The ‘re-born’ Gold Coast United have come a long way in a short time working hard to create an inclusive club with the highest levels of governance, best coaching programs and lowest NPL fees possible.
The club has adopted a community wide football philosophy which looks to engage with all football and related stakeholders, partnering with numerous schools and clubs across the Gold Coast and Northern Rivers and establishing links with the grassroots in the region.
The Club’s primary purpose is to provide access to elite pathways for all aspiring players looking to take their football to the next level. The Club competes in the National Premier Leagues (NPL) which offers that opportunity, the next step up from local Community competition.
While the ultimate goal is for Gold Coast United to compete at the highest level of football in the country, the A-league & W-League, the focus remains on offering the best possible opportunities for young players and coaches too, to develop their skills and competencies.
Gold Coast United chairman Danny Maher is overwhelmed by the amount of public support that the club has received since its return.
“We are proud to bring United back in a community-driven model and unite the sport on the Gold Coast.
“We’ve got the NPL license and we’re working hard to be successful at that level.
“United has one of the most accredited coaching groups in the competition and are looking to establish an exceptional football philosophy and practice in our Academy.
“The underlying structure is in place and the focus for now is on being successful at the NPL level and being absolutely prepared if and when the opportunity comes to re-enter the highest echelon of football in the country.”
