The Queensland Touch Association was established 20 January 1979, when it was agreed to affiliate with the newly formed Australian Touch Association (2 December 1978), known as Touch Football Australia.
The Queensland Touch Association became incorporated in September 1986 under the Associations Incorporation Act to be formally known as the Queensland Touch Association Incorporated.
In 2013, the Queensland Touch Football business name was registered, and the Association formally operates under this banner today.
