Five Academy sides to open new home

An historic day for Brisbane Roar Football Club awaits on Saturday as the first competitive fixtures are played at our new home at the Logan Metro Sports Park.

On Saturday, five of BRFC's six Academy sides will host partner club Olympic FC at our new home in a jam-packed day of football.

From 11:30am, five National Premier Leagues Queensland fixtures will be played back-to-back, beginning with the U13 Academy squad and culminating with the NPL Queensland Men's fixture between the Young Roar and ladder-leaders Olympic FC at 7pm. 

All BRFC Academy teams play in NPL Queensland competitions, in an age group one higher than their own.

Make your way to Football Brisbane's recently completed City of Logan football complex at 357 Browns Plains Road, Heritage Park.


The Young Roar will be looking to bounce back from just their second defeat of the NPL Queensland last weekend against Brisbane Strikers and consolidate their spot inside their top four.

Last weekend's 4-1 defeat was the first time in the opening seven rounds that James Robinson's side was unable to find to find the back of the next twice, but there are plenty of positives to take from a strong opening to the campaign.

"The processes that the boys are delivering on, in terms of what we want to see in the game, has been great and it's been good to see them get some rewards from that," Robinson said.

"Full credit to them in terms of the application. It's been really pleasing to see that from the boys."

An undefeated Olympic FC side will be arguably the Young Roar's toughest test of the season so far but the ladder leaders have been forced to come-from-behind to secure consecutive 2-2 draws in the last fortnight.
