Football Queensland has today announced its decision to offer Western Pride a PlayStation 4 NPL Women’s Queensland licence.
This decision was reached after new information was presented by Pride, regarding the significant $36 million sports facilities development in Springfield Central.
The information required consideration due to its extraordinary nature, and FQ strives to make decisions based on what is best for football in the state.
FQ CEO Geoff Foster has worked closely with Pride and Ipswich City Council to further explore the information and its bearing on Pride’s application.
“This is a positive outcome for football in the region and it was encouraging to see the weight of support coming from the community, Ipswich City Council and Acting Mayor Paul Tully,” said Foster.
“Their ongoing support will prove invaluable as Pride continue to strengthen their women’s football program.”
FQ looks forward to seeing the positive impact the Springfield development has on women’s football in years to come.
The format of the PS4 NPL Women’s Queensland competition is currently being finalised for the 2018 season. FQ will announce further details as they are confirmed.
