Over 35s Football is a competition for female (over 30) and male (over 35 and over 45) footballers involving teams from the inner and northern suburbs of Brisbane. The competition’s maiden season was during autumn/winter in 2011.
The purpose of Over 35s Football is to provide football players in these ages groups with an opportunity to play local football, predominately on a Friday night in a relaxed, social environment with mates. Teams are organised into a number of divisions - Womens 30s, Mens 35s and Mens 45s.
Games consist of 2 x 40 minute halves, with a 10 minute break between halves. A referee is appointed to control each game (no assistant referees are used) and referee’s fees form part of individual’s registration fees. Unlimited interchange is allowed.
Each team, when nominating for Over 35’s Football, pays a Nomination Fee of $100. Individual players register for a team, and in 2015 the fees will be $130 per player, or $2000 per team excluding GST. As part of the registration each team receives 2 free match balls.
In addition, most clubs charge players an additional fee (which is paid to their home club) for provision of field facilities, lights, ground maintenance etc.
Note that there is NO INSURANCE COVERAGE supplied in this league. Insurance is a matter for the individual.
