The Whole of Football Plan, which was announced by FFA CEO David Gallop in September during his ‘State of the Game’ address, aims to improve all levels of the sport, from the grassroots to the elite levels, to eventually make football the biggest and most popular game in Australia.
The consultation process will seek to gain insights from all stakeholders regarding all facets of football, including:
- Elite player and coach development
- National teams
- Community football
- Facilities development
- National competitions
- Fan connections
- Commercial revenues
In David Gallop’s recent address he introduced his intention to create a National Plan for football.
