Game On! Friday night from 6pm

A little flood damage won't stop us. We're hiring equipment to light up the field so we can watch some great games of football tonight down at the Zillmere Eagles home ground. 

Football action starts at Zillmere at 6pm tonight with the under 6s and under 8's playing the curtain raiser for the seniors game at 7:30pm - see you there!

Ground closure, MON & TUE

Please note that due to the conditions of the ground from Friday's storms there will be no training Monday & Tuesday. We would still love to see you though .....

In lieu of training Monday & Tuesday we would be grateful for as much assistance as possible to help clean up the field. This will assist us in returning the field to an operational standard for training Wednesday & Thursday as well as the Seniors game Friday night.

Many thanks in advance.

Please note due the current weather conditions we are experiencing, further weather predictions for the weekend and information received from local councils, AFL Queensland and AFL Brisbane Juniors clubs we wish to advise that ALL AFL Brisbane Juniors matches scheduled for Friday 1st, Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd May have been called off.

Junior (U6-U11) matches have been cancelled.

Youth (U12-U17) matches have been postponed due to the closure of grounds which would result in 80% of the matches not being able to be played. The league will use the Washout option of Sunday 12th July to ensure 14 rounds of the home and away season are played. A decision on fixtures for Friday 8th & Sunday 10th May will be communicated to all clubs by the close of business on Monday 4th May.

We do apologise for any inconvenience however we do believe this decision is in the best of interests of our club’s facilities and the health & safety of the players.

Renovation Progress

The renovations continue to make great progress as can seen within the following photos. Unless I'm mistaken I think that's a level floor!



Ready, Steady, RENOVATE!

It may be roped off outside but lets take sneaky peak inside! 

The renovations are well underway, what a transformation already ...... 



Queensland Government Clubhouse Grants

Needless to say the work involved and the cost associated with the renovations is significant and all grants helps us get one step closer to delivering the clubhouse we will enjoy growing into as the Eagles continue to spread their wings.

A BIG Zillmere Eagles thanks goes out to the Queensland Government for awarding us two gambling communities grants;

Gambling Community Benefit Fund (Clubhouse furniture)
Jupiters Casino Community Benefit Fund (Fitout clubhouse canteen & service area)

A word of thanks, acknowledgement & appreciation to our very own Liz O'Brien, it is through her fine work across all grant submissions which has delivered these wonderful funding opportunities. 



Brisbane City Council Clubhouse Grants

With renovations underway at the Zillmere Eagles Clubhouse a big word of thanks to the Brisbane City Council, not only for their funding but their fantastic support in bringing all parties and this project together. 

The renovations have in part been made possible through several BCC grants awarded to Zillmere Eagles;

Club13/14389 for strategic planning and good governance
Club13/14373 for refurbishments to the clubhouse

We can't wait to see the end results, this will make a proud club even prouder. 
You've got to admire the BCC logo, you got it, blue & gold!
