About the Festival

The 2016 GLBTIQ Sports Festival run by Team Melbourne will be held on Saturday 30 January.

Taking place at Footscray Park, the GLBTIQ Sports Festival is a celebration of GLBTIQ sport and recreation in Melbourne and aims to do three things; to get more of the GLBTIQ community involved in sport, promote the important health benefits to sport participation, and to build a stronger connection across Victoria’s GLBTIQ sporting and recreation groups.

The Sports Festival is the single largest annual event of its kind in Australia and brings together GLBTIQ sporting and recreation clubs for the ultimate come and try day.  

Supported and funded by Maribyrnong City Council, the Sports Festival will provide countless free sessions for individuals and groups interested in sport and recreation within the GLBTIQ community. Featured sports and activities will include AFL 9s, rugby union, volleyball, swimming, rowing and tennis.

The Sports Festival is also being supported by Melbourne United FC, Basketball Victoria, Netball Victoria, Melbourne City FC, St Kilda FC and the Melbourne Rebels.

Arcuri & Associates Pty Ltd are proud supporters of the GLBTIQ Sports Festival
