AFL Victoria is pleased to announce the release of its Football Facilities Development Strategy which outlines the organisation’s role in facility provision across Victoria.

The document, titled “Growing the Heartland – Football Facilities Development Strategy”, provides a planned approach to the provision of infrastructure across the state, with a focus on establishing state-wide planning systems and strategic directions between 2017 and 2022.

With over 1,100 football clubs, more than 6,000 teams, over 410,000 participants, 78,000+ volunteers, and over 1,050 grounds used every year to facilitate football programs and competitions, Victoria is football’s heartland.
