Funding and Support
Queensland Cricket Infrastructure Strategy 2018-2028
The Queensland Cricket Infrastructure Strategy 2018-2028 (QCIS) presents a clear blueprint for cricket stakeholders and government at all levels to ensure cooperation to direct and maximise smart investment in the right cricket infrastructure for Queensland, in the right locations, at the right time.
The Strategy helps to guide investment from government sources, and from cricket’s own Australian Cricket Infrastructure Fund.

Strategic Infrastructure Priorities
In January 2022, Queensland Cricket launched the Strategic Infrastructure Priorities document. The purpose of this document was to drive funding into cricket infrastructure by clearly identify those priority projects which were urgently required to support Queensland Cricket’s strategic objectives particularly in terms of growing participation.
Identified projects were selected based on several factors including strategic importance, level of stakeholder engagement having already been completed, degree of co-funding in place whilst still requiring further funding investment.
A comprehensive audit of cricket facilities was completed by Queensland Cricket as part of the Cricket Australia-led National Facilities Audit project commencing in 2016.
The auditing process, examining 700 community cricket venues (1100 fields) across Queensland, created a detailed bank of data to help plan for the state’s future infrastructure needs.
To develop the QCIS, Queensland Cricket appointed InsideEDGE Sport and Leisure Planning to analyse and map relevant audit data and develop the QCIS.
QCIS project delivery history can be followed in the attached files.
