Greyhound racing is set to continue at the Ipswich Showgrounds in 2024.
Earlier this week, the Ipswich Greyhound Racing Club and the Ipswich Show Society reached an agreement to extend their lease at the venue for a further 12 months.
The agreement will see racing continue at the Showgrounds, ahead of the completion of Queensland’s future home of greyhound racing, The Q, situated in Purga.
At the conclusion of this lease, both the IGRC and the ISS will work together to ensure a seamless exit arrangement from the site with a view towards it being utilised for alternative community purposes.
RQ extends its congratulations to both parties on the agreement, which provides greater certainty to industry stakeholders and participants.
Earlier this month, it was announced that construction of The Q will soon commence with the appointment of FKG to complete the main body of works at Purga.
In a major milestone for the project, the next phase of works is poised to commence, setting new standards in modern track design once completed next year.
