Football re-emerges on the Gold Coast

Football began to re-emerge on the Gold Coast with the help of competition from just across the QLD border. In 1959 clubs such as Twin Towers were forming and the Tweed District Soccer Football Association (TDSFA) was building a strong local competition. This allowed a junior club (Palm Beach which was established in 1964) to join competition in the area.

By the 1970s, more teams were beginning to form on the Gold Coast. Musgrave FC formed in 1970 and soon after Nerang Eagles Soccer Club was founded in 1972.
