The Queensland State League, often abbreviated to the QSL, was a men's semi-professional soccer league in the Australian state of Queensland. The league was created by the state’s governing body for the sport of association football, Football Queensland, in 2008, to fill the gap between the national league (A-League) and the various city and regional leagues in the State. It was replaced in 2013 with the National Premier League Queensland.

The QSL was conducted across Queensland during the winter season and administered by Football Queensland. The league replaced the State Cup, which was held from 2004 to 2007 as an end-of-season tournament for teams representing the various regional zones. The QSL was intended as the showcase for the state’s elite talent, to provide a pathway from club football to the national ranks and a means of bringing association football more into the media spotlight. Sponsored by the Hyundai Motor Company the league was officially known as the Hyundai Queensland State League.

Clubs[edit]

For season 2010, Olympic, Redlands City Devils and Logan United did not re-nominate to stay in the league (Olympic FC and Redlands City Devils elected to return to the Brisbane Premier League (BPL) competition and Logan United disbanded). Gold Coast Stars and Southern Cross United joined the league for the first time for the 2011 season. Although Southern Cross United withdrew from the competition on the 19th April 2011 after only six rounds of the 2011 season.
