The Gabba set to host largest crowd since start of pandemic

Queensland’s new stadium limit will be put to the test tonight, with a sell out crowd of 25,000 expected at the Gabba.

It’ll be one of the biggest crowds since the start of the pandemic.

It comes after stadium capacity limits were eased from 50 percent to 75 percent yesterday, in preparation for the AFL Grand Final.


A crowd of 30,000 is expected to pack the Gabba on October 24 for the historic event.

Tonight’s qualifying final between last year’s Premiers Richmond Tigers and the Brisbane Lions has now sold out.

Patrons will be forced into specific areas of the stadium, and encouraged to wear masks to and from the game to ensure Covid safe practices.
