Club Statement

The Logan Metro FC committee would like to update everyone involved with the football club on the current situation with football in Queensland after today’s statements from Football Brisbane and Football Queensland.

As you may or may not be aware there is currently a dispute with the governing body who manages all the competitions (miniroos to senior teams) LMFC teams play in- Football Brisbane and the governing body who manages all football in Queensland -Football Queensland.

  • Football Queensland officially advised Football Brisbane today that of the view of Football Queensland that they (football Brisbane) are no longer members of Football Queensland.
  • Football Queensland provided assurances to clubs that referees, players and clubs will continue to be covered under the National Insurance Scheme.
  • Football Queensland sanctions all football across Queensland and advises that all training, games and football activities may proceed as normal and uninterrupted under the umbrella of Football Queensland.
  • Football Queensland will provide advice on competition management matters shortly.

What this means for your football club (Logan Metro FC) is that Training can continue for ALL LMFC teams as all clubs are directly affiliated to Football Australia and all participants are registered to Football Australia through Football Queensland so clubs will continue to be covered under the National Insurance Scheme.

We will put out another update (specifically on games this weekend) once we get information as promised from the Football Queensland competitions team.

It’s unfortunate that issues with governing bodies has caused so much confusion in the football community and threatening to majorly disrupt football in Queensland. We hope there is a quick, clear resolution to this and that we get strong leadership with football as the number 1 priority.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact any of the committee members.

2021 Capital League 2 coaching update

Logan Metro Football Club have proactively and strategically restructured our Capital League football department to further progress the work started of creating sustained on-field success in a manner that reflects the clubs identity and philosophies. The process has also highlighted LMFC’s strong history of developing and promoting from within the club for key positions.

Current head coach (since 2017) and inaugural player Luis Melgar will move into a newly created role of Football Operations Manager. His core responsibilities include player retention, recruitment, welfare and off field development. Luis will also provide strong leadership to the full LMFC coaching staff and players, ensuring clear direction and continuation of the clubs identity, culture and plan. During his time as Head Coach,  the club experienced tremendous success including the 2019 Premiership, 2019 grand final appearance, Promotion into Capital League 2 and an incredible run into RD 5 of FFA Cup qualifying where we claimed some prestigious scalps along the way (notably Mt Gravatt and Taringa) before eventually falling 1-0 to NPL side Moreton Bay. All of this was achieved in a style and manner that highlights the clubs unique identity and culture.

Luis will also continue to work with the digital Content team on delivering quality content across all our platforms to continue telling our story and growing our brand.

Inaugural player and head coach since 2017, Luis Melgar will be transitioning into a newly created role

Current first team assistant coach Forbes Madau will move into the head coach role and oversee the day to day on field football responsibilities. An FFA qualified coach, Forbes has an eye for the tactical side of the game and proven experience in developing young talent. He’s previously held the head coach role at Logan City Kings (where he oversaw a derby win against LMFC) as well as several positions from under 6- under 18’s at Olympic FC, Albany Creek and Rochedale.
