Rangers FC 40th Anniversary 8-A-Side Carnival

Gear up for North Queensland's largest senior sporting carnival when Mackay Rangers FC hosts its 40th anniversary 8-a-side tournament.

This year's Carnival will be staged from Saturday September 30 to Sunday October 1 at the club’s home base at Eric Homan Park and promises to be an exhilarating weekend of football action.

From Brisbane to Cairns, teams are gearing up to participate in the annual event - each bringing their own distinct flair and passion for the game.

With unique rules that include no offside and special points awarded not just for goals, the Carnival guarantees non-stop action and fervent competition for both men and women plus $6000 in prize money.

The Carnival also features a Penalty Shootout competition with raffles drawn throughout.

On the Saturday night the Two Māoris band come down to perform and put on a show after an action-packed day of Carnival fixtures.

Come along and make sure to spend the night reminiscing from 6.30pm to 10.30pm.
