Suncorp Stadium’s Restoration to duty was a significant shot in the arm for flood-ravaged Queensland, the Liberal National Party said today.

The iconic arena plays host to the A-League’s M1 Derby tomorrow (Saturday) night, between the table-topping Brisbane Roar and finals-bound Gold Coast United.

Shadow Minister for Sports and mad footy fan Jack Dempsey said although the flooding had caused extensive damage, plenty of hard work and a dose of that famous Queensland Spirit had got things back on track.

“I just want to congratulate everyone involved with Suncorp’s restoration weeks ahead of some forecasts.” Mr. Dempsey said.

“Even though the car-park and below-ground facilities will take longer to fix, the playing surface and spectator amenities are good to go.”

“It’s fantastic news. Seeing Suncorp under water was one of the indelible images of the floods and the reaction probably showed how much the place means to Queensland.” Mr. Dempsey said.

“The Roar has got their home ground back and the Queensland Reds and Brisbane Broncos can start their seasons unaffected, which must be a huge relief.”

“By the time State of Origin comes around, I reckon the only floodwater in the ground will be those Blues supporters crying about losing six series in a row.”

“It should be a great atmosphere on Saturday night. I hope they get a massive crowd.” Mr. Dempsey said.
