About Us

Welcome

Welcome to the official website of Queensland Cricket, the XXXX GOLD Queensland Bulls and the Konica Minolta Queensland Fire. The Brisbane Heat are also a part of QC and maintain their own website (brisbaneheat.com.au).

The QC website is 'home' to the enormous Queensland cricketing 'family', encompassing everyone and everything from the Queensland Cricket Board of Directors and the Bulls and Fire, through to grassroots volunteers and the youngest of grade players, and endeavours to answer any and every question imaginable from cricketing enthusiasts and Bulls fans world-wide.

It has been based on the ongoing values and philosophies of Queensland Cricket, which exists for the benefit of cricket and cricketers at all levels.

Queensland Cricket's Memorandum of Articles can be accessed here.
