Principle IX - Survey

The nineth survey based on reducing ‘the cost of football and securing the future of the game’ is now live. 

The focus of Principle IX is to ensure that football becomes more open and accessible to the Australian community and that cost does not remain a barrier to participation.


There is a strong desire for football in Australia to be a sport which is affordable for all and should be accessed anytime, by anyone, anywhere, by whatever means available.

It must encourage mass participation and provide the right architecture for those that wish to transition into elite fooball, the ability to do so without unnecessary barriers.
