All Day Carnival 2023

Good news everyone! Following our run of set-backs, TCF is happy to announce that our all-day carnival is set to go ahead on 21st October in Toowoomba (venue to be determined).

Following our recent public difficulties, a number of fantastic people and organizations have reached out to help get Toowoomba Community Football back on it’s feet. We’re delighted to announce that Baptist Football Queensland (BFQ) has gone above and beyond to support Toowoomba Community Football and it is thanks to their generosity that we will be able to forge ahead with our all-day carnival.

To further solidify this friendship with BFQ, they have suggested that they send a squad up for a friendly match against an amalgamated TCF squad prior to CFFA Nationals in September/October. Watch this space for expressions of interest!

TCF continues to be a not-for-profit, volunteer-run community initiative for players of all cultures, genders, ages and skill levels to play football for fitness and fun.

Can’t wait to see you on the pitch!

2023 season update

Hi all, an important update regarding our 2023 season.

It is with significant disappointment that the TCF leadership team has made the decision that the 2023 competition season will not be able to go ahead. Yesterday, 15th March was the final date for team registration and unfortunately we have come up significantly short in registration numbers.

As you would all know, TCF is non-profit and we choose to keep our player fees as low as possible to encourage as many people to play, but it requires us to have minimum number of players to cover our insurance and field hire bills. With all past team leads followed up, no prospects in sight for other teams registering and the council field booking date now past due, we are left with little option: the absence of teams registering and low player numbers means it is financially unviable/impossible to run an organized full-season competition.

Looking forward, TCF will still plan on hosting several All-Day Carnivals during the winter season, please look out for these! We also hope that next year will bring a renewed interest and revival for a full-length season.

If you have any feedback or comments on the way TCF conducted it’s pre-season communication or regarding the 7-a-side competition, please feel welcome to email that to

Team and Player registrations are now open!

ADC Wrap Up!

And that’s a wrap for the second Toowoomba Community Football All Day Carnival for 2022!!!
This second Carnival for 2022 was held on Saturday 27 August 2022 at Captain Cook Ovals. Toowoomba turned on a lovely late winter day, with the sun shining and clear blue skies, welcoming 12 teams all competing to become TCF All Day Carnival Champions.
The competition was fierce, the atmosphere was social and jovial, and there was an undeniable buzz around the ground. The essence of the day was captured by Bek who we are grateful for taking on the duty of Carnival photographer again – thanks Bek. With thanks to our food / drink suppliers, 2nd Shot and Wilsonton Lions Club, all players and spectators were kept well fed and caffeinated throughout the day. Almost all teams made the most of the glorious weather and took the opportunity to set themselves up and settle in for the day, soaking up the atmosphere. The weather was also kind enough to allow families and kids to come out and enjoy the day.
A special thanks must also go to Optus Darling Downs for supporting our Carnival again. Optus are a great supporter of regional football and it was great to have them along. The bright yellow Optus balloons and Optus water bottles were a hit with the kids (and big kids), as was the FIFA and gift bags handed out throughout the day.
And, there was of course some football played! What a great, competitive day of footballing action it was. Kicking off at 8:00am, and the final match finishing at 3:00pm, it was a jam-packed day with a total of 29 matches played (which our 4 wonderful referees were kept busy running between all day – thanks guys!). There were over 75 goals scored, just as many great saves, and more than 120 players taking part, representing many church groups, community groups and ethnic groups across our Toowoomba community.
The finals were hotly contested, with this year’s Carnival including a ‘bottom’ finals series as well as a championship finals series, to maximise football for all teams. After 28 spirited, fast-paced matches, it came down to TCYA (Toowoomba Congolese Youth Association) and HRFC progressing to the Grand Final. With many teams hanging around to enjoy the afternoon and watch the Grand Final, as well as many other spectators cheering both teams on, the spirit of the Carnival really shone through as both teams battled for the title of TCF All Day Carnival Champions. After a tense and hard fought 20 minutes and plenty of chances for both teams, TCYA took their opportunities and ran out 3-1 winners.
Congratulations to TCYA who were crowned as TCF All Day Carnival Champions, and also congratulations to HRFC and every other team for competing in what was a fun-filled, spirit-filled day of 7-a-side football.
A final special thanks to all our wonderful supporters – Optus Darling Downs, 2nd Shot and Wilsonton Lions Club. We are so pleased to have you all on board to help us celebrate all the great things of community football in Toowoomba.
But most importantly, thanks to you – the players, the referees, the spectators, the families, the TCF family – for making this another day to remember!

