Football Brisbane exists to provide each of our communities a space to participate in ‘The World Game’
We provide services including competition management and support in areas such as governance to assist clubs and volunteers in providing opportunities for people to play football.
It is widely acknowledged that local, aspirational and community football is vital to the overall success of our game. Every player begins their journey at the grassroots level and it is imperative that clubs are given the support required to ensure that the first football experience is a positive one, and that players fall in love with game. Players play for a variety of reasons and we cater for those who want to have fun with their friends while fostering those that aspire to play for the Socceroos or Matildas
We are based at the Logan Football Complex in Heritage Park and are the association body for 80 clubs in SEQ. In 2019 we had over 28,000 members playing within our competitions. Participation from 2018 to 2019 increased by 4.65% and we expect this to continue for 2020.
