Rural and community football and netball members and supporters seek to have the Minister for Sport, Mr Martin Pakula, appoint an independent body:

"REVIEW THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN AFL VIC AND RURAL/COMMUNITY FOOTBALL/NETBALL CLUBS"

The terms of reference are:

1.  AFL Vic is out of tune with community expectations and is failing to provide leadership, direction and education to rural and community clubs.   Our outcome is to: 

HAVE AFL VIC LISTEN TO GRASSROOTS PARTICIPANTS.

2.  AFL Vic is driving costs up which cannot be sustained by rural and community football/netball clubs.  Our outcome is to: 

HAVE THE COST OF VOLUNTEER BASED CLUBS ON A SHARED BASIS WITH AFL VIC.

3.  AFL Vic fails to recognise the importance of community and the need to have strong football/netball clubs who galvanise communities.  Our outcome is: 

HAVE AFL VIC SUPPORT COMMUNITIES IN BUILDING STRONG RELATIONSHIPS WITHIN COMMUNITIES

4.  The AFL fails to adequately fund community football/netball clubs from the $50.4 million profit in made in 2018.  Our outcome is:

HAVE AFL VIC MAKE GREATER INVESTMENTS IN RURAL COMMUNITY FOOTBALL AND PROVIDE MORE FUNDING

5.  AFL Vic does not consult and hear the “voice of the bush” and decisions are made without true consultation.  Our outcome is: 

HAVE LOCAL PEOPLE REPRESENTED AT ALL TIMES WITH DECISIONS MADE BY LOCAL PEOPLE FOR THE GOOD OF THE LOCAL COMMUNITIES.

All members of football / netball clubs need to push for a better outcome from AFL Vic.  By signing this petition you are advancing your opportunity for a strong and viable club into the future.

IT IS OUR RIGHT FOR A BETTER OUTCOME
