Football Queensland has strengthened the women’s game with the appointment of Kerry Hammersley as Female Participation Officer.
It’s a three horse race at the top of the NPLW ladder at the moment, but round eight showed the mid-table has the ability to snap at the heals of the front-runners.
The NPLW ladder is beginning to take shape after round seven, with the top four stamping their claims while mid-table teams showing they have potential to challenge.
The Matildas are the toast of Australian sport at the moment, with the side’s meteoric rise up the official FIFA rankings to number four. Combine that with a side full of talent and personality, and it’s a recipe for continual success as the next generation has a strong standard to look up to.

The wait is finally over. The opening round of the NPLW commenced last weekend giving us an opportunity to gauge the level of the teams in this year’s competition. Early suggestions are that the title will be a race in five with the remaining teams looking to establish themselves and build a foundation for future years.
Football Queensland is pleased to announce the release of the 2018 National Premier League (NPL), National Premier League Women (NPLW) and Football Queensland Premier League (FQPL) first team competition draws.
The draw comes after extensive consultation with clubs and stakeholders.
The eagerly awaited announcement provides a cracking opening weekend in the NPL, with Brisbane Strikers FC against Western Pride FC, with the premiers to face the grand final champions at Perry Park, on Saturday February 3 at 6pm.
