Logan Metro Football Club is proud to announce our 2019 Capital Teams coaching line up
Head Coach- LUIS MELGAR
Luis has recommitted to the club after his 1st season as the head coach at LMFC which saw our first team set several club records including- most goals scored in a season, least goals conceded in a season (2nd best in the league), highest placed finish, most points in a season. Luis heads into day 1 of preseason with the core of the squad already committed to him and the club for 2019.
“I’m genuinely excited at the quality of support we’ve added to our coaching team this year. In order for us to be successful on the pitch, we need to be at our best behind the scenes as a coaching team. I’ve got zero doubt that we’ve set ourselves up for a strong season in 2019”
Reserves Coach- LORENZO GUGLIELMINO
Originally from Argentina, Lorenzo has recently completed his FFA ‘C’ License. He shares the same philosophy on football as head coach Luis and will be a big asset to the coaching set up in 2019
Under 18 Coach/capital assistant- MICHAEL ULSTAD
Michael was the captain for the reserves in 2018 which saw them go 1 game shy of the grand final. A natural leader and a strong presence in the change room, Michael will guide our under 18 academy and help discover and develop the next lot of LMFC stars as well as assist with training for the capital teams.

Logan Metro Football Club is proud to announce a new partnership with one of the world’s most exciting car manufacturers, with the Audi Centre Springwood joining the club as a major sponsor for the 2016 season.
In a landmark deal for the club, the Audi logo will feature on the back of all club jerseys in the 2016 season, LMFC’s first in the Football Brisbane competitions.
LMFC will also be raffling off a brand new 2016 Audi A1 as a fundraiser throughout the 2016 season, with the car to be given away at the club’s presentation night at the Audi Centre Springwood at the end of the season.
Tania Meli, the General Manager of Audi Centre Springwood was delighted to announce the deal with Logan’s fastest growing sporting club.
“We are happy to be supporting Logan Metro FC, a key community player within the Logan Area,” Meli said.
“As a new business to the Logan area, Audi Centre Springwood is proud to be supporting local communities.”
Internationally, Audi sponsors a number of exceptional global sporting brands including football clubs such as Real Madrid FC, FC Barcelona, AC Milan, and Bayern Munich, as well as reigning AFL premiers Hawthorn in Australia.
Audi Centre Springwood will also donate to LMFC, Audis for a weekend to use as incentives for player and coach recruitment, as well as for fundraising.
LMFC club president Samuel Escobar was similarly thrilled at the new partnership.
“This is huge for the club,” Escobar said.
“To have a brand as admired and respected as Audi on board in 2016 is a massive show of faith in the club’s vision.”
“It will also be a great opportunity for us to raise money throughout the season with the car raffle, which is an extraordinary prize to be able to give away.”
Raffle tickets for the 2016 Audi A1 will be available at training sessions, game days, official club events and by request.
