With the ball at her feet:
a living history of queensland
women's football
Women started playing football in
Queensland 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.

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 state 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 may have things wrong and we know we are missing information. That's why we need your help. We would love to hear your story and see your photographs or memorabilia so we can add them to the project.
