North Ipswich Reserve presently known as Qld Group Stadium and formally Bendigo Bank Oval due to naming rights. It is based in Ipswich, Queensland and is home to the Ipswich Jets, who play in the Queensland Wizard Cup. On occasion the venue plays host to National Rugby League trial matches, most recently when the Sydney Roosters played the Jets.

In 2010 Brisbane Roar played an Ipswich invitation side made up of players from Ipswich Knights, Western Spirit FC and Ipswich City FC. Brisbane Roar also played Melbourne Victory in a pre-season game in 2013.[1]

Ipswich representative association football sides played the New Zealand All Whites at North Ipswich Reserve in 1922, and the Chinese national football team in 1923 [2]
