Two news teams – Caloundra and Pacific Pines – round out the 18 clubs in the QFAW Division Two North and South competitions in season 2022.
The inception of QFAW Division One with reserves has seen the competition split back to north and south with no central league.
QFAW Competition Manager, Joanna Main, said it was a sign of female football continuing to strengthen in Southeast Queensland.
“While the last two seasons have been disrupted with postponed and cancelled games due to COVID, it’s fantastic to see that there’s still expansion in the community women’s space,” she said.
“Division One has been able to adopt a Seniors and Reserves format due to their participation growth, and Division Two will be welcoming Caloundra and Pacific Pines into their North and South competitions respectively.”
The competitions begin on April 23rd as part of the statewide ANZAC Round with Pacific Pines to make their maiden appearance against Redland-Victoria Point at McAuley Parade Oval. Beenleigh host Byron Bay, while Tweed Coast head south to Ballina.
In the QFAW Division 2 North space, Caloundra begin their campaign against Sandgate, Pine Rivers host Mayne, Alex Hills head north to Noosa, Moorooka meet Ipswich at home, while Jindalee take on Hinterland.
Labrador and North Shore both have byes.
A 17 round competition will play out in the lead up to the finals series starting on August 20th.
Sir Doug Nichols Round will be celebrated across Rounds five and six, while July 16th (Round 13) will mark Pride Round.
“In the north division, I think spectators will be in for a treat in Round Five with Ipswich and Noosa facing off in a Grand Final rematch. Both teams have been strong finals contenders for the last three seasons, and it’ll be interesting to see who takes the points this year,” said Main.
There was no Grand Final in 2021 in the QFAW Division 2 South due to COVID challenges and border closures.
