Social League


The UQFC Social League provides an alternative for players on UQ campus who can't commit to training and playing every week in the club competition.  The league offers a good standard of football, but in a less competitive manner and over a shorter season.


The competition runs in line with the university semesers and takes place in semester 1 and 2.  Games are played on field 9 on Sundays between 8:00am and 7:00pm.  


The competition is mixed with no minimum on the number of male/female players per team.  It follows an 11-a-side format and guarantees every team nine games over 10 weeks.  


You may register as a team, a group of players or individually.  Registrants must be 17 years or older but do not need to be a UQ student.  Fees are $215 per player, per semester.  The minimum number of players per team is 14, with a maximum of 18.


Contact our UQFC Social Administrator to obtain a link to the team registration form, and follow our Facebook page for regular updates.
