In a historic move for Brisbane Roar, the club will host a Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League double header at Suncorp Stadium for the first time in January 2014.

As the Brisbane Roar W-League side prepares for this weekend-s season opener against Canberra United, the team has been boosted by the news that their Round 10 clash against Western Sydney Wanderers has been moved to Suncorp Stadium.

Kicking off at 4pm, the Westfield W-League match will precede the Hyundai A-League fixture between Brisbane Roar and Wellington Phoenix at 7pm on the last Friday of Queensland school holidays.

“Bringing the W-League squad in-house this year has allowed us to explore avenues we haven-t previously been able to,” Managing Director Sean Dobson said.

“It was a high priority of the club-s to give the W-League team a match at Suncorp Stadium and we-re pleased we-ve been able to make this happen in January.”

Supporters who have already purchased a ticket to the Hyundai A-League match between the Roar and the Phoenix will receive free entry to the Westfield W-League fixture.

All Brisbane Roar members will also receive free entry to the Westfield W-League match. Brisbane Roar W-League memberships are still available for purchase here.
