While footy is an unpredictable game, it requires a fair bit of planning. The most successful clubs establish a shared vision, mission statement, values and more, so click here to learn more. 

Facility Management

While over 3000 facilities are currently in use across Australia, this number continues to rise as our game continues to grow. Pretty soon, every corner of the country will be playing footy, so we’re focused on collaborating with councils, clubs and key stakeholders to ensure everyone has a place to play. 
Over the past five years, we’ve invested $24M into an estimated $340M worth of infrastructure projects. For more on facility management grants, click here (go to finance section in growth and Retention)

Risk Management and insurance

Before we play, we play it safe. We’ve developed a number of resources to help your club with risk management and insurance.
