Lord Mayor to honour Brisbane Heat with Keys to City

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk is congratulating the Brisbane Heat Twenty20 cricket team for their win last night (Saturday, 19th January) in the Big Bash premiership, by bestowing them with the Keys to the City.

The Lord Mayor said he was proud of the Brisbane Heat’s efforts and said they deserved the city’s highest honour of receiving the Keys to the City – making them the 35th known recipient of this privilege.

“Brisbane continues to be a powerhouse for sport with the Brisbane Heat now joining a long list of successful teams in the last few years including the Queensland Reds, Brisbane ROAR, Queensland Firebirds and Australian Olympians,” Cr Quirk said.

“Congratulations to the Brisbane Heat on their win, and I now encourage Brisbane to get behind them as they take on the world’s best in the International Twenty20 Champions league.”

Cr Quirk said fans have the opportunity to see the Brisbane Heat officially receive the keys to the city this Tuesday 22nd January at 11:30am at the Queen Street Mall main stage, with formalities commencing at 11:45am.

“This is a great time to be behind Brisbane sporting heroes, so let’s let them know how proud we are of them and cheer them on in their next pursuit of victory,” Cr Quirk said.
