Mundingburra Aitkenvale Olympic Football Club
Olympic Park - Mervyn Crossman Drive, Annandale
FQ NORTHERN COMPETITION AWARDED THE
2022 CLUB OF THE YEAR (JUNIORS & SENIORS)
The first Mundingburra United Soccer club teams were formed for the 1967 season. A strip of royal blue and white was adopted and their training ground was the Mundingburra State School. The Department of Education granted land to the club on the corner of Thompson and Burt Streets in 1976. There was also land made available by the Council Water Reserve further along in Burt Street for a field and toilet block. This is the current site for the Clubhouse and playing field, which was officially opened in 1979.
Olympic Soccer Club was invited to use the grounds of Mundingburra United Club for home games in 1980. In 1984 Mundingburra and Olympic teams began the process of merging and in October 1986 the Clubs new name was adopted, the Mundingburra Olympic United Soccer Club Incorporation, came to fruition on January 1 1993.
1995 North Queensland Soccer Federation changed the format of the Senior Soccer competition and introduced the Premier League. For clubs to be permitted into this competition several conditions had to be met. One being each Premier League side was required to have a clubhouse. This along with other factors brought together Aitkenvale United Soccer Club and Mundingburra Olympic United Soccer Club Inc. It was agreed the 2 Clubs should amalgamate.
The formalities for this merger were only formalised at the end of 2002 and the Club is now known as Mundingburra Aitkenvale Olympic United Soccer Club Inc. In 2006/2007 both Junior and Senior Committees combined to be one and therefore decided to shorten the Club name to M A Olympic FC.
In 2021 our club held its 50+ year celebration at The Ville, Townsville in what was an amazing evening with many great stories and memories shared by all. We had in excess of 200 former and current members with a highlight of the evening, acknowledging our club Life Members.
2022 will see MA Olympic FC unite further as a club and move into our new home facilities in Annandale. Olympic Park is located at Mervyn Crossman Drive and welcomes our entire club with the new and improved facilities. It includes 2 full sized fields, female and male dressing rooms and amenities, referee room, office space, meeting and function room, canteen facilities, parking, fully fenced facility for extra safety for our members and more. The move is a new and exciting change for the club, but we will forever bring the same values and family culture to ensure our football family doesn't lose sight of who we are.
