Football Queensland have announced sport governance experts DHW Simpson Advisory will conduct an independent review of the governance of football in the sunshine state.
The assessment will occur as part of the governing body’s Future of Football 2020+ consultation process.
The Future of Football 2020+ plan looks to address four key areas including governance, administration, competitions and affordability.
Governance expert Dale Wood will deliver the findings of the review.
“Dale Wood is highly regarded and well credentialed and is a major boost for the Future of Football 2020+ journey. Dale’s governance experience spans over 20 years in sport, having worked on major reform projects including the highly regarded 2003 Crawford Report into Australian football governance,” FQ CEO Robert Cavallucci said.
“The independent review will dive into the layers of the game’s governance in Queensland including their constitutions, congress and composition. The review will also consider Football Queensland’s board processes and procedures, board charters and by laws; along with lessons from good governance frameworks from other sporting organisations.
“Dale’s extensive experience in sport governance projects will bolster the outcomes for the future of football in the state as we work to deliver the benchmark in governance and the optimal outcome for the game in Queensland,” Cavallucci concluded.
The Future of Football 2020+ consultation process invites those involved in the game to provide feedback that will help shape the future of the sport.
Two club summits have already been held in Cairns and Townsville, with more events scheduled to take place in South West Queensland and Wide Bay.
