Towards 2030

Our Direction

Towards 2030 provides our game, our stakeholders and partners with guidance and an aligned direction. It has been developed to provide certainty and security around our existing facility footprint and to identify the new and innovative opportunities we need to deliver to continue to grow and ensure Australian football is accessible to all.

Why Footy?

Australian football’s growth story is compelling and is being led by our thirteen-fold growth in female football participation over the past decade. Significant growth brings with it the challenge of providing the facilities we need, in the right locations to ensure all Australian’s can experience the game.

National Facility Priorities

The AFL, in conjunction with our State and Territory football and government partners, believe we have a responsibility to sustainably plan for Australia’s future.

Through this Plan, we have prioritised our critical facility needs and will align our investment to best address and support the delivery of community needs and to also meet government’s broader objectives.

Staged and shared investment is the key to success, and we know that when we invest, significant projects and outcomes are delivered.
