In 1977 Women’s Soccer Queensland (WSQ) struck out to attain a field.
Hamilton Junior Soccer Club sold their assets at Pinkenba to the WSQ for $400. The grounds and Clubhouse quickly became Headquarters, but Brisbane City Council leased the land to the local Labour Branch a year later.
Lord Mayor, Frank Sleeman offered WSQ Atlanta Field, Geebung instead. Plans were drawn up for football pitches, dressing rooms, equipment storage and a canteen.
THE FIRST STEPS WERE ARDUOUS, BUT BRISBANE WOMEN’S FOOTBALL MADE IT THEIR HOME.
