Joan Pease MP2023-08-25

For the past four weeks, the Matildas have not only showcased their exceptional talent on the field but have also captured the hearts and dreams of an entire generation of young Queenslanders.

Key Points:

  • A new statue at Suncorp Stadium will honour the inspiring achievements of the Matildas, symbolising gender equality and inspiring future generations.

  • Collaborating with Football Australia, this statue will highlight the successes of Queensland women and girls, fostering an empowered society.

  • The monument's message reaches far, encouraging aspiration and unity while recognising the broader impact of sports on inclusivity and empowerment.

Their remarkable journey has ignited a sense of inspiration that extends beyond the confines of the stadium. In collaboration with Football Australia, we are proud to announce our joint initiative to erect a statue at Suncorp Stadium. This monument will stand as a tribute to the historic accomplishments of these incredible athletes, as well as a testament to the power of their influence on women and young individuals across the nation. At the heart of this endeavor is the Queensland Government's commitment to fostering gender equality. By recognising and celebrating the achievements of Queensland women and girls, we aim to create a future where opportunities are boundless and accomplishments know no boundaries. The statue at Suncorp Stadium will not only symbolize the Matildas' achievements but also serve as a beacon of hope for every aspiring athlete, showcasing that with dedication and determination, great accomplishments can be attained. This monument will stand as a reminder that the impact of these athletes reaches far beyond the realm of sports, inspiring a brighter, more inclusive future for all. As we honor the Matildas' legacy, we take another step forward in building a more equitable and empowered society. Through the shared love for sports and the unity it brings, we believe that this statue will inspire generations to come, reminding them that the sky is the limit when it comes to pursuing their dreams.
