The Football Queensland Board has confirmed the state’s participation registration fees will remain unchanged for a fifth straight year in 2017.
No increases will be made to Queensland’s Member Federation Fee following the Board’s consideration of all financial implications.
In reaching its decision, the Board acknowledged external cost pressures on clubs as cause for Football Queensland to absorb any internal cost increases.
Football Queensland CEO Geoff Foster welcomed news of the registration freeze.
“The cost of football remains a primary concern and I commend the Board for recognising the impact of fee increases on participants and clubs,” Foster said.
“Clubs continue to face challenges and expenses including rising facility management and utility costs.
“The registration freeze will assist clubs to provide competitive registration packages to players next season.”
Football Queensland’s Member Federation Fee, outlined below alongside the National Registration Fee, is inclusive of insurance coverage for all registered participants under the FFA National Insurance Programme.
Additions to the fee structure are at the discretion of clubs, competition administrators and Zones.
Participants can find all imposed fees, levies and charges as part of their registration package in MyFootballClub – the national online registration system.
FEE BREAKDOWN – All fees are GST inclusive.
