GYMPIE'S A-grade sides in the Fraser Coast competition have been performing well since the inception of the new competition in 2012.

Columbia Club has been the high achiever this year and is currently sitting on top of the table on equal points with Doonvilla, which Columbia beat last year in the Mecano Cup.

Columbia spokesman Dave Arthur said the team had been in great form and winning well while on the road and at home.

He said Columbia striker Joel Bond had been in amazing early-season touch and was leading the golden boot competition.

In just two games Bond had scored six times, he said.

He opened his account with four against Gympie Diggers at home and then followed that up with two more against Sunbury.

Arthur said it was great for Gympie football to be playing in the competition and showing that Gympie Football was still competitive.

"We are finally getting success out of sides from Gympie," Arthur said.

He said he was hoping the competition would draw more people to One Mile to watch some quality games.

"It would be awesome to get heaps of people back down to One Mile," Arthur said.

Today Columbia will travel to Hervey Bay to take on Sandy Straits.

The home game in Gympie tonight at 7pm will be the match-up between Gympie Lions and United Warriors.

Pam Tindal, from Gympie Football, is encouraging football fans to get down to One Mile early.

She said it was a blockbuster day with the opening ceremony and march past from 8.30am and then all the junior games.

At 3pm the QSL will visit Gympie.

The Logan Strikers side will play the Bundy Spirit.

Following that game at 5pm will be the Gympie Fire under-19 side playing the Sunshine Coast Fire.
