Easts FC, originally formed in 1922, is one of the oldest and most established Clubs in Queensland.
In 2017 it celebrates its 95th year as a football Club in Brisbane.
Situated at Heath Park, it is the most centrally located of all Women’s National Premier League and Men’s Brisbane Premier League Clubs in Brisbane, approximately 2.7 kms from the Brisbane city centre.
The history of the Club and its direct association with Heath Park goes back well over 40 years.
In 1969 the Easts-Aston Villa Club, a successful 2nd Division Club consisting mainly of young players amalgamated with the 1st Division Merton Rovers to become Merton East Football Club.
The Club as it is currently named came into being in September 1980 and was incorporated in the same year. This was only a change of name to identify the Club with a specific region of Brisbane and to promote sponsorship and support for our entry into the State League competition which was the highest league based in Queensland at that time.
Easts FC has a long and distinguished history of developing men and women footballers of the highest standard dating back more than 30 years ago.
