We wish Godfrey well for the competition and hope he thoroughly enjoys the experience.

Changes to Some Under 9 - Under 11 Fixtures

Football Brisbane have redrawn many of the Under 9 - Under 11 competition draws. These changes will affect many of our teams. These changes have also impacted on our rosters and these too have changed in some cases. Please check the fixtures on our website for current information (as at 3 July). For fix 14, 15 and 17 for Under 10 teams, please note that I have requested the changes highlighted in yellow.

Football Brisbane Club Referee Course - Expressions of Interest Sought

There is every chance that at some stage during the season, there will be no referees appointed to your game or your child's game (Under 12 to senior mens and womens). This has already occurred in several senior games and also junior grading games. There is a real shortage of referees available and Football Brisbane acknowledge that at least 10% of games each weekend will have no referees appointed. So, what can we do??

Junior games, according to the rules, MUST proceed. Senior games are a little different however it is preferred that they too proceed. So, someone will have to step up and referee the game!!! A daunting task to be sure however with knowledge of the rules and their interpretations, the task is less daunting.

Souths United are seeking expressions of interest from parents, coaches, managers and older siblings to run a Football Brisbane Club Referee Course. Successful participants will then be issued a certificate and be eligible to referee any games at Souths (age dependent) where Football Brisbane Referees are not appointed.
