The cost of administering football in Queensland will drop as a direct result of the Future of Football 2020+ reforms, reducing governing body fees for every participant and halving the FQ team fees for more than 500 teams in community competitions across the state.
Football Queensland South Coast clubs and participants will see a saving thanks to the reduction in registration fees announced today.
Football Queensland President Ben Richardson confirmed that governing body registration fees would be reduced in every region and the registration process would be simpler for participants.
“As promised, the once-in-a-generation Future of Football 2020+ reforms have resulted in the reduction of registration fees throughout Queensland,” said Richardson.
“Affordability was one of the four key areas we outlined in our Reform Process Implementation Plan, which was published in our Recommendations Paper in March.
“Football Queensland has delivered on this promise, implementing a streamlined approach to service delivery across the state, reducing duplication and unnecessary administrative costs by more than $1 million.
“Previously, participants paid a Football Queensland registration fee as well as a zone fee. Now, the zone fee has been eliminated and nearly 50 different tiers of zone registration fees have been reduced to just three across Queensland: MiniRoos, Juniors and Seniors.
“The pandemic has created difficulties across the Australian football economy, but here in Queensland we are proud to have lowered the cost of football while delivering record participation growth.”
FQ General Manager – SEQ Region Damien Bresic said he was delighted that the Future of Football 2020+ reforms had resulted in a significant saving for South Coast clubs and participants.
“Moving to a more streamlined administrative model has allowed us to deliver a saving in registration fees for South Coast clubs in 2022, which is a fantastic outcome for everyone involved in our local football community,” Bresic said.
“Not only will fees be reduced next year thanks to the implementation of the Future of Football 2020+ reforms, but our participants will also continue to benefit from access to high quality service delivery as frontline resources are bolstered.
“Improving the affordability of our game in this way is great news for our region and for football as a whole, and I look forward to seeing even more participants from the South Coast join our game in 2022.”
