Football Queensland has today confirmed the Provisional Declaration of Leagues for FQ’s premier and Metro Men leagues in 2024.
The Provisional Declaration of Leagues includes the proposed composition of men’s leagues across the NPL Queensland, FQPL 1 and 2, and FQPL Metro competitions, constructed in accordance with and determined by the rules of competition and sporting merit.
“Following the implementation of Future of Football 2020+ competition reforms, the rollout of connected competitions across our three conferences is continuing to deliver benefits for players and teams throughout the Queensland football pyramid,” FQ CEO Robert Cavallucci said.
“2023 brought another year of strong competition across our state’s premier leagues culminating in a blockbuster day of Grand Finals at Suncorp Stadium, while the FQPL Metro competitions delivered plenty of action throughout the season.
“We now turn our focus to next year with today’s release of the Provisional Declaration of Leagues, which is based on the finishing positions from the 2023 season and the movement, merger and withdrawal of some teams throughout the Metro Men pyramid.
“As preparations for 2024 continue, clubs are currently undertaking the affiliation and licensing application process to ensure they comply with the relevant criteria in order to be considered for or awarded a position in their attributed league.”
A club’s appearance in the ‘Provisional Declaration of Leagues’ is not confirmation of inclusion in the ‘Final Declaration of Leagues’. A club’s participation in FQPL leagues for the 2024 season is contingent upon final league design, affiliation confirmation, approval and compliance of a variety of conditions (mandatory or otherwise) contained within various participation licence agreements. No participation is guaranteed to any club in any league until the Final Declaration of Leagues is issued by FQ.
