Established as ‘Queanbeyan Makedonia’ by local Macedonians Vic Tsakalos, Done Dimov, and Angelo Hadzis, QCFC became a pioneering football institution in Queanbeyan and one of the oldest in the Canberra region. The Club was successfully registered with the Canberra region’s top division as part of the ACT Soccer Federation where it swiftly solidified its identity within the sporting landscape.


Early Success

Renamed Queanbeyan Macedonia, the club quickly rose to prominence, securing runner-up positions in Canberra’s top division in both 1969 and 1970, as well as winning the Federation Cup 1969. Further successes followed, with victories in the Second Division League Premiership in 1973 and both the Premiership and Championship in 1978.


Continued Triumph

Throughout the late-80s and 90s, QCFC maintained its dominance, claiming both the Championship and Premiership titles in Canberra’s second-tier competition in 1988, winning the Premiership in 1993 and both the Premiership and Championship 1995. Adapting to changing policies in Australian football, the club’s name also evolved during this period into Queanbeyan City Football Club.


Prominence Renewed

A resurgence in 2006 saw QCFC reclaiming its position in State League One, triumphing in both the Championship Final and the Premiership. The Club also celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2016 with a football tournament, attracting teams from across Sydney, South Coast NSW, and the ACT, which finished with a gala night that included former players including some of its founding members.


Milestones + Recognition

In 2021, QCFC continued to garner recognition within the broader Australian footballing community as it hosted the prestigious Maso Cup marking another significant milestone. In 2023, the NSW Labor government pledged $1.9 million for the installation of a clubhouse and permanent change rooms at QCFC’s home ground on High Street.


Today, QCFC has grown and diversified to become an inclusive club within the Queanbeyan-Palerang and Canberra regions, whilst still maintaining its traditional identity through cultural exchanges with players and community members alike. Still colloquially known as “Queanbeyan Makedonia” amongst its players and supporters, the club continues to grow as it works to solidify itself as a leader in the Canberra football community.
