Football Federation Victoria (FFV) is the governing body for football (soccer) in Victoria.
We are recognised as the organisation responsible for the administration, promotion and delivery of football and futsal (indoor football) in the state by both the State and Federal Governments, as well as Football Federation Australia (FFA). Our funding derives from membership and club affiliation fees, government grants and corporate sponsorship.
Through the national body's affiliation with FIFA (Federation of International Football Associations), we look after everything football in Victoria including:
Football will be regarded as the sport that provides genuine access and value to quality experiences which inspire Victorians.
We are in the business to deliver the best possible football experiences and opportunities to our customers and partners.
We are a not for profit sporting organisation run by a Board of Directors, elected by football stakeholders made up of Zone Representatives and Standing Committees. We reinvest any money generated by the game and our partners back to where it is needed most.
Outlined in our Strategic Plan, we manage the organisation in a financially prudent manner, prioritising in providing more coaching, education, facilities, support and participation opportunities to the community.
We currently employ over 50 staff to deliver administration of weekly football matches, producing annual football fixtures and appropriate rules of competition. Referees are also appointed to these matches to facilitate a safer and more enjoyable participation experience.
We also deliver education programs and resources to talented players, coaches, referees and club volunteers while promoting the game through various channels, keeping our members informed regularly through a dedicated communications program.
