The Melbourne East Football Facilities Strategy provides the principles and strategic framework to support the future development, governance and growth of football in the Melbourne East Region. It also provides key strategic directions and recommendations, as well as identifying critical priorities and actions for Melbourne East Leagues and Clubs, AFL Victoria and project partner LGAs.
The Key Findings Report, updated in April 2019, provides an overview of key issues and focus areas identified through extensive research, analysis, facility investigation and consultation.
The Key Findings Report includes an overview of AFL and netball participation statistics and demographics for the Region, as well as commentary on the state of local leagues and clubs. An analysis of issues, opportunities and challenges impacting football across the Melbourne East Region is provided to inform future opportunities for facility improvement. Sports development opportunities, club structure, volunteer capacity, sport governance and competition structure were also considered in the Key Findings Report.
Relevant information from the Key Findings Report have been incorporated into the Melbourne East Football Facilities Strategy where required.
