Marking history in 2020

Brisbane Lions fans have the chance to name one of the nine Multiplex cranes on the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane construction site.

Multiplex is giving little Lions fans a chance to cheer on the Lions and go into the running to “Name A Crane” on the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane construction site.

As the contractor delivering the world-class integrated resort development at Queen’s Wharf, Multiplex has partnered with Brisbane Lions to launch a Name the Crane competition.

Children under 14 years old are invited to submit their idea for a name, with the winning names being displayed on the nine cranes on the Queen’s Wharf construction site.

Multiplex Senior Project Manager Rick Woodford said the Queens’s Wharf team wants to get behind the Lions in this history making footy finals season and fly the flag high on site.

“It’s an exciting time for footy fans and AFL and we want to get behind the Lions in their 2020 finals campaign,” he said.

“During the footy finals be on the look-out for Lions banners that will be displayed on five of the nine cranes.

“It’s a great opportunity for Lions fans to be part of finals footy and to also name a crane on this iconic project.

“We are proud to be working on one of the largest building projects in Queensland – what better way to showcase what we are constructing here, than by involving Lions fans from all over Australia.”

Lions CEO Greg Swann thanked Multiplex for their support.

“It’s been great to see Brisbane business get behind us in 2020 and the flags at the Queen’s Wharf site are a great show of support at what will become an iconic Brisbane site,” Mr Swann said.

The Lions kick off their 2020 Finals campaign against reigning Premiers Richmond this Friday night at The Gabba.
