The University of Queensland Football Club Inc. (UQFC) is the largest football club in Queensland. We are nationally accredited by Good Sports Australia and the Football Federation of Australia for our commitment to healthy and active participation and high performance in Australian football programs.
We encourage all players and volunteers, from grass-roots to elite levels, to get the most out of this great game and to play the best football they can.
Our members enjoy the game from ages 5 to adulthood (and beyond), with all players joining teams ranging from junior participation and development teams, to the highest Premier & City League teams as well as our own social football programs (which are especially suited to students during semesters).
Most teams compete within Football Brisbane or Football Queensland competitions, where we boast both Men's & Women's Premier League teams as well as our PS4 National Women's Premier League teams starting within our highly ranked junior football programs.
Our junior teams lead the way, with UQFC Mini-Roos (U6-U8) playing our unique 'at-home' leagues before growing into our U9's and above teams that play games across Brisbane.

Max McLeod has been a member of the UQFC Club since 2014 and is currently School Captain at Chapel Hill State School where he is participating in the Rotary Award scheme. As part of Rotary, Max donates an hour and half of his time each week to assist the UQFC Community by clearing all the soccer fields of debris and rubbish on Saturday mornings from 7am to prepare for the soccer games.
Max loves the early mornings and spending time with his Dad, Stewart, who has been enjoying helping Max achieve his goal for the community.
Max said "it gives me great pleasure to see the kids playing on clean fields and I am glad to be making a difference in the local community."
Presentation Day/Fun Fair Wristbands are available from the lower shed this morning and the UQFC licensed and fully stocked Midfield Canteen will be open all day.

PRESENTATION DAY // Sunday 10 Sept
Push the Plunger & Start the Fireworks - raffle
Last year Edith and James won the opportunity to 'push the plunger' and start what was an amazing fireworks display. If you are a Miniroo and have not yet purchased a raffle ticket - check with your Team Manager on how to enter the draw asap.
It's not only the last home game of the season, but what should be a thrilling top of the table clash as UQFC U16/1 take on Ipswich Knights.
Stay later or arrive early for your own fixture - but be there at Uni Field 3 on Sunday 20th August and show the U16/1 team some support. #TeamUQ#1v2
BOOT DONATION // Update
A Thank You message from Calum
Last term I came around and collected boots from various schools and soccer clubs and was extremely thankful for all the contributions that I received over those 10 weeks. I am pleased to say that we collected just shy of 200 pairs of boots! After being cleaned they’ve been sent off and hopefully will arrive at Lihir Island PNG by late August. A huge thank you to everybody that donated a pair of boots, you will have made a Papua New Guinean child’s day!
UQFC would like to commend Calum for undertaking such a worthwhile initiative and would be extremely happy to support you again in whatever way possible in the near future ⚽
