BRFC Community Update


There’s just over a month to go until the beginning of both the Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League seasons, but that hasn’t stopped our players getting out and about and giving back to local communities.

A fortnight ago, our Roar Women joined a band of people across the country showing support for women affected by domestic violence, braving an early Saturday morning to attend a Yoga4Dignity event.

The event, one of many held across Australia, was organised by women’s charity Share The Dignity –  an Australian Charity bringing dignity to homeless, at-risk and those experiencing domestic violence through the distribution of sanitary items and funding of funerals.

A group of our Roar Women, as well as Head Coach Mel Andreatta, showed their support for a great cause.


New Principal Partner ActronAir has challenged our boys to get out of their comfort zone, and a handful did just that, welcoming two special guests to our City of Logan Training Facility.

Parramatta Eels forward Daniel Alvaro & Tickford Racing driver Mark Winterbottom joined Adam Taggart, Stefan Mauk, Brett Holman and goalkeeper Brendan White for a little challenge designed to test the boys’ athletic abilities.

Stay tuned to see just how our boys fared!

It’s been a busy few weeks for both our Hyundai A-League and Westfield W-League sides, with players eager to support to give back.

A career in coaching also perhaps awaits BRFC youngsters Shannon Brady & Jay Barnett after their playing days with the duo leading a training session with Special Olympics Logan last week, showing the athletes some of the tricks of the trade at Logan Metro Sports Park.

As the Hyundai A-League season draws closer, many local junior leagues are coming to a close and a number of our boys ensured that junior presentation day was that little bit more special. 

Over the weekend, captain Matt McKay returned to junior club Sunnybank Saints while new recruit Stefan Nigro proved a major hit at Taringa Rovers’ presentation day.


Another young gun in Connor O’Toole proved to be a big hit with the kids at Robertson State School, joining in the festivities at the school’s fete last Friday. 

A number of our Hyundai A-League boys also did their best to make sure some young grand finalists had a day to remember, heading along to the Football Brisbane junior Grand Finals at Logan Metro Sports Park a fortnight ago.

Joe Caletti, Jacob Pepper, Jack Hingert, Daniel Bowles, Jamie Young and Stefan Mauk all ensured that everyone left with a smile on their face, taking the time to have a chat and take photos with the next generation of Brisbane football stars.

With local football seasons coming to a close also means it must be time for the September School Holidays and our Roar Active Program have a jam-packed fortnight ahead!

All our fun football-filled holiday programs are run by our trained and qualified Roar Active Program staff and kids need nothing more than runners, a water bottle and a smile to participate.

Clinics will held across Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, beginning on Monday, 24 September CLICK HERE FOR A FULL LIST OF BRFC SCHOOL HOLIDAY CLINICS.
