Background

Formed 1966

Palm Beach Soccer Club were founded in 1966 as Palm Beach Currumbin Soccer Club. In 1965 the local Gold Coast Association football competition wanted a presence in Palm Beach and invited the team to join the local junior competitions. The first official playing strip was debuted in 1965 which was a plain T shirt that embossed with a single blue stripe.

When the club was first formed there was no official name and names such as Palm Beach Hotspurs and Palm Beach Pilchards were initially considered but Palm Beach Currumbin Soccer Club was voted the winner. In 1966 the club began wearing playing strip which was a white shirt emblazoned with a large blue vee.

In 1971 the team were relocated to Tugun and their official name was changed to the Palm Beach Currumbin Tugun Soccer Club. The Gold Coast Association decided in 1975 to begin a senior football competition and the following year Palm Beach entered their first senior team. In 1983 the club introduced the shark as the emblem and officially become the Palm Beach Sharks.

In 2000 the Sharks were invited to compete in the Brisbane-based State League. The Sharks would prove their worth in 2005 by capturing the minor premiership, the premier cup as well as finishing runner up in the championship. In 2008 the club withdrew from the Brisbane competition due to a lack of funds. In October 2012 it was announced that Football Federation Australia granted the Palm Beach Sharks a five year license into the newly formed Australian Premier League Queensland Conference along with teams from Brisbane, Moreton Bay, Rockhampton, Sunshine Coast and Townsville.

Palm Beach Sharks competed in the inaugural FFA Cup in 2014 and were one of the more succesful lower league teams in reaching the quarter finals.
