AFL Victoria welcomes the launch of the CMSport program by the Victorian Government, an initiative which aims to increase sporting opportunities for young people from diverse backgrounds.

Through CMSport, the Centre for Multicultural Youth will deliver training in inclusion and diversity for sporting associations, regional sports assemblies and local sporting clubs across the state, and assist with the development of mentoring opportunities for multicultural young people.

AFL Victoria looks forward to building on its existing commitment to programs that focus on multicultural and diverse groups, and will work with the Centre for Multicultural Youth on how further outcomes can be delivered in football through the CMSport initiative.

CMSport was launched by the Minister for Multicultural Affairs and Youth, Ros Spence, on Tuesday.

“Sport provides so many opportunities for young people to build their skills and confidence, and this investment will open up those opportunities to more young Victorians,” said Ms Spence.

“The past 18 months have been incredibly challenging for local sporting clubs, and this will make sure all Victorian young people can enjoy community sport as we open up again.”
