Football Queensland is recognised by both the State and Federal Governments and Football Australia as the governing body for soccer, futsal and beach soccer in Queensland, Australia.

Tracing its history back to the establishment of the Anglo-Queensland Football Association, in 1884, Football Queensland now has more than 250,000 participants and 308 clubs across the state.

Role

Football Queensland is the sole governing body for football in Queensland with nine regional offices throughout the state:

These regional offices were established in 2021 as part of the Future of Football 2020+ Reforms to better reflect the geography and strategic direction of the regions throughout Queensland. During the reform journey, the local football community was invited to engage in a six-month state-wide consultation process based on improving four key areas of the game: Governance, Administration, Competitions and Affordability.[1]

Each regional office has a local administrator and committee members which are elected by clubs to meet quarterly to discuss functional and geographical matters.

Competitions

Football Queensland organises men’s and women’s competitions including the National Premier Leagues Queensland (NPL), which acts as the top tier of football in the state.

The Football Queensland Premier League (FQPL) sits below the NPL and connects the entire state via three conferences: the SEQ Conference, Central Conference and Northern Conference.[2]

The NPL Queensland Men sits within the SEQ Conference.
