Home ground[edit]

Clive Berghofer Stadium is a rectangular football stadium in Toowoomba, Queensland. Situated on Mary Street on the eastern fringes of Toowoomba CBD adjacent to Queens Park and Toowoomba East State School. Formerly known as Athletic Oval, the stadium was renamed to reflect the home club's major sponsor, philanthropist property developer and former local Mayor Clive Berghofer. The ground plays host to rugby league, rugby union and football fixtures[1] and is lit to A-League standard. The recently upgraded grandstand includes undercover seating for 2,300.[2] The stadium has hosted international and national rugby league matches as well pre-season A-League fixtures.
