for the Olympic fanfare? Turns out, the government's put a pin in that balloon.

In bummer news, the plans to build a shiny new stadium at Victoria Park and rebuild Brisbane's iconic Gabba have been scrapped due to the high costs. 

According to Queensland Premier, Steven Miles "When Queenslanders are struggling with housing and other costs, I cannot justify to them spending $3.4 billion on a new stadium."

So, it's Lang Park that'll be throwing open its doors for the opening and closing ceremonies. 

So, gear up, Brisbane! With a mix of urban upgrades and a dash of sustainable charm, the city's set to sparkle on the global stage. The countdown to 2032 is on, and it's not just about the sports—it’s a celebration of Brisbane’s bold step into the future.
