XXXX Bitter Black Zone
They’re loud, they’re loyal and they’re colourful. In fact it is impossible to attend an Ergon Energy Boncos game at Suncorp Stadium and not be aware of the XXXX Bitter Black Zone.
Armed with boom sticks and a vocal capacity to rival some of the world’s best cheer squads, the 400 strong XXXX Bitter Black Zone has become the place to be for any mad-keen Broncos fan, forming an ominous black block at the northern end of the Suncorp Stadium at every Broncos home game.
According to Broncos fullback Karmichael Hunt, they have been a massive support to the team.
“Obviously as fullback, I’m down one end of the field on my own for half the game, so I get to hear them fairly clearly. They are a lot of fun and a lot of help too,” he said.
For the last home game of the 2006 season, Black Zoners gave Broncos favorite front rower Shane Webcke a send off to remember with special Webcke war-cries - the man himself even bowing to the Zone at the end of the game!
The XXXX Bitter Black Zone was developed in 2005 to leverage XXXX Bitter's sponsorship of the Broncos.
