The 2019 CQ Intercity dates and locations have been finalised as the Shield takes on a more rural fell this year. The Intercity Shield is a junior representative program involving games between Central Queensland regional areas of Rockhampton, Gladstone, Biloela & Districts, Emerald & Districts and Capricorn Coast in age groups Under 11 to Under 16.
The Intercity Shield is a great chance for children to have a taste of representative football and play for the pride of their centre. It is also a fantastic opportunity for all centres to come together in the one space as one region. Intercity Shield games are scheduled to be held in Blackwater on the 28 July and Capricorn Coast on the 11 August. Centres are encouraged to enter a team in each of the age groups if numbers allow.
Age groups for the Intercity Shield are:
- Boys Under 11, Under 12, Under 13, Under 14, Under 15/16
- Girls Under 13/14 and Under 15/16 (Girls Under 11 or 12 can enter into the boys U11 or U12 teams)
CQ has provided a timeline of events. Trials for each region will be decided and by the facilitators and coaches and will be notified in due course. Confirmed dates are:
