The Majura Football Club is based in Canberra – the national capital of Australia.
It is a voluntarily run organisation that is open to boys and girls with teams for players as young as 5 and up to 18 years old.
If you are interested in playing football with Majura, please refer to the registration page.
The club colours are white with royal blue trim, and our strip is white with two blue strips down the sides, royal blue shorts and white socks with Majura embroidered on the sides.
Equipment and clothing in the club colors can be obtained from our shop.
If you are already a player, coach or supporter of the club, there are also a number of resources you might find useful in the documents part of this site.

History

The club was incorporated on the 21st of May 1981, however it originated from two of the earliest junior soccer clubs in North Canberra:

  • North Canberra Soccer Club; and
  • Downer United Soccer Club.

Initially the club operated out of a little caravan but lots of hard work and fund raising by a dedicated bunch of volunteers enabled the club to acquire its own clubhouse.
On weekends, the clubhouse provides a shop, canteen, BBQ, information and toilet facilities.

1970 - 1979

Canberra North Soccer Club, and Downer United Soccer Club, were the precursors to Majura Football Club.
