Who is the Townsville Fire


The Townsville Fire enjoys the largest footprint in the Women’s National Basketball League

The Townsville Fire is the most successful professional sporting team in Northern Australia

Notably, the Fire is one of the few teams with a community-based ownership structure that has demonstrated remarkable success. Established more than two decades ago, The Townsville Fire has consistently led the Northern Australian athletic community in terms of sporting excellence. The team secured its fourth Championship in 2023, a testament to its sustained dominance.

The Fire’s connection with the community is a source of pride, and the team serves as strong female role models for the region. As the first and only community-owned club in the WNBL, The Townsville Fire is inspired continuously to innovate and entertain as it endeavors to lead the way in Women’s Sport.
