Football Queensland (FQ) is pleased to announce its renewed partnership with the Brisbane Paralympic Football Program (BPFP), with Meakin Park set to become the new home of the Queensland Para-Football team.
“This partnership achieves a key strategic objective to provide opportunities for Queenslanders to participate in football, regardless of age, ability or life stage,” said FQ CEO Robert Cavallucci.
“The BPFP will work with FQ to promote the development pathway of Para-Football and all abilities football within the Queensland football community.
“In addition, FQ will support a Queensland team to participate in the 2021 National Para-Football Championships in Sydney later this year. This will be the first time in five years that a Queensland team has competed at Nationals.
“FQ is committed to providing the same level of administrative and operational support to the Queensland Para-Football Team as it does to all other state youth teams each year.”
The Brisbane Paralympic Football Program was founded in 2006 by director Jay Larkin and has been FQ’s endorsed Inclusive Football Provider for more than a decade.
“We have had a partnership with FQ for many years, and I have no doubt that this renewed commitment will take the BPFP to the next level,” said Larkin.
“We are delighted that FQ will help us promote all abilities football through their media and marketing team as well as providing coaching and financial support to send our team to Nationals.
“It is an exciting time to be involved in all abilities football and after years of hard work in Brisbane we are determined to grow the game in partnership with FQ to new markets around the state.
“Football is Queensland’s game of choice, for all, for life, and we can’t wait to get started at FQ headquarters at Meakin Park.”
