It was formerly known as Neumann Oval and was home to the Fortitude Valley Diehards rugby league team from 1909 until 1995. The oval was named for Fred "Firpo" Neumann, Valley's club captain (and later president) and Queensland and Australian representative footballer.[1] Queensland Cricket purchased the ground not long after Valley's relocation and named it in honour of former Australian cricket captain Allan Border. The ground is used as a training facility for the Queensland Bulls and more recently the Australian cricket team.[2] The capacity of the ground is 6,300, which is much smaller than the Gabba. It is also used as a home venue for the Queensland Bulls and Cricket Australia XI in Australian domestic cricket.[3]
