The Football Facilities Audit is a landmark collaborative venture between Football NSW, Northern NSW Football and Capital Football. This initiative is designed to quantify the existing venues football utilises and the future facility needs of the sport across NSW and the ACT. The audit will capture the facility data from 1,200 football grounds and will be the catalyst for developing strategic facility proposals to submit to the Federal and State Governments.
The Audit will provide a vital insight into facility standards and future demands in the area. It will also guide the development of strategies to lobby government and ensure improved facilities for the largest participation sport in Australia are considered in government planning.
Capital Football CEO Phil Brown was full of praise for the collaborative nature of the facilities audit, saying “we would like to acknowledge the work Football NSW and the Northern NSW Football Federation have done in better understanding the facility needs of our sport, and thank them for inviting us to partner in this ground-breaking initiative”.
Capital Football will continue to working closely with stakeholders from clubs, schools and government to collect the information. Brown said “The audit is crucial for us to establish the current needs and future requirements of football in the region, and to better understand how we can facilitate the growth of the sport moving forward.”
At present, a purpose built online digital system is being constructed and it is envisaged a roll out of the audit will commence in April 2018.
