Suncorp Stadium is set to welcome a capacity crowd of 52,500 for next week’s State of Origin decider after Queensland authorities lifted COVID restrictions for outdoor arenas.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced earlier today (Friday) that open-air stadiums with a COVID Safe Plan will be able to operate at 100-per-cent capacity from next Tuesday.

That means Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane will be able to increase its seated capacity from the previous maximum of 75 per cent up to 100 per cent for next Wednesday’s match between Queensland and New South Wales.