Following the Pool Draw this morning (13 August 2022), we have now finalised the Carnival GROUPS and DRAW.
It is important for all team captains to study the draw and check your first match time particularly. Some matches kick off early (8:00am). Also, please remember that we will require all players to be paid with player forms completed at least 15 minutes prior to the first match, and this is the responsibility of the captain/manager. Please ensure you allow time for this on the day. It will be a busy day, with matches kicking off from 8:00am sharp, and all games will commence on time due to the jam-packed fixture list.
Also, all clubs that have two (2) teams, will need a list of which players are playing on which team, and this must also be provided prior to your first match. Players can only play for one team throughout the day.
The ADC Rules and Format document can be found on the Downloads page. This is an important document, as it provides a lot of information on the format and timing of the day, the specific rules for the Carnival, and how the points / match system will work.
We have a great lineup of food / coffee suppliers, and the Optus Football truck, so don’t forget to invite your family and friends, and set up a gazebo to soak up the atmosphere of the day.

ADC Pool Draw Tomorrow!

We are now just over 2 weeks away from the TCF All Day Carnival on 27 August 2022! Excitement is building and the Carnival is coming together really nicely.
Now that we have all the team nominations in for the Carnival, we can start looking ahead to the Carnival Day itself. A special welcome to all those new and returning teams. It is great to have you all on board!
Firstly, a friendly reminder that the Pool Draw will be held tomorrow (Saturday 13 August 2022), at 10:45am at Kearneys Spring. A Draft Draw and Groups are attached, which will help all teams understand the general format of the Carnival. This Draw will be updated and finalised this Sunday 14 August 2022, following the Pool Draw. This year we have a total of 12 teams, and will have 3 Pools / Groups, each with 4 teams each! This means that each team will have a minimum of 3 group matches throughout the day, and a minimum of 1 finals match for each team.
Please note, that if weather is not suitable for holding the Pool Draw at Kearneys Spring, the Pool Draw will be held at McDonalds South (Ruthven Street), at the same time (10:45am) tomorrow. A decision on this will be made by 9am tomorrow (Saturday and posted on the TCF Facebook Page.

ADC #2

With the 2022 TCF Season well underway, and to maximise football for everyone, we have decided to hold a second All Day Carnival for 2022. So please note that our second TCF ALL DAY CARNIVAL will be held on Saturday 27 AUGUST 2022.

We look forward to working with you all to try and get as many teams as possible involved in what promises to be a great day of football.
The format for this Carnival will be largely the same as earlier this year, with a number of pool games, followed by finals matches stretching through the entire day. Matches will be 20 minutes in duration, with multiple matches for each team throughout the day, played on smaller fields with some altered rules to make the games enjoyable. We will send out Carnival Rules and a Draw closer to the day.

We will be organising a coffee and food van for the day also, so I really encourage all teams to set up a gazebo, settle in for the day and enjoy what the day has to offer.

The TCF ALL DAY CARNIVAL will be held on Saturday 27 AUGUST 2022, at the Captain Cook Ovals. This Carnival is only five (5) weeks away!
We are welcoming all teams, current, past and new, to join in on the fun. There is a small fee for any teams or players who are not playing in the full TCF Season, and we can pass on more info for any interested teams. For any team or individual currently playing in the TCF 2022 Season, the All Day Carnival is FREE.

For now, it would greatly assist if you could advise whether you will be registering one (1), two (2) or more teams.
This promises to be a great day of community celebration as we come together to kick a football.
Please feel free to spread the word so we can get as many teams as possible registered for the day! If you know of any other football teams or community groups who may be interested, please let us know!
