Recent structural and personnel changes within the high performance setup of football require monitoring to ensure progression of teams towards contributing to Winning Edge goals. The level of support provided to the Matildas will be an important consideration if the team is to perform strongly at upcoming major events. The Socceroos qualified for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil but have drawn a difficult group alongside Spain, the Netherlands and Chile.

The performance profile of para football suggests they are unlikely to qualify for Rio 2016. Discussions are underway between Football Federation Australian (FFA), AIS and APC.

FFA is proactive in ensuring best practice governance standards are met and that the organisation is aligned to the ASC mandatory governance principles. FFA has developed a succession plan which will assist preparing for the loss of three inaugural and experienced directors in 2015, including chairman Frank Lowy.

Football has strong market share in participation. Key growth areas included futsal and school-managed participants, while senior outdoor membership decreased slightly. The MyFootballClub digital platform has been rolled out successfully across the country.
