The Gold Coast Titans are proud supporters of Queensland Touch Football, with the NRL Club taking naming rights to the sport’s biggest participation carnival.
From 2021, 6000 students from over 200 schools will play in the Gold Coast Titans All Schools tournament with the event to be played on the Gold Coast.
After previously being held in Brisbane, the world’s largest annual touch football tournament for secondary schools will call Runaway Bay home from next year.
Queensland Touch Football CEO, Greg Denny and QLD All Schools Tournament Director, Peter Bell announced today that the 2021-2023 QLD All Schools Championships will relocate to the Gold Coast thanks to the support of Major Events Gold Coast.
The move hopes to address field capacity issues and provide facility upgrades that will allow the event to continually grow on the Gold Coast.
The 2020 year has been a tumultuous one for everyone on the planet. However, not even a global pandemic has stopped the 38th Qld All Schools from going ahead.
In absolutely, terrific weather (uncommon for All Schools recently) the event saw some 350 teams in 7 divisions do battle over 5 days. Over 1400 games of touch were played and the 3500 participants revelled in the freedom that only a game of touch footy can bring. After being locked up for most of the year, the lucky students from all over Queensland had a ball – literally!

The program is jointly endorsed by QTF and Touch Football Australia and provides students with the only opportunity to attain VET qualifications via CSF as well as industry qualifications from Touch Football Australia.
