The Southport Australian Football Club was founded in 1961 and has since established itself as one the largest Australian Rules Football Clubs in Queensland.
Since our inception, the mission at Southport Sharks has been to promote and foster the growth of Australian Rules Football on the Gold Coast.
Our senior men’s and women’s teams are now playing in the highest leagues outside of the AFL & AFLW. The men’s team participate in the Victorian Football League, a semi-professional competition that features AFL Reserve teams, AFL-aligned clubs and VFL standalone clubs from Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.
Our two women’s teams compete in the Queensland Australian Football League Women’s (QAFLW), the South East Queensland-based state league.
Our club is steeped with a history of excellence, with 25 senior premierships in our 62-year existence.
In 2022, our men’s and women’s senior teams made the Grand Final, and our women’s reserves team won the QAFLW Reserves Premiership in their first year in the competition.
As a non-profit organisation, Southport Sharks and its members are committed to supporting the local Gold Coast community with many community initiatives.
We are highly regarded as one of the Gold Coast’s largest premier sports, entertainment, and leisure precincts, with 50,000 members and 500 junior players.
Our state-of-the-art facilities provide members and guests with various dining options, bars, entertainment, Mantra at Sharks hotel and access to Sharks Events Centre and Southport Sharks Health + Fitness.
