Legends Football

Our Objective

The object of Legends Football is primarily to provide a social organisation in which players compete on a purely social basis with the criteria to be over the age of 30 years and above.

We emphasise that our main aim is to foster participation and enjoyment of the game and with this in mind we have several divisions split into over 30, over 40, over 50 and over 55’s. The standard varies from very high in over 30s and 40s with some ex-pros playing from time to time through to competitive yet VERY social in our over 50 & 55 Divisions (and everywhere in between).

We play all the year round with the first season in mid-February and following seasons completing at end of November.

We play on each Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, with our games commencing at 6.30 p.m. – 7.35p.m. – and 8.40 p.m.

Club History

Where we were and where we’re at:

1985 (approx)  “Dad’s Army” was formed for players over 35 years of age with the games being  played at Southport Soccer Club after the Federation Soccer season.

6 Teams participated in this competition from Kingscliff, Burleigh Heads, Southport, Surfers Paradise, Musgrave and a team calling themselves The Cabinet Makers.

In 1989 following the soccer season, the over 35 soccer recommenced, this time at Mudgeeraba with 6 teams and only weeks later extended to 8 teams including Koalas.

1990 saw the competition extended to play the full year.

On the 14th February 1990 the “Golden Oldies Soccer Association” started at Musgrave Park and Palm Beach with 12 teams – Cowboys, Barbarians, Gunners, Jets, Mustangs, Burleigh Vets, Sharks, Wallabies, Wallies, Warriors [now Chiefs], Old Wolves (Kingscliff), and Yuppies.

In May 1990 the venue for the games was changed to the Nerang Velodrome and on the 6th August 1990, because of numbers, the competition was divided into two divisions.

In 1994 the name was changed to the “Gold Coast Supa Oldie Soccer Association”.

In July 1995 the club relocated to Keith Hunt Park at Musgrave on two fields to be used by the Over 35’s. 

In 1999 three divisions were formed with 18 teams and a name change to the “Gold Coast Over 35 Soccer Association.’  The increase of divisions got players returning and in 2000 the field was increased to 24 teams, 28 teams in 2001 and we had gone to four divisions in 2003 with 32 teams.

The club started an over 45 competition in August 2003 with 6 teams and the over 35 teams still fielding 33 teams.

In 2013 we had six divisions with 24 teams in the over 35’s and 18 teams in the over 45’s.

Today we have over 50 teams in 5 divisions namely, Over 30, Over 40, Over 50, Over 55 and Legends Sevens, plus our Legends representative team in FQPL4
