Capital Football can today announce that for the second consecutive year there will be no increase to football registration fees in the ACT region.
For seven years prior to 2017 fees had risen each year, and the decision to hold the price of fees is a demonstration of Capital Football’s commitment to supporting the football community.
Moving forward, Capital Football will be committing increased funding and resources than previous years to a number of initiatives, all without an increase in registration fees.
These programs are ones that we believe will positively impact and shape participant experience and the promotion and growth of football in the region.
Capital Football CEO Phil Brown said he was excited to announce the no-increase for another year and continue to improve football in the ACT region.
“This is important for retaining current players and attracting new participants to football,” Brown said.
“That we will be able to lift the quality of our programs and create new ones is a great sign of our investment in, and commitment to the sport at all levels moving forward.”
The new programs are aimed at improving the football experience for participants in the ACT region, through inclusion programs and referee development to name just a few.
Live streaming of NPL and NPL Women’s will increase to help raise the profile of the leagues, and a facilities audit will be undertaken by Capital Football to help understand current gaps in the requirements for facilities and to inform improved advocacy with the ACT Government.
Capital Footballs inclusion programs will receive a big boost too, with more resources to be committed towards programs for participant of all abilities and indigenous participants too.
