KOJO, the creative studio focused on sports presentation and in-stadium activations, has been named production services provider for the 52,500-capacity Suncorp Stadium and the 42,000-capacity The Gabba in Brisbane and the 25,000-capacity Queensland Country Bank Stadium in Townsville, Australia.

‘AdNews’ stated that this brings KOJO’s portfolio of sporting venues to six across four States, including the recent announcement of the 20,000-capacity Blundstone Arena in Tasmania and long-term contracts with the 61,266-capacity Optus Stadium in Perth and the 53,500-capacity Adelaide Oval in Adelaide.

Victoria (Australia)-based KOJO has led the way in developing, producing and executing some of the most innovative event presentation solutions, using integrated media in sports stadia. For more than two decades, KOJO has been proud to partner with some of Australia’s most innovative and progressive sports leaders to create engagement solutions that truly connect with fans from a wide cross section of sports.

The partnership recognizes KOJO’s commitment to Queensland, particularly with ‘The Smart State’ gearing up for the Brisbane Olympics in 2032.

The 2032 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXXV Olympiad and also known as Brisbane 2032, is an upcoming international multisport event scheduled to take place from July 23rd-August 8th, 2032 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

‘AdNews’ further stated that KOJO set up an office in Brisbane in 2019 and has built a local team focused on sports marketing and live sports events, brand activations and post-production.

Said Stephen Lord, KOJO’s head honcho, “We are thrilled to be working with Stadiums Queensland at these iconic venues, which are sought-after destinations for live sport. We are excited to bring our integrated approach combining strategy, creative, production, and technology to the stadiums and their key hirers. Our proven FanX strategic approach and deep experience as in-stadium specialists will allow us to create unique world-first fan first experiences to deliver on Stadiums Queensland’s vision of ‘amazing experiences’.”

KOJO’s partnership with Stadiums Queensland will see the production team draw on its 25 years of fan-first sports experience to engage fans at the national and global sporting events and State-based competitions.

KOJO will work for home teams, including the National Rugby League’s (NRL’s) North Queensland Cowboys, Brisbane Broncos and Dolphins, the NRL Magic Round (all fixtures are played at one venue) and State of Origin, A-League’s Brisbane Roar, Super Rugby’s Queensland Reds, the Australian Football League’s (AFL’s) Brisbane Lions, and Cricket’s Brisbane Heat and Queensland Cricket teams.
