A suburb, a creek and a major arterial road share the name “Moggill”, derived from “magil”, meaning water dragon in two local Aboriginal languages.

The Moggill United Soccer Club was formed in 1974. Games were originally played on the site currently occupied by the "Dog Park" in Birkin Rd. Night games were not possible as there was no lighting, but a single light powered by a portable generator was used for training nights. It used to run out of petrol during training which was always fun! The club founder was Robbie Roosen and the inaugral Under 7 team became Brisbane Champions.
The Bellbowrie Sports and Recreation Association was formed in the early 80's with Soccer coming under their umbrella. We were seperately incorporated as the Moggill United Soccer Club in April 1999. MFC caters to boys and girls from 4-54 with Squirts, Junior mixed, Divisional Age, Youth, Senior Men, Open Women and Over 35.
The senior men’s team won their first ever title in 1985 beating Annerley in the div 4 GF. Afterwards the whole team did laps of Bellbowrie on the back of Joe & Kay Chapman’s turfing truck. Was quite a celebration. We won the double again in 1987 and then won the league but lost the GF in 91. Then in 96 won an epic grudge match GF against South Star. We lost to them 3 times during the year only to beat them in the grand final played at Beenleigh.
Season 2004 marked the 30th anniversary of the Moggill United Soccer Club. The Club changed its name to the Moggill Football Club (or Moggill FC) in 2006. Moggill FC Inc is an incorporated non-profit organisation under the Qld Associations Incorporation Act 1981.
