Fresh teams and star players are set to inject increased excitement into the South East Queensland (SEQ) Futsal Premier League when the 2020 season kicks off on Saturday, 14 November.
The satellite round format introduced last year will be carried over and expanded in 2020 as all junior, youth and senior matches take place at Nissan Arena in Brisbane over seven action-packed matchdays.
Each age group – from Under 12 to Open Men and Open Women – will compete for ladder positions throughout the five-week regular season leading into a huge Finals Day on 19 December.
The release of the full fixture, which is now available on SportsTG, follows on from the publication of Football Queensland’s (FQ) 2020-2022 Futsal Strategy, which details a strong and clear direction for the game in Queensland.
“It’s very pleasing and great for our futsal players and clubs that we’ve been able to schedule in a full SEQ Futsal Premier League season despite the obvious challenges to the calendar with COVID-19,” FQ Futsal Administrator Trevor Edwards said.
“I’m so excited that we now have 10 teams in the Open Women’s division, up from six last season. The Open Men’s competition has also grown from five teams to seven and should be extremely competitive.
“We now have more than 70 boys, girls, men’s and women’s teams in total competing across the nine age groups, which is a terrific number.
“Having all these teams playing games at a centralised venue in Nissan Arena means each matchday will be an exciting and entertaining prospect for spectators.”
At the senior level, Sunshine Coast Wave will be the club to beat after topping the ladder in both the Open Men’s and Open Women’s competitions last season.
National Premier Leagues (NPL) Queensland stars Sofie Persson and Corey Sewell were among the club’s leading lights, scoring 15 and nine goals respectively.
