• SANFL Facilities Strategy & Project Registration

    The SANFL Infrastructure Plan 2022-2032 provides a 10-year road map that addresses the planning, provision and enhancement of football facilities, and identifies the areas of greatest need for investment.

    Using a sound evidence base of facility audits, existing participant and likely market demand data, the plan strives to identify the current infrastructure gaps and future requirements needed to better support Australian football across SA.

    SANFL has also created a registration of interest process, where clubs and asset owners can let us know about works required at your venue.

    The registration of interest has been designed to collect essential information to build a database of projects. This will enable SANFL to present your project to relevant funding partners and to advocate the need for investment.

  • AFL Ken Gannon Community Football Facility Awards

    The AFL Ken Gannon Community Football Facilities Awards annually recognise best practise in community football facility development across Australia, along with the people, clubs and other stakeholders driving our best projects.

    In a decorated career across many areas of the code, Ken spent much of his last decade of his career developing the AFL’s interest and partnerships in the community facilities space, leading outcomes related to over 800 community football facility projects in that period.

    These projects area remarkable examples of best practice that aim to provide well positioned, welcoming, fit for purpose football facilities that support our growing game’s strategic priorities.

    South Australian finalists include Max Amber Sportsfield (2022), Norwood (2021), Whyalla (2020) and Mount Barker (2019).
