about Marlin Coast Football Club

Marlin Coast Rangers Football Club was established in 1946 and we continue to to offer a strong community based club in the Northern Beaches of Cairns, ensuring we deliver the best we can for all players.

Marlin Coast is the only club in the Cairns region which has four full size pitches available, three which are floodlit along with a Bar and Canteen area that is the envy of all other clubs in the region.

Marlin Coast Rangers is proud to have over 300 active junior members who participate in age groups from Squirts 3-5 yrs, U6 –U12 who play non-competitive small sided football and U13 through to U16 teams who participate in competitive games.

MCR joined the FNQ Premier competition in 2005. After two seasons of ‘doing it tough’ the senior management staff worked tirelessly to build teams and a club that were competitive. Their hard work was rewarded in 2007 when Marlin Coast Rangers Men’s Divisions were crowned the Premiers in the Premier Division, the Premier Men’s Reserve Division and the Youth Division. This was the turning point for the club and these teams.

Marlin Coast Rangers have been one of the most successful clubs in the region since 2007, regularly competing in final series as well as games against Townsville’s leading Premier teams.

Each year the club holds one of the largest football carnivals in FNQ which contributes to football in our region and gives players the opportunity to test thier skills and enjoy the game!

MCRFC prides itself in providing the best playing surfaces and amenities of any football club in Cairns. Our players train on, and play on, manicured pitches which support their skills and development as players.

Three of the four full sized fields are lit and irrigated and our main field is acknowledged as the best playing surface in the Far North.

With a strong community following on the Northern Beaches, Marlin Coast Rangers is the obvious choice for players who want to be part of a large strong football family.

2024 is set to be a huge season for Marlin Coast and we welcome all past and new players to enjoy the coming season!
