Home of the Mighty Thuringowa Bulldogs 1970 - 2020

Welcome to the Thuringowa Bulldogs Australian Football Club, Townsville's best family orientated sporting club from Juniors to Seniors including a Women's team.

Situated at Riverway Stadium, the best ground outside of Brisbane. The Bulldogs nominate teams in every grade played in the AFL Townsville competition and welcome all players to be part of the Dog Pack.


Let's go Doggies!!

After the longest Pre-Season of all time, it's great to say FOOTY IS BACK.


"What will it look like?",  I hear you ask and to be perfectly honest, we, the club, are not sure but if we all work together there is nothing we cannot overcome. This Club has been built on hard work and dealing with problems head on and this season will be no exception.


I would like to thank the Committee,  AFLQ and the Townsville City Council staff for their ongoing support and co-operation in these times and all having the positive attitude to return to the game we all love.


The Club has had to prepare a COVID Plan which includes our commitment to adhere to State Government, AFL and City Councils protocols along with how we intend to implement them. It is up to everyone at the club to ensure we commit to this process to ensure the viability of this season, if we do not, we place the season at risk. We like every other team and every other sport are being watched.


In saying all of that its mostly common sense.

  • Sign the register at the gate, no exceptions

  • Keep your space from each other.( Whilst watching the game in the stands, lining up for the canteen/bar/toilets)

  • The Club will have COVID officers moving around, please obey their instructions and be polite. (Abuse will not be tolerated and offenders will be evicted)

  • No sharing of food or beverages 

The Club needs your help if you can, these protocols and our commitment to adhere means we need volunteers more than ever and below are some of the jobs and times which we need to fill. The Senior playing group have committed to be involved during the Junior games to allow people to watch their kids. 



Riverway Stadium jobs;

  • Gate 

  • Scoreboard 

  • Canteen 

  • Covid Safety officers 


If you can assist in any way or want some more information, on Saturday ask at the Canteen or prior to Saturday call Ben Payne on 0407 748 837 or myself on 0400 ​018 666


Looking forward to seeing you and all the smiling faces back at the Stadium.


The game day experience may look different but the shape of ball is the same.
