One of the men accused of peddling toxic drugs on the Gold Coast that led to the death of a Victorian country footballer has faced court.

Bradley Allan Morgan, 24, and a 21-year-old man were arrested last month after more than 20 people needed medical treatment after consuming the drugs, with 27-year-old Riki Stephens dying a week later.

The amateur footballer was on an end-of-season trip to the Gold Coast when he became unwell after taking what police believe was a cocktail of hallucinogenic substances.

Toxicology results indicated Mr Stephens had ingested a mixture of MDMA and a synthetic version of LSD known as N Bomb or N-BOMe.

Police have since stated all the victims believed they were taking ecstasy.

Morgan, who has been charged with supplying a dangerous drug, has had his matter adjourned until November 29.

His co-accused is set to face court on November 16.
