Capalaba FC set to join Womens NPL and Mens QPL for 2018

Capalaba Football Club is proud to announce that the club will be accepting Football Queensland's licence offer to compete in both National Premier Leagues Queensland Women and the men's Queensland Premier League for 2018.

In what is a historic moment for the club which will now compete at a state level for both men and women for the very first time.  Whilst there is now a lot of work to be done between now and the start of the 2018 season the club is excited about the future for the Bulldogs.

Both licences are for five years which gives the club time to establish itself within the state based competitions.  The committee has already begun mapping out the structures needed to be put in place however first on the agenda will be to appoint a Technical Director for the men and women.  Both directors will be appointed not only on their ability in the football department but their understanding and willingness to support the club ethos.

Once the Technical Directors are in place the club can then move on to appointing coaches to the roles required by both licences.  All roles (Technical Directors and coaches) are open for submission and the requirements will be outlined in the application advertisements.

  • Under 13
