Named after the surrounding suburb Woolloongabba, the Brisbane ground was built in 1896 and generally holds the opening test of a series in Australia.
A somewhat soul-less bowl, the wicket is usually fast and bouncy and can be an intimidating place for visiting teams when packed out with a vociferous crowd.
It was the venue for the first tied test between Australian and West Indies in 1960.
