CQUniversity Confraternity Carnival 2024


QISSRL  CQUniversity Confraternity 2024 Carnival | Destination Townsville

Ignatius Park College is immensely grateful to announce we will be hosting the 2024 CQUniversity Confraternity Carnival at the renowned Brothers Leagues Club whilst also utilising some fields at Ryan Catholic College right here in beautiful Townsville. This exciting opportunity fills us with motivation and a deep sense of College pride as we prepare to welcome schools from all over Queensland. The significance of hosting this prestigious event goes beyond the competition, and it is a chance to showcase the warmth and hospitality that Townsville exudes at what is arguably the best time of year!

As we prepare to host schools from far and wide, we are excited to showcase the Townsville region's stunning natural wonders and cultural richness. Our beautiful coastal setting, with its tropical landscapes and captivating wildlife, will leave a lasting impression on those who visit us. What we are most excited about, other than the football playing, is the warmth and friendliness of the Townsville community that will undoubtedly make each participant, coach, manager and families feel at home and create a genuinely inclusive and uplifting carnival atmosphere.

The CQUniversity Confraternity Shield Carnival promises to be an incredible event that will showcase the participating schools' outstanding talent and sportsmanship and significantly boost the Townsville region. This Carnival will allow businesses in Townsville to shine and thrive, attracting visitors who will explore and appreciate the diverse offerings of this vibrant city.

Ignatius Park College thanks the Queensland Independent Secondary Schools Rugby League President, Mr Peter Elmore and his entire committee for this opportunity and also extends a special thank you to Mr Justin Wilkins, CEO of Brothers Leagues Club, Mr Adrian Thomson, Football Operations Manager Townsville & Districts Mendi Blackhawks and Mrs Candi Dempster, Principal Ryan Catholic College for their ongoing support in being the host fields for 2024. We cannot wait to welcome the schools, their families and all the Carnival attendees to Townsville.

Together, let us make the 2024 CQUniversity Confraternity Shield Carnival a resounding success, celebrating the spirit of the competition and the unity and camaraderie that binds us all!
