In 2019 local football and netball were flourishing. Participation in Women's football had grown at an amazing rate. Junior and senior participation were at outstanding levels. The 2020 season promised a continued surge in participation............and then it was cancelled.
Research shows that community football and netball in Australia has a 10:1 reach. That means for every participant, there are another 10 people who benefit
It also shows that every $1 invested in local football generates $440 in social value, improving employment outcomes, mental wellbeing and personal development.
They are big numbers, but what happens when all senior and junior football / netball gets cancelled because of Covid-19? and perhaps more importantly, how do we recover?
