Football Queensland (FQ) has launched the FQ Facilities Hub, a dedicated space to house the release of a series of new infrastructure-specific facilities guides. The guides are designed to provide guidance and support to clubs across Queensland on the development and upgrade of facilities and infrastructure.
“We’re delighted to launch our Football Queensland Facilities Hub, a go-to spot for our clubs and volunteers across the state to access up to date and relevant information covering a variety of infrastructure and facility areas,” FQ CEO Robert Cavallucci said.
Designed to support the recently released state-wide Strategic Infrastructure Plan, FQ has released the first three in a suite of facilities guides which will be housed on the Facilities Hub; Football Facilities – Building Development Guide, Football Club Facility Development – Project Planning, and the Field Dimensions and Pitch Marking Guide.
“Today Football Queensland is also pleased to release three guides that have been developed to support our clubs, ahead of the release of a further two documents to assist Queensland clubs and venues in the development and upgrade of facilities. We’d like to acknowledge the significant work carried out by Football Victoria in the development of these facilities guides,” Cavallucci added.
“As the largest club-based participation sport in the state, infrastructure is vital to supporting the ongoing growth of our game here in Queensland, and only with appropriate infrastructure and facilities can we continue to deliver enjoyable participation experiences for all involved in football.”
FQ President Ben Richardson also commented on the release, highlighting the federation’s commitment improving the state’s footballing infrastructure as a long-term strategy.
“Football Queensland’s commitment to developing facilities of a high standard across the state was recently demonstrated with the release of the Strategic Infrastructure Plan, which outlines the priority infrastructure and funding required to drive progress towards the state’s critical facility needs,” FQ President Ben Richardson said.
“Within the Clubs and Community Pillar of Football Queensland’s Strategic Plan, we have also identified a focus on designing minimum standards for clubs, and making the job of the thousands of dedicated volunteers around the state easier.
“We’re confident that this new Facilities Hub on the Football Queensland website will support our clubs across Queensland in the development of appropriate infrastructure, while facilitating the growth of the game in the years to come.”
