UPDATE (30 November 2017): The Statewide Facilities Strategic Plan Questionnaire has now closed. We received a fantastic response (253 clubs responded out of a possible 270), and the results will now be collated into the final Statewide Facilities Strategic Plan, which will be completed in early 2018.
Football Queensland, in partnership with the Queensland Government, is currently preparing a Statewide Facilities Strategic Plan to identify and prioritise football facility needs across Queensland for the next five years, to effectively drive the future of our sport forward.
We have consulted football clubs, zones, local councils and government authorities across the state to gather information regarding existing infrastructure and future facility desires.
The initial consultation phase of the project included a short online questionnaire for clubs and a planning workshop with Football Queensland’s 10 zones.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why are we preparing this plan?
The Statewide Facilities Strategic Plan is a Football Queensland initiative designed to identify and prioritise football facility needs across Queensland for the next five years and to improve the quality of evidence-based decision making in the sport.
How will information be gathered?
Updates regarding existing club infrastructure, as well as desires for the future, will initially be gathered through an online planning questionnaire. We are seeking one response per club and your management committee should ideally sit down together to complete the questionnaire. We will also work with FFA, FQ zones, local councils, and facility managers to collect additional information as required.
What will the information be used for?
Information will be used to identify local, regional and state trends, and will provide the foundation for the development of the Football Queensland Statewide Facilities Strategic Plan 2017 – 2021. Information collected during consultation will ensure Football Queensland can cater for continued growth in participation and provide a better experience for all involved in football.
