Football Queensland CEO Geoff Foster on the continued growth of Australian soccer

Football Queensland - Geoff Foster

As a trained accountant who spent most of his working life in manufacturing, it’s been an unexpected journey for Geoff Foster, CEO of Football Queensland.

With a large family that includes three sons and a daughter, and a grandfather to five granddaughters and a grandson, he’s had a long association with the game through his kin. When originally getting his kids into football, he was surprised at the negativity of the parenting and coaching in the sport, leading to his involvement and
eventual ascension to its highest position in the state.

Geoff takes time out of his busy schedule to discuss the unique challenges of managing such a large state, the benefits
of the sport, and corporate opportunities to support its growth.
