What’s Happening at Majura FC

Majura Technical Director, Philippe Bernabo-Madrid

Welcome to our new Technical Director. We are excited to have Philippe on board and to work with him to continue advancing our football program. Philippe has extensive coaching experience and will be assessed for his B License once we get back to playing football. Philippe is working with the committee on initiatives including our summer program and a virtual academy to see us through the remainder of lockdown. Please keep your eyes out for more information about these programs.


100 Years of Women’s Football

Today, Friday 24 September we celebrate 100 years of women’s football in Australia. The first official womens game was held at the Gabba in Brisbane in 1921 when North Brisbane played South Brisbane.

Majura FC acknowledges and pays tribute to the women in football who for 100 years have shaped the beautiful game.
A special shout out to all the Majura FC girls and women players, referees, coaches, managers, and volunteers – thank you for your contributions
