Football Queensland (FQ) has commenced its search to unearth the state’s next FIFA 20 superstar with today’s launch of the first ever Football Queensland E-Series.
Expressions of interest for Round 1 of the Active Community Infrastructure initiative will close next Friday, 6 December.
Football Queensland (FQ) and National Australia Bank (NAB) have partnered to grow football across the state with financial help to both football members and clubs.
The ‘We Pay, You Play’ initiative (**assisted by Nexus Partners) will give football members the opportunity to have their club registration covered and provide clubs with vital financial support.
If a registered football club member or club associate takes out a NAB home loan, investment loan or business loan, NAB will pay Football QLD a referral fee (via Nexus Partners) up to the value of 0.44% (inc GST) of the loan amount which will go towards paying your season registration fees. Any surplus amounts will go towards supporting your club.
How it works –
- Lodge a mortgage referral with your details via a dedicated online webform for Football Queensland clubs
- The inquiry will be directed to a senior lender at NAB (or your preferred local lender if known)
- If the loan is successful, NAB will pay Football QLD a referral fee via Nexus Partners who will pass on the fee to your local club. Example – For a successful loan of $350,000 NAB will pay a referral fee of up to $1400 (plus GST), which goes to your club.
- Your club will put this amount towards covering your season’s registration fees.
You don’t have to be a player either. All members and associates of clubs are eligible, in which case the whole fee would remain with the club.
The ‘We Pay, You Play’ initiative will provide funding to make football more affordable for players and families who have purchased a new home or refinances, as well as grow your club.
Football Queensland and NAB believe, just like your house, your football club is your home.

In a major coup, North Queensland is set to host a festival of football, with more than 3,000 people expected to descend on Mackay from July 8 through to 14 for the inaugural Football Queensland (FQ) Community Cup.
The FQ Community Cup will be hosted at Mackay Football Park with zones from around the state going through an identification process to select their representative teams.
The competition will provide an opportunity for the next generation of talent to compete in a state competition.
Football Queensland General Manager of Football Operations Brendon Boss said 80 teams will participate from across the state with over 1280 players expected.
“The FQ Community Cup will provide our National Premier Leagues (NPL) selectors with an avenue to identify developing players for NPL programs, as well as provide coach and referee education,” Mr Boss said.
“We anticipate in excess of 3,000 players, staff and spectators to travel to Mackay for the week-long event.
“We have received significant support from the Queensland Government and Mackay Regional Council.
“Our zones have been hugely supportive of the initiative and are excited at the prospect of a state-wide competition.”
The FQ Community Cup has been established due to the absence of junior elite competition in Far North Queensland, North West, North Queensland, Wide Bay and Central Queensland.
“Our regional areas produce top quality players and this tournament could identify the next Frank Farina, Mitch Langerak or Josh Brillante.”
Mr Boss said the competition will benefit all those involved, including the community of Mackay.
“Mackay is the perfect place to host this event, with the range of sporting infrastructure and top facilities available for players, as well as proximity to first class accommodation and leisure,” he said.
“The economic opportunity of such an event is a huge positive to any region and we could not be happier to bring this to Mackay.”
