Club History

The Bond University Football Club was formed in 2011 and entered the AFLQ Division 3 Central league for their inaugural season. Bond would play home games at the Robina Roos' ground on Scottsdale Drive due to unsuitable facilities existing at the university. Nicknamed the Bull Sharks, the club surprised many by compiling a 14-1 record through the home and away season to claim the minor premiership. Bond would suffer a 31-point loss to Jimboomba in the 2011 Grand Final. The club was then transferred to the newly created SEQAFL Division 4 South league which was a combination of former Summerland Australian Football League teams mixed with Gold Coast clubs.

Bond would again reach the Grand Final in 2012 but lightning would strike twice as the Bull Sharks fell to Tweed Coast by 44 points. 2013 saw the Bull Sharks moved their home games to the newly created Australian rules football field at the university campus. Affectionately known as the "Canal" however a disappointing season saw the club eliminated in the first round of the finals to the the Ballina Bomber. However the 2014 season would prove a successful season for Bond as the club claimed a second minor premiership, losing only one game during the season. The club went on to win the 2014 QAFA (B) South premiership, defeating Tweed Coast to claim the first premiership in the club's short history.

As a result of their 2014 successes, the Bull Sharks were promoted to the QAFA (A) division and impressively claimed another minor premiership in 2015, going undefeated in the home and away season. The club went on to win the 2015 QAFA (A) Grand Final against the South East Suns and in doing so made it back-to-back premierships in separate divisions. This success saw them promoted again to the QFA South competition for season 2016. 2015 also saw the launch of the women's team competing in the QWAFA competition. They compiled a 9-6 record in their inaugural season and made it to the preliminary final where they were defeated by the eventual premiers Zillmere.

The 2016 season was another extremely competitive one for the Bull Sharks. Both men's teams seniors and reserves made the finals for the first time in the club history. Unfortunately a heartbreaking loss in the preliminary final saw the Bull Sharks unable to chase three senior premierships in three years. The women's team proved extremely competitive again unlucky to miss finals after compiling a 8-6 record with a percentage over 100. 2016 also saw the announcement of a new competition structure for male community football in Queensland, the new structure saw the Bull Sharks competing in the Division 1 competition, the highest level reached by the club.
