Football SA was established in 2006 and since this time has been the governing body of football in South Australia and a member of the national association, Football Australia.
Football SA is a competition administrator for all levels of the game including semi-professional and amateur men, women, junior and inclusive competitions. In addition, Football SA provides administration support to affiliated associations, who are responsible for conducting competitions for amateur men, women, and juniors across South Australia.
Football Development is a key function of Football SA. Integral to football development is Football SA’s commitment to service both community and elite player pathways through the implementation of participation strategies and talented player pathway programs.
In addition to player development, Football SA provides education and accreditation programs for the development of coaches and match officials. Football SA is dedicated to providing a holistic approach to the development of participants.
South Australia has a diverse multicultural population and Football SA is committed to creating opportunities for everyone to have access to football. The expansion of the game in regional areas of the state is also a key focus of the organisation.
Providing the best available facilities for the code is also a priority and the development of the Football Facility Strategic Plan aims to guide future investment by Federal, State and Local Governments to ensure facility development in the sport.
