Anticipation builds for PS4 NPL Queensland

The PlayStation 4 NPL Queensland 2017 Season is set to kick off with a bang on 25 February as 10 teams do battle in a huge opening night of action.

Football Queensland today confirmed the fixture schedule for the fifth season of Queensland's elite 12-team men's competition, which forms part of the national second tier.

A blockbuster Saturday night serving of five matches will light up Round 1, while reigning champions Redlands United commence their title defence away to Sunshine Coast FC the following afternoon.

The Red Devils famously broke their silverware drought in dramatic fashion last September as two goals in the final five minutes denied FNQ FC Heat their own maiden Grand Final victory.

The Cairns-based club will get its shot at revenge in Round 8 when they host the season's first Grand Final rematch at Barlow Park.

Brisbane Strikers, who claimed their inaugural PS4 NPL Queensland premiership before being bundled out at the Semi-Final stage by Redlands last season, will debut under new boss Sean Lane away to Western Pride on opening night.
