Football Queensland is pleased to announce the recruitment of Matt McKay as an ‘Appointed Director’ to the FQ Board.
In a stellar playing career, the former Socceroo and Brisbane Roar legend led the Roar to their first A-League Premiership and Championship in 2011 and holds the club’s record for league appearances.
After playing youth football with the QAS and AIS, McKay went on to feature in the National Soccer League for current NPL Queensland side Brisbane Strikers.
“Matt is a proud Queenslander and brings extensive knowledge of the football landscape and the player pathway in our state, as well as his unique experience as a player on the national and international stage,” FQ Chairman Ben Richardson said.
“We’re delighted to welcome Matt to the FQ Board, and his appointment is timely as Football Queensland implements new league structures to connect competitions across the state as part of the Future of Football 2020+ reforms.
“The FQ Board is confident that Matt will play an instrumental role as we strengthen community clubs, player development and opportunities for aspirational clubs by connecting the football pyramid in Queensland, and we look forward to working with him.”
