Football Central Queensland (known as Football CQ or simply FCQ) is the largest of 10 zones in Queensland operating under the banner of Football Queensland to deliver and govern football and futsal from junior players through to seniors. The zone has been tasked with operating competitions in both Gladstone and Rockhampton since 2010 while working in partnerships with Competition Administrators in Biloela, Blackwater, Emerald, Longreach and on the Capricorn Coast.
Geographically the zone reaches south from Gladstone, north to Rockhampton, east to Yeppoon and west to Longreach. Most of the zone’s nearly 4000 participants (2016/2017 figures) play in competitions in the larger centres of Gladstone and Rockhampton. All centres operate their own independent stand alone competitions while senior clubs from Emerald, Gladstone, Rockhampton and Yeppoon participate in two divisions in the CQ Premier League. Competitive aged juniors and seniors from the Capricorn Coast Club play in Rockhampton competitions while the club hosts its own MiniRoos fixtures. Competitions in Gladstone and Rockhampton are overseen from the Rockhampton head office with a dedicated Venue Manager assisting in Gladstone from Gerald Mylne Park (Palm Drive).
In terms of governance, the zone is currently undergoing a transition following the dissolution of its executive committee in early 2017. A planned move to operate the zone as a Limited Company by Guarantee will be overseen by Football Queensland in early 2018.
