The Sunshine Coast Falcons are a rugby league football team based on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. They compete in the Queensland Cup and their home ground is Quad Park. The Falcons are currently affiliated with the NRL team Melbourne Storm.

History

The Falcons are the representative team for the Sunshine Coast. They competed in the first season of the Queensland Cup in 1996 but dropped out the following season. It wasn't until 2009 that they made it back to the Queensland Cup after securing an agreement with the NRL's Manly Sea Eagles to become a feeder club. Between 2009 and 2013 the club was renamed the Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles due to the partnership with the Manly Sea Eagles.[1] In 2014 the club reverted to the Falcons name and struck a three-year partnership with the Melbourne Storm [2]

The Falcons historic colours have been black and gold however when the Manly Sea Eagles announced their partnership with the Falcons the club rebranded to become the Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles and the colours changed to Manly's colours of maroon and white. When the feeder arrangement ended the club continued with the name but changed the colours to blue and white. However fans and players on the Sunshine Coast called for a return to the clubs traditional name and colours and in the 2014 season the club complied, rebranding back to the Falcons with gold and black colours.[4]

Stadium

The Falcons home ground is Sunshine Coast Stadium, located in Kawana Sports Precinct.[5]
