WAFC Statement - Public Accounts Committee InquiryThursday, June 25, 2020 - 5:12 PM

The WAFC takes the inquiry announced today by the Public Accounts Committee seriously and will give it the highest priority.  

The Commission believes the inquiry provides an opportunity to fully explain the depth of investment into WA Football which the WAFC is responsible for.
The WAFC recognises the vital importance of the $11 million contribution by the State, via the Optus Stadium Funding Agreement, which is invested into the advancement of football across WA.  

Those funds, along with more than $20 million generated through other sources such as the AFL system, sponsorships and player registration, keep football as the sport with the highest number of participants in our State. 

This includes almost 350,000 participants and more than 460 clubs across all competitions in WA, as an intrinsic part of the cultural fabric of communities throughout the State.   

The WAFC will be cooperative and transparent in its upcoming dealings with the Public Accounts Committee.
