Principle VIII - Survey

A major challenge for the professional leagues remains how best to effectively capitalise on football’s market advantage as Australia’s largest club-based participation sport and to convert a good portion of the game’s 2 million participants into ‘fans’ – currently, less than 7% of these are members of an A-League or W-League club.

Given the current circumstances and financial realities confronting Australian football, it is prudent to consider a new model to operate the professional leagues that builds on the work of, and has regard to the pros and cons of the current model.
