Brisbane’s Gabba is set to receive a $1 billion refurbishment pending whether the city wins the 2032 Olympic Games.
Sky News host Peter Gleeson said July 22 is “D-Day for the Queensland bid” and the state is currently in “targeted dialogue status”.
“That means that the International Olympic Committee are only talking to Queensland right now so we’re in the box seat”.
“The Gabba announced yesterday as the likely, well in fact the place where we will have the opening and closing ceremony”.
“One billion dollars, the structure as we know it now would be demolished and it would make way for this 50,000 seat stadium, it would completely transform that whole Gabba precinct.”
