Football Queensland (FQ) is welcoming expressions of interest from futsal and football clubs across Queensland for the state-based F-League, a new conference-style futsal competition for men and women kicking off in March.
“In the 2020-2022 Futsal Strategy, Football Queensland outlined its plan to launch the F-League as part of our clear vision for futsal in Queensland,” FQ CEO Robert Cavallucci said.
“This new competition connects and integrates our futsal and football clubs while serving as the highest level of competitive futsal in Queensland.
“It opens up new opportunities for affiliated football clubs who meet certain criteria, to improve their club offering, increase their membership and get more kids playing futsal by establishing a futsal program with futsal-focused players.
“With Northern, Central and SEQ competition conferences planned, FQ is committed to unlocking the opportunity futsal presents to deliver participation growth throughout the state.”
The F-League is planned to replace the SEQ Futsal Premier League for men and women and will run throughout the year in an annual two-season format.
“This is an important step in the development of futsal in Queensland,” FQ Futsal Participation Officer Trevor Edwards said.
“The F-League enables futsal to flourish all year long as we build a stronger and more sustainable competition framework.”
