As per directive received from Football Queensland and Football Brisbane (available at https://www.footballbrisbane.com.au/coronavirus-covid-19/) all training is suspended immediately until 14th April 2020.
All competitions are suspended until 1 May. Note, this does not impact junior competitions currently as these are slated to begin in the first week of May anyway.
SUFC will work over the coming days with Football Brisbane and other clubs as to how the season will run from May onwards and will communicate updates as and when they arise.
No junior kit handouts will be run in the shutdown period in light of government guidance against large gatherings and to allow us to receive any back-ordered stock and hand out fill kits when everything starts up again.
Apologies for any inconvenience, but the decision is ultimately made with the safety of all players, coaches and parents in mind.
Please follow the club Facebook page and website for updates.

After the sign-on day, we will finalise the process of allocating teams and send out emails advising of team allocations over the next week or so ahead of training commencing.
Training is set to commence on:
- Week commencing 3 Feb 2020 – U12-U18

Exact days and times for each team will be advised as team allocations are announced.
Little Springers timing is to be confirmed but will likely run alongside junior season (commencing in late April/Early May).
Please note that in respect of fee payments, fees must be paid in full or a payment plan entered into, before training kit will be provided and registrations will be finalised. The deadline for finalisation of 2020 payments/payment plans is 28 Feb 2020. We will schedule additional nights during February at the new grounds on which we will be on hand to take payments, in addition to the sign-on day.
Ahead of the new year, the club wish to provide an update on 2020 season registration
Following the trials for Junior Komodo’s and Divisional teams through November and December, we have now selected the top-level teams in each age group and these decisions have been communicated.
The board, on behalf of the club, will now go through a process of allocating teams for all remaining players across all age groups from U6 to U18s. The intention is to provide a team for all players where possible. Given we have moved to the new facility, with extra training days, we anticipate being able to increase the total number of teams and offer football to the largest number of players in SUFC’s history! Assigned teams will be communicated in due course, ahead of anticipated training commencement in mid-February (excluding U15 Div 1 whose season starts earlier).
Trials/training will continue for Cap Men, and begin for City Men and Senior Women, in the week commencing 6 Jan 2020, at the following times:
- Cap 3 Men – Monday and Wednesday 6.30pm
- City Men – Tuesday and Thursday 6.30pm
- Senior Women - Tuesday and Thursday 6.30pm
- QMF (Over 35 and Over 45) – Wednesday 6.30pm
These are held at Field 1, Springfield Central Sporting Complex, Sportstar Drive, Springfield Central.
With the move to the new field, we have the ability to field additional teams and are looking to add at least one extra Women’s team and 2 extra Men’s teams for 2020.
The online registration form is still available at https://www.jotform.com/92437690642867. This is an internal club registration and the PlayFootball registration process will still need to be performed in the new year – this will be advised at the sign on day.

Springfield United Football Club was founded in 2008, with a view to providing football for all ages and abilities within the growing Western Corridor of Brisbane. I am very pleased to report that the club has not just grown substantially; it has also maintained this core directive, which is essential to sustained success in this region.
By fielding teams ranging from under 6 to over 45, Springfield United is well placed to deliver the code of football to a wide-ranging audience. Whatever your standard, whatever your age or gender, we will find a team for you to play in!
Our 2019 results were tremendous across the club. Of our 17 teams at U12 level and above, 15 finished in the top four and qualified for finals series and six of those won their respective leagues. Ten of those 15 teams made it through to grand finals and SEVEN ended up as champions. In particular, our divisional return of all nine teams making finals and six grand final winners, put SUFC amongst the most successful teams in Brisbane in that age category.
2019 also saw the return of senior women’s football, as well as fielding an all-girls team in the U12 competition. We now have a well-developed junior pathway on both the male and female side of the club – 2019 saw us give senior debuts to a number of youth players and the development of this youth system will see this become a regular occurrence over the coming years as we build from within!
2020 sees an exciting move to our new purpose-built facility at the Springfield Central Sporting Complex. This will allow us extra field access and the addition of teams at each level, so we are able to offer football to as many people as possible.
The coming season sees us welcome a number of sponsors into the SUFC family from within the local community, as well as the return of our Little Springers program, promoting movement and enjoyment in a football environment, which will run on weekday evenings for an extended period this season and will be available to a wider age range. Junior carnivals will also make a comeback and we will build on our charity events started in 2019, such as Pink Day.
We look forward to seeing you join up in 2020, whether you are a new member or an experienced campaigner!
We are united. We are Springfield United.
