SPORTENG supporter of the Queensland Cricket Foundation

Oct 04|NewsBy Solene Cathalan


The Allan Border Field, home of Queensland Cricket and training base for the Brisbane Heat, Queensland Bulls, Queensland Fire and the Australian Men’s and Women’s Teams, has recently undergone a redevelopment that has turned it into one of the world’s best cricket training facilities.

For the occasion, the Queensland Cricket Foundation collaborated with the Field by launching a fundraising campaign called "Buy a Picket", offering the opportunity to be part of the Field redevelopment’s legacy while supporting the future of cricket in Queensland through donations.  

By buying our own picket, SPORTENG is proud to be counted among the contributors of the Queensland Cricket Foundation’s campaign, and we can’t wait to see our name next to the names of past players, members, fans and the wider community who joined the cause and donated to the Foundation!  

This initiative reflects our commitment to challenging the status quo and our work in encouraging the development of respectful and inclusive sports environments and Fields of Play. 


The purpose of the Queensland Cricket Foundation is to [fundraise and invest in cricket initiatives that create positive differences in Queensland communities.] The Foundation [aims to give more opportunities for Queenslanders to support and participate in Australia’s favourite sport while enhancing the experiences of all existing participants, volunteers, and fans.] The Foundation supports four key pillars: indigenous health and well-being, female and all-inclusive programs and initiatives, infrastructure and facilities and supporting experiences for disadvantaged youth.

More about the Allan Border Field of Play redevelopment  

The Allan Border Field is home to all levels of cricket, from grassroots through to Queensland and Australia’s elite teams. The redevelopment included redeveloping the oval and expanding the footprint to the eastern side, revamping fan and off-field facilities, improving drainage, and terrace seating, installing an electric scoreboard, and broadcasting standard light towers.
These upgrades will come with the creation of five new training pitches (as part of the refurbishment of the Ray Lindwall Oval), as well as the expansion of the Allan Border Field centre block.
