PART ONE in our new five part series, “Better Know a Brisbane Home Team!”

Tonight’s Home Team: The Brisbane Roar!

Brisbane’s very own soccer team, the Brisbane Roar, plays at the brand new Suncorp Stadium right outside the downtown area. A short walk from the West End, we headed over Saturday night to see the opening game of the soccer league’s third season. Tickets were only $15, and the beer literally came out of a conveyor belt – it felt like a Ford assembly line. Brisbane was playing the team from Adelaide, and ultimately tied with a final score of 2-2. It was great fun for the whole family (lots of kids there), and I took some poor video of the event.

The video includes a number of disappointing moments, a few missed goals, angry comments from British/Australian fans, and then finally the celebration for a Brisbane goal not captured on camera. Stay tuned for PARTS TWO, THREE, FOUR, AND FIVE...
