More Queenslanders than ever before will have the chance to play at a semi-professional level with Football Queenslands expansion of the state’s elite player pathway.
From 2018, Football Queensland has introduced a new 14-team second tier competition beneath the PlayStation® 4 National Premier Leagues (NPL) Queensland.
The competition will be known as the Queensland Premier League (QPL) and will enable promotion and relegation between the state’s top two tiers.
Following the 2018 season, two teams will be relegated from NPL and two teams promoted from FQPL, based only on First Team results.
This change provides a level playing field for all NPL and FQPL First Teams across Queensland.
The groundbreaking developments follow wide-ranging feedback from players, coaches, parents, clubs, Football Federation Australia and further stakeholders and are based on the recommendations of a dedicated review committee.
