Preferred Facility Guidelines

The AFL industry strive to support the provision of well positioned, welcoming, accessible, fit for purpose football facilities that support our growing gameís strategic priorities.  Our sportís need for facilities continues to expand to support participation growth and the changing profile of participation.

Increasing the capacity of grounds and pavilions and the development of facilities that welcome all participants and umpires has never been more important. 

We are heavily focused on developing the right plans in collaboration with Councils, clubs and all other stakeholders in each project. When done well, this maximises any returns on investment through increased participation levels, club sustainability and community wellbeing.  Our sport is confident the 2019 AFL Preferred Facilities Guidelines will be an effective tool that assists us all to achieve this more often.
