History, Fixtures Links.


The Queanbeyan Tigers Junior Football Club was formed in 1947. Over the early years it was a constant struggle for the Tigers to continually field teams however in 2013 the Junior Tigers will be starting their 66th Year in the ACT Junior Football League.

The Club continues to grow and provides over 80 per cent of the senior grade teams.

This was reinforced when 10 former local juniors played in the 2012 NEAFL Eastern Conference Premiership Team when it defeated the Sydney Swans by 30 points. This was a great effort and a credit to all of the people over many years that have helped the junior club grow.

The Junior Tigers are extremely proud of its history. Below are records of the Junior Tigers History.
