$27.4 Million BMX Facility & Football Centre – South Pine Sports Complex, Brendale


A BMX precinct is near completion and a football centre of excellence will add to the existing sports available at the South Pine Sports Complex facility, located at 620 South Pine Road, Brendale.

A new world-class urban course costing approximately $5.4 million will enable Moreton Bay to host national and international level competitions. Morton Bay Regional Council have sought to provide a future tourism asset and Olympic Games venue, with BMX debut at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Peter Flannery, Mayor outlined that this will kickstart Council’s 10-year journey toward the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

“Logan from Logan won Olympic gold in the inaugural BMX freestyle competition at the Tokyo Games this year after he built a skate park in his own backyard”.

“Now Moreton Bay is building an international competition standard BMX racetrack at Nolan Park that will hopefully produce Australia’s first gold medallist in that discipline”.

The Council announced that a new $22 million football centre of excellence will be built at South Pine Sports Complex, which will be to a standard to hold World Cup soccer matches. The Brisbane Roar’s junior academy and women’s team will use the ground and will be constructed in time for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Peter Flannery, Mayor outlined that, the significant interest from FIFA to host an international team has been already received.

“It’s important that our youth have the best facilities in the country that will allow them to dare to dream of representing Australia one day.

“We are the third largest Council in Australia and one of the fastest growing, so there’s no reason why we can’t be a sporting powerhouse”.

“I also want to ensure that Moreton Bay residents have the best lifestyle in the country by providing as many options as possible for sports and recreation and protecting our amazing way of life”.

“The BMX racetrack and clubhouse project has been made possible thanks to $1.5 million COVID stimulus from the State Government, while the Federal Government has contributed $500,000 to the South Pine Sports Complex upgrades”.

“I’d like to thank both levels of government for their help to make these projects a reality so the community can thrive as we prepare for 2032.”
