Lions at Springwood

Case Study

HCS was contracted to undertake the full design and construction of the facility, while also project managing the build and then entered into a Management Agreement to manage all aspects of the business on behalf of the Brisbane Lions, allowing them to focus solely on football operations.

Since opening in November 2010, the club has become one of Queensland’s most successful venues. It currently has over 140,000 social members and is regarded as the best AFL Social Club in Australia.

In 2017, the Brisbane Lions Football Club Board in association with HCS commenced a comprehensive masterplan design to take the Lions Social Club into 2020 and beyond.

Lions@Springwood has already delivered more than $24 Million in clear bottom line net profits to the Brisbane Lions AFL Football Club. The masterplan facility (Stage 1 now complete, with over 13% year on year growth), will establish and ensure solid and profitable ongoing cash flow for the football club into the next decade and beyond.

LIONS@Springwood is the official social club of the Brisbane Lions. The club offers a myriad of services including bar and dining facilities, live entertainment, function rooms, gaming lounge (including 200 poker machines) and a bottle shop.

In 2008, Brisbane Lions approached HCS to find a suitable site to maximise their return from a new social club. The Springwood region was selected and an application was submitted to OLGR for a 200 machine gaming licence.

In addition, the partnership has provided $450,000 in travel assistance for local sportspeople, helping them to achieve their sporting goals and dreams.

During 2020 and 2021, Lions@Springwood raised over $66,000 for Charity Partners ‘Chicks in Pink’ with their GO PINK campaign.
