Stadium Security Highlights of 2018

September 27, 2018

With over 25 years of industry experience, CAP Security Services is a fixture within the Queensland event community. This year we’ve welcomed major sporting, music and cultural events to our fine state, and all attendees were able to enjoy themselves and feel safe in their environment due to the involvement of CAP Security Services. This month, we take a look back at some of the major stadium events our team has serviced so far in 2018.


The Gabba is having a busy year with their sporting partners! Many teams have taken to the field at The Gabba Stadium, including the Brisbane Lions, Queensland Bulls and Brisbane Heat. There has also been a variety of international competitions hosted on Queensland soil, bringing with them a range of attendees from all over the world! In 2018 The Gabba has been home to the Gilette ODI series, the KFC Big Bash and Brisbane Lions AFL season. While we love to see passionate fans in attendance, our team ensures all the action stays on the sporting pitch! CAP Security Services team members are seasoned professionals in managing any conflict that may arise during sporting or events. Check out our CAP Security Services’ blog on conflict resolution strategies that every fan should know.

2018 is definitely not over, as The Gabba prepares for some exciting events later this year. With a capacity of over 40,000, The Gabba will host Taylor Swift on November 6 for her Reputation Tour! CAP Security Services is preparing for what’s sure to be the highlight of many fans’ year.


Suncorp Stadium is an iconic landmark within Brisbane. The stadium is home to several sporting teams and frequently hosts major international music artists. We are extremely fortunate to have such a passionate sporting culture within Australia and the attendance at Suncorp Stadium is living proof of this dedication. Throughout 2018, Suncorp Stadium has hosted 13 home games for the Brisbane Broncos, 7 home matches for Brisbane Roar, 8 home games for Queensland Reds as well as State of Origin Game 3! These are just a few of the many incredible events that have taken place so far this year. Each event saw thousands upon thousands of fans entering Suncorp Stadium, excited to cheer on their favourite team. On the artist side, we also saw the legendary Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran take to the stage. These highly-anticipated events welcomed crowds of between 39,000 – 53,000 and bring international renown to Suncorp Stadium, which keeps teams, artists and their fans coming back year after year.

These events wouldn’t be possible without a dedicated security team ensuring the safety of everyone in attendance. With such large-scale events, many resources are needed for every detail to go to plan. CAP Security Services personnel are experts at servicing large events and understand the top considerations organisers have when looking for security teams. 




As we travel up north to Townsville, the 1300Smiles Stadium has had a jam-packed year also! The stadium is home to the North Queensland Cowboys and hosted all of their home games in 2018. Crowd attendance numbers have shown an increase from previous years, and it’s great to see more fans getting amongst the sporting action.


Last, but certainly not least, we have Townsville Entertainment and Convention Centre (TECC). The centre has had quite the year for music, with performances from Angus & Julia Stone, Jimmy Barnes and The Ten Tenors to name just a few! But TECC is well-rounded and had something for everyone in 2018, including English comedian, Ross Noble and performances from the Wiggles on their latest tour! Our team is proud to service these amazing events and celebrate diverse Australian art forms.

That’s a wrap on stadium servicing so far for 2018! It’s the passion seen at these events that make CAP Security Services so dedicated to providing top-tier security to each of our clients. We are ready for an exciting last few months of 2018 before we say hello to a new year!
