With the ball at her feet:

a living history of brisbane women's football

Women started playing football in Brisbane in 1921.

There were games and practices in 1926, 1933 and prior to 1963.

At present the periods in between those years are still a mystery.

We’d love it if you could help us.

The project collects individual stories, photos and memorabilia to present a narrative archive of the game’s remarkable history. The story of women’s football in our city is the community’s story, we hope as much as possible it is told by the people involved. Players, coaches, administrators, historians, writers and fans have contributed stories, so far.

We’re calling it a living history.

It is still growing and developing. We know we don’t have everything.

We may have things wrong or incorrect and we know we are missing information.

Can you help?

We would love to hear your story, make a record of it, and see your photographs and memorabilia and add them to the project.
