Deliveries from external caterers will not be permitted into the Stadium.

Items which, in the opinion of Stadium management, have the potential to cause injury or a nuisance or inconvenience to any other person will not be permitted into the Stadium. These include controlled, dangerous or illegal substances, cans, bottles, flares, fireworks, laser pointers, loud hailers and weapons of any description and may include certain musical instruments, flags and flagpoles and any other items considered by Stadium management to have the potential to cause injury or a nuisance or inconvenience to any other person.

Cameras (including digital cameras), audio and video recorders may only be brought into the Stadium at the discretion of Stadium management.

Patrons are not permitted to transmit, broadcast, sell, license or otherwise publish, disseminate or reproduce any recordings (including, without limitation, photographic, video or sound recordings) of the event or match without the prior written approval of Stadium management. Such recordings may be confiscated or erased. Any recordings or recording devices which are confiscated will become the property of the Owner.

Patrons acknowledge that the Owner or the Hirer may use a Patron's image or likeness as part of any recording of the event or match.

Umbrellas are permitted in the Stadium but must not be opened or raised so as to obstruct the views of patrons in the seating areas or concourses at any time.

Large items that cannot be stowed away under a patron’s seat or which pose a capacity or safety issue (such as Eskies, prams, pushers, bags and other belongings) must be cloaked at the nearest gate or match office. All care is taken for the items, however no responsibility is  taken for items that may have been damaged or lost. Patrons cloaking items will be issued with a ticket that they are required to present when collecting their items on their departure from the venue

Patrons assume all risk of any damage or loss (including property damage, personal injury, economic and consequential loss) however it arises at the Stadium. Patrons bring personal effects onto the premises at their own risk. Neither the Owner nor the Hirer will be responsible for any damage to or loss or theft of a customer’s personal property.

Under the Tobacco and Other Smoking Products Act 1998 (Qld) smoking is prohibited in all areas of the Stadium and its precincts. Patrons who smoke in the Stadium:

(a) commit an offence against the Act, to which fines apply; and

(b) may be immediately evicted from the Stadium.

Patrons with tickets purchased at a concessional price must have available on entry into the Stadium proof of age or other documents justifying such concession.

Patrons may not be admitted if their tickets are damaged or defaced or their tickets have not been purchased from an authorised ticket agent.

Ticket Scalping - patrons who have purchased tickets in a manner which in any way breaches section 30C of the Major Sports Facilities Act 2001 (Qld) may be refused entry to the stadium.

The event or match may be cancelled, delayed or stopped due to dangerous situations, adverse weather or for any other cause beyond the Stadium management's control. Patrons may make a claim to the Hirer only for a replacement ticket if an event or match is rescheduled or for a refund of the appropriate amount of the face price of the ticket if the event is cancelled and not rescheduled.

Persons under 12 years of age will not be permitted entry unless under the direct supervision of an adult 18 years of age or over.

The Hirer may add, withdraw or substitute competitors, teams or artists and/or vary advertised material, programmes, prices, seating arrangements, audience capacity, the venue or programme times without liability to the Hirer or to the Owner.

1300SMILES Stadium management acknowledges that banners and flags are part of the atmosphere that is created as part of events held at the stadium.

Given this fact, the venue permits flags and banners to be brought into the venue and waved during appropriate times during the match.

Banners are permitted entry and can be used inside the venue under the following conditions:

  • The banner has no language on it that could be deemed offensive to other patrons or players. (Items include offensive racial, sexual, political, and personal statements. Conflicting hirer or venue sponsor banners are also deemed to be unacceptable.)
  • The banners must not hinder other patrons' enjoyment of the event through obstruction of their view of the field of play or video replay screen. The banner cannot cover any existing venue advertising or directional signage.
