Strategic Plan

Football provides a fabric that connects players, families and communities across Western Australia. The importance of this connection underscores the importance of growing and developing football in Western Australia.

The West Australian Football Commission (WAFC) is the caretaker of football throughout the State and is responsible for the overall development of the game.

The WAFC Strategic Plan 2023 to 2025 aims to build on our strong foundations with a clear direction for the future of football in WA.

The strategy aims to align our organisation and the industry in order to grow football sustainably, increase the relevance of WA football and provide an opportunity for all Western Australians to engage in our great game.

Our vision is:

The game for all Western Australians

That vision emphasises that age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, levels of physical or mental ability or any other of the many characteristics which make up our diverse community provide no impediment to participation in the game.

Our way of life is constantly changing and the landscape of sport and football is no different. Our new strategy enables the WA football community to address the challenges that come with change whilst taking advantage of the opportunities change provides.

The WAFC Board has endorsed the following strategy and related timelines.
