Belconnen United FC (aka BUFC or Blue Devils) is the premier league club in the Belconnen region, Canberra. The Belconnen United Football Club (then ‘Soccer’ Club) was formed in 1970 as the new Canberra district of Belconnen was establishing.
We cater to senior men’s and women’s (Premier League, State League and Masters’ teams), Premier League boys (12s, 14s & 16s), both boys & girls youth development programs, and Premier League Futsal teams.
