About

The Sports Federation of Queensland, trading as QSport, is the representative body for organised, affiliated sport in Queensland and by dint of its extensive membership of mainly State sporting organisations representative of their sporting activity throughout Queensland, is accepted by government as the industry peak body for sport in the State. Its mission is to enhance the development of sport in Queensland by working to promote and sustain interest in the development of organised sport in the State by:

  • providing members with forums for the exchange of information, advice and assistance, where appropriate
  • formulating policies on any subject pertaining to sport by the collection and collation of the views of members and presenting both the majority and minority view to any other organisation, institution or body governmental, semi-governmental or otherwise as appropriate
  • assisting in the coordination of broad, long term planning for sport in the State
  • assisting in the coordination of optimum use of sports facilities and other sporting resources in the State
  • seeking and identifying direct or indirect funding sources which could be made available for the development of sport in the State, aiming to ensure that these funds are put to their most effective use
  • promoting its role and that of sport by, amongst other things, the establishment and presentation of awards of merit or any similar form of recognition for skill, service and ability QSport is analogous to the Sports Federations of other Australian States and Territories which collectively form Community Sport Australia Ltd.

With government support and sponsorship declining by over $50,000 from 2013 to 2014, QSport is turning now towards philanthropic support to help bridge the gap for its annual program to support State sporting organisations to build organisational capacity to maintain and enhance community sports participation. Specifically, garnering such support from donors for an annual Sport Awards / Hall of Fame promotion and recognition program will enable the message of the value of sport and engagement in it to be communicated appropriately within the sporting system and via media to the wider Queensland community, engaging not only players but also officials, paid and voluntary, in the 6,000 plus sporting clubs in Queensland.
