Part of Nine's 'The Sporting Bubble' - a documentary about how the 2020 AFL season was saved - will be played to the IOC, highlighting Queensland's ability to keep high-level sport going during the coronavirus pandemic.

A special task force has been created to finalise the venue master plan and key decisions include checking the viability of the $2 billion Brisbane Arena at Roma Street.

They will also decide whether to renovate the Gabba or build a new stadium at Albion Park Raceway which will mean construction of a major transport line, likely a train network.
