Northern NSW Football, in conjunction with Football NSW has released a “Football Infrastructure Strategy” document that is an instrument created to provide tangible evidence to support the case for significant investment to be made in facilities during the next 10 years (i.e. leading up to 2030).
The surge in the number of young players wanting to play football is expected to be given more impetus in the lead up to the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup and the Football Infrastructure Strategy is designed to ensure that the game responds to the demands of progressing the investment into more and better quality facilities.
Locally, Football Far North Coast continues to evolve more professional modes of collecting data relevant to activity in this region. The document attached provides an overview of the 2020 season that despite being significantly impeded due to covid-19, continues to show that football remains the most dominant teams sport. FFNC congratulates each member club for the work done by committed volunteers every year. These efforts are demonstrated in many ways and the work done to secure grant funding and to engage positive relationships with each tier of government, are key measures that help to drive a collective investment in facilities at each respective club.
The state-wide infrastructure strategy document paints a picture of where the game sits within NSW and we invite clubs to read through the document to put a context into where your club sits in various measures and to consider what opportunities exist to enhance the participation experience at club level.
