mccann john 100wThanks for coming to the new Glenorchy District Football Club website as part of our new online presence it is a great way to be across the latest Magpies' news from the Club. We will keep all interested supporters and, partners across the important ways to get behind the Club for membership, sponsorship, supporting the teams and events the Club is holding, being briefed on developments, following team performances and individual stats, getting to know our players, checking the club history, sponsors, delivery partners, staff, volunteers and our community.

The Club has for many years been a base for many smaller Clubs and community groups in the Northern suburbs of Hobart. We have also been involved with many community based partners to provide activities at the Club and outreach into our community. Our most visible programme currently is our schools and Junior Development programme but with the completion of our new Clubrooms in early 2016 we will be boosting our activities both at the Club and community outreach being driven from the Club. We will be combining with many of our current and some new partners to make sure the community of Glenorchy, surrounding areas  and our zone does  not miss out on programmes in recreation, well-being, healthy activity and group participation for all ages.

Get behind the GDFC Magpies this year and use our new website as a great source of information and interaction with the Club. Please send through any ideas you have to improve it further.

GDFC. Our Club and Our community working together as one

Welcome to the new GDFC website moving forward into the future, 2015 and beyond.

This new look website is not only fantastic for up to date information but provides an in-depth look at the proud history of this great football club.

The new look website is not the only exciting thing happening in Magpie Land at the moment.

The playing group has completed a big pre-season under the guidance of our new strength & conditioning Coach, Sam Yee.  Sam Yee has been a massive inclusion to our program coming with a wealth of experience. He has this year’s playing group the fittest since the 1975 side.

With great addition to our playing group and a mix of old and new players returning, the club is looking forward to a big season.

This year the GDFC has 10 members in the Tasmanian under 18 program and in the under 16 Tasmanian Program. This is a clear indication of the great youth and potential for the near future of our senior playing group.

In saying this, make sure you check out our Facebook and Instagram account to see daily updates on the inner workings of this great football club.

This is a exciting time to get behind the football with the playing group set to be in the finals for the next 5 years and the addition of the first class facility at the ground.

Now is the time to get in and support the great community football club.
