Southport Sharks has an exciting and interesting football history dating back to when it was founded in 1961. Participating in the Gold Coast Australian Football League and playing its home games at Owen Park, it quickly built up a reputation of being a fiercely competitive and successful club.

When a spirited football team of 22 take to the field, they have the support of over one thousand team members, junior players and administration personnel who proudly wear the Sharks colours.
In 2019, we welcome six new recruits from all over Australia, ready to take on the new season donning the black and white. You may read all about them and why they chose Southport over on our Football Blog. The boys have been busy preparing for the 2019 season at the annual pre-season camp. Take a look into the three-day camp that tested the team both physically and mentally via The Gold Coast Bulletin website.
