Football Queensland (FQ) has today announced sport governance experts DHW Simpson Advisory will undertake an independent review of the governance of football in Queensland as part of the Future of Football 2020+ consultation process.
With Governance one of the four areas of focus of the Future of Football 2020+, the independent look into the way the game is governed in Queensland will be delivered by renowned governance expert Dale Wood.
“Dale Wood is highly regarded and well credentialed and is a major boost for the Future of Football 2020+ journey. Dale’s governance experience spans over 20 years in sport, having worked on major reform projects including the highly regarded 2003 Crawford Report into Australian football governance,” FQ CEO Robert Cavallucci said.
“The independent review will dive into the layers of the game’s governance in Queensland including their constitutions, congress and composition. The review will also consider Football Queensland’s board processes and procedures, board charters and by laws; along with lessons from good governance frameworks from other sporting organisations.
“Dale’s extensive experience in sport governance projects will bolster the outcomes for the future of football in the state as we work to deliver the benchmark in governance and the optimal outcome for the game in Queensland.”
The Future of Football 2020+ consultation process continues to invite feedback from Queensland’s football community on key areas of the game. Two highly successful Club Summits have already been held in Cairns and Townsville, with ongoing consultation opportunities around the state to be announced in the coming days.
