Football Queensland (FQ) is recognised by both the State and Federal Governments and Football Australia as the governing body for association football (soccer) in Queensland.
We are a member of the national governing body Football Australia and, through this connection, are affiliated with Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA).
As the governing body, we are charged with all facets of football in Queensland across semi-professional, amateurs, women, youth, juniors, coaches and referees and are responsible for the administration, promotion and delivery of football and futsal in the state.
We are a not-for-profit organisation run by a Board of Directors (elected by football stakeholders made up from zone representatives) and receive funding through membership and club affiliation fees, government grants and corporate sponsorship.
Queensland’s Home of Football and FQ headquarters are located at Meakin Park in Slacks Creek.
