Ballymore Cup

 

Ballymore Cup is Queensland largest school boy rugby competition. Established for open school boy teams within the greater Brisbane region, the Ballymore Cup has quickly grown to become a state wide rugby competition. The Ballymore Cup provides schools from across the state with the opportunity to compete against other regional representatives to be crowned Ballymore Cup Champions.

 

In 2008 Mountain Creek State High school from the Sunshine Coast won its first Ballymore Cup title by beating Rockhampton Grammar School 11 – 0. If you would like to be involved in the 2009 Ballymore Cup competition please contact your regional development officer.

 

Ballymore Cup History and Milestones

The Ballymore Cup is an extension of the Metropolitan Cup that was established in 1999 as a knockout competition in Brisbane for secondary schools outside of the traditional nurseries of the game. From 1999 to 2002 the competition consisted of Metropolitan schools. 

In 2003 the Ballymore Cup expanded to include the Gold Coast, Darling Downs and Sunshine Coast regions. This growth has resulted in increased interest and an improved standard of competition.

The 2004 Ballymore Cup achieved the goal of providing a state-wide competition with participating schools experiencing integration between the traditional rugby union sporting districts.  The program provided an enjoyable and safe playing environment with schools divided into two divisions depending on their playing strength.

The establishment of a 2004 state-wide competition was a ground breaking year with 91 schools from North Queensland, South Queensland and Metropolitan schools all vying for a Super 8 place at Ballymore.

The Ballymore Cup continued to grow each year with over 140 schools contesting the 2007 Ballymore Cup Competition. The eventual winner was Sunshine Coast Grammar School who became the third consecutive regional school to win the Ballymore Cup Competition.
