In 2018, Football Queensland introduced a new second-tier competition beneath the National Premier League (NPL) Queensland competition, the QPL (Queensland Premier League). Holland Park Hawks FC was successful in obtaining an FQPL Licence.
Changes have been made by FQ to these competitions each year since 2018. In 2022 the senior FQPL program will include the First Team and the U23s. The Youth Program will include the 13s through 18s.
- Senior FQPL is relegated and promoted based on the results of the First Team only.
- Youth NPL is subject to a detailed assessment process each year by FQ. An FQ algorithm based on the results of this assessment and team results determines whether the club plays the NPL Academy or NPL Development League.
