2021 Constitution Reform Program

Football Victoria's Constitution Reform Program

Football Victoria (FV) has announced the commencement of the 2021 Constitution Reform Program. This is a major project that is intended to review the FV Constitution through a detailed consultation process, then implement changes that will ultimately reshape Football Victoria's governance structure going forward.

The process is expected to run throughout 2021. You can view FV's current Constitution below.

The Constitution Review Group (CRG) was formed to lead the reform process alongside FV. You can view the CRG's presentation outlining the project below.

Following an extensive period of consultation with key stakeholders and the wider football community, the CRG and FV created a Discussion Paper and Summary Document highlighting key elements of FV’s Constitution and By-Laws for consideration.

We are now seeking feedback on the Discussion Paper and proposed amendments through the following survey. Any feedback is considered for internal use only and will remain in confidence.
