Round 7 Results:
Reminder for all Xbox Juniors participants
All Xbox Juniors participants are reminded that starting this round (Round 8), the playing window for the Xbox Juniors competition will change to a seven day window with all deadlines at 11:59pm each Sunday, instead of each Wednesday and Sunday as previously.
This means that for the remainder of the First Group Stage, Xbox Juniors participants will play multiple games within each match window.
Xbox Juniors participants may play their matches for the upcoming playing window in any order, as long as they do not play any matches that are outside of the current playing window.

New Match Deadlines – Xbox Juniors First Group Stage
Why have these deadlines been changed?
The new deadlines for the Xbox Juniors will prevent participants from having multiple byes for an extended period of time if they are faced with a number of byes in the final rounds of the First Group Stage, after some players were removed from the competition.
The deadline change will also allow for the Xbox Juniors to finish the first stage of the competition at the same time as both PS4 competitions, so participants from other competitions will not be required to wait a number of weeks to commence the next group stage of the tournament.
Removal of players from the FQ E-Series
A number of players across all four competitions have been removed from the FQ E-Series after failing to complete three consecutive matches or attempt to contact their opponent on three occasions.
This means that all players will now record a bye for upcoming fixtures when facing an opponent who has been removed from the competition. For this reason, all matches previously recorded as a 3-0 win due to a forfeit of a player who has been removed will now show as a bye instead to ensure consistency across the rounds. SportsTG has been updated accordingly.
Sending Video Clips
We want to share the action from the FQ E-Series, so we encourage players to record and provide short clips from their matches to Football Queensland which may be used to create highlight reels, goal packages, funny videos and more.
