The Dairy Farmers Stadium, located in the suburb of Kirwan, was constructed in 1995 with a seating capacity of 30,000 after it was announced that the Twin Cities would be home to an National Rugby League team. The stadium is today the home ground for the North Queensland Cowboys. The stadium was previously known as Stockland Stadium and Malanda Stadium in the past.

In 2003, Dairy Farmers Stadium was chosen to host three games for the 2003 Rugby World Cup, and hosted the Japan national rugby union team. On the 12 of May 2006, the final season match of the Super 14 between Queensland Reds and the Highlanders  was played at the stadium. 

The Riverway is a major urban and recreational development that  has a new cricket and Australian rules football stadium. On New Years Eve 2008, the new 10,000+ capacity Tony Ireland Stadium played host to the Queensland Bulls against the Victorian Bushrangers.

This was the first match in the expanded Twenty20 competition as part of the 2007-08 interstate program.
