2024 FQ Provisional Declaration for Girls’ Advanced Junior Leagues

Football Queensland has confirmed the Provisional Declaration of Leagues for Under 11 to Under 17 FQ Academy Leagues for advanced junior girls in 2024.

The release of the Provisional Declaration of Leagues follows the completion of the FQ Club Development Unit’s extensive Club Assessment process which observes, measures and assesses over 1,500 data points across 75 different criteria for each of the FQ Academy clubs.

“2023 has been a wonderful year for women’s football as we hosted the biggest ever edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup, and Football Queensland is continuing to record strong growth in female participation as more women and girls join our game each year,” FQ CEO Robert Cavallucci said.

“As we work towards our target of 50/50 gender parity in participation by 2027, Football Queensland recognises the importance of fostering strong female programs within our clubs to provide junior girls with the best possible environment for their development and progression as players.

“FQ’s Club Assessment process continues to form the basis for the composition, design and rank of advanced junior leagues for both boys and girls, with the assembly of these leagues built around each club’s Club Rank Score.

“As we release the Provisional Declaration of Leagues for advanced junior girls, we’re pleased to acknowledge the work of our FQ Academy clubs who continue to make positive progress in the development of their female junior programs and congratulate them on their commitment to improving junior player development outcomes.”

A club’s participation in FQ Academy leagues for the 2024 season is contingent upon confirmation of a club’s FQ affiliation, and approval and compliance with various conditions (mandatory or otherwise) contained within FQ advanced junior participation licence agreements. Participation is not guaranteed to any club in any league until the final Declaration of Leagues is made by FQ and the club is invited to complete a licence agreement. Some clubs’ Rank Score may be still under review.
