Issue Gold Coast City FC with a QPL Licence

Gold Coast City FC is one of the Gold Coast’s highest performing clubs, finishing second on the ladder in 2017, playing in the FFA cup and with some of their players even representing Queensland. In October 2017 Gold Coast City FC separated from Palm Beach Soccer Club after Palm Beach decided to hand back the NPL licence to Football Queensland. Gold Coast city FC had already trialled and selected approx 150 children to play in this elite competition so applied to Football Queensland for an NPL licence. Football Queensland rejected the application for both an NPL licence or a QPL licence, leaving 150 kids to either miss out on playing their loved sport of soccer or fading back into the community football program and being unable to further their skills. Some of these families have relocated to the Gold Coast from other states to play and represent Gold Coast City at great expense. All of these children and their families have been absolutely devastated by this decision and need our help! Footballs Queensland is the only government body that can help find a solution to allow these kids to play the elite soccer competition that they have trained, trialled and worked so hard for Please stand with these kids and their families, OUR FAMILIES, and send a clear message that Gold Coast City deserves to stay in the game!
