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.

A huge UQFC shout out to Greg - who armed with a metal detector and a rather mean looking excavating tool - assisted the Junior President in locating our long lost irrigation tap - finding it almost 20cm below ground level.
Greg also helped to put up some of our new sponsor signage. Thanks Greg - your time and help is very MUCH appreciated !!!! 😀

UQFC is seeking help from anyone in the community that might be able to assist the Club locate a "brass below ground irrigation tap" that has unfortunately become buried under several layers of top dressing and grass.
The tap has not been used since the fields were last upgraded and despite lots of poking around we have been unable to locate it. The dry weather is now forcing our hand and we have to find it !!! If you might be able to help - please contact the Junior President via this page or at firstname.lastname@example.org

Works continued on the new changing facility at the St Lucia campus today and with the early morning arrival of the concrete trucks - the first sections of the slab became visible. Whilst the new facilities will not be completed in time for Round 1 of the BPL Season - UQFC is hopeful to have access after the Easter break. Necessary repair and maintenance works to the irrigation system and playing surface on Field 3 itself remain ongoing.
*A Special shout out to Martin at BuildCorp Construction who might be receiving more than a few calls when the Football Brisbane 2019 Brisbane Premier League Season kicks off in February.
