In 2016 the idea of forming an LGBTQI+ inclusive soccer group was conceived after Tom Chai visited Sydney Rangers FC. With the assistance of a few people including Dan Lord and John Grady, Tom formed Brisbane Inferno FC. BIFC held its first social soccer game at New Farm Park, receiving good momentum.
But in mid-2018, Brisbane Inferno FC decided to stop organising soccer events due to ongoing field availability issues and inconsistent attendance.
In October 2018, Brisbane Inferno FC relaunched social soccer with the significant and notable help of Robert De Roos, Team Brisbane.
On the 4th July 2020, the Brisbane Inferno FC constitution was voted in at its inaugural AGM, thanks to a substantial effort from David and Jake.
We are currently playing social soccer at Victoria Park and invite everyone to come and join in.
Note – There are rumours of a Gay Brisbane soccer group from around a decade or so ago, but we cannot find any evidence of this. If you have any information, then please get in touch.
