Football Federation Australia (FFA) has been rated as progressing. The Matildas’ qualification for the 2015 World Cup in Canada reflects good progress by the team; however, it is recognised that Olympic qualification will be difficult. Newly appointed coach Alen Stajcic is working with the WLeague franchises and is optimistic they will engage and be aligned to the national program, Olympic qualification and national squad athlete development.

The Olyroos — the national under-23 men’s team — will commence their Olympic qualification preparations in early 2015. The recent performance by the Socceroos winning their maiden Asian Cup title was highly commended.

governance
FFA has implemented a sound governance structure that is in line with the majority of the ASC governance principles. Over the coming 12 months FFA will implement a whole of football strategic plan, which will assist it in achieving key cultural changes.
