FFV releases documentation for NPLV

Structure and criteria of National Premier Leagues Victoria announced.

Football Federation Victoria (FFV) today released the Victorian model of the National Premier Leagues (NPLV) following the Board’s approval on Monday 15 April.

The NPLV is a Football Federation Australia (FFA) initiative and will be established in each state by 2014 to provide a national second-tier for Australian senior football and a consistent approach to the development of Australia’s talented junior footballers.

The NPLV is in line with FFA’s national framework for player development and coaching education. In fact FFV has gone one step further by being the only Member Federation to include women and girls.

This will be the ultimate league for aspiring talented players in Victoria and will cater for players in both metropolitan and regional Victoria, ensuring that location will not be a barrier that prevents players from being a part of the league.

FFV CEO, Peter Gome said that Victoria is in a strong position nationally thanks to FFV’s widespread consultation process.

“FFV is unique among Member Federations in that we will include women and girls in our NPL structure as the FFV Board considers it important that all players be provided with equal opportunity to reach their full potential in a supportive environment regardless of gender,” he said.

“I am confident that with the support of the Victorian football community the NPLV will be a resounding success in 2014. FFV is looking forward to this new and exciting chapter of Victorian football.

“FFV’s consultation with stakeholders around Victoria has been the most comprehensive of any Member Federation and on behalf of the team at FFV and the Board we would like to thank our stakeholders for their highly valued feedback during the National Competition Review consultation process.”

FFV will support clubs during the application process and will conduct a series of information sessions in May and June throughout the state. FFV will assess applications during August and announce NPLV clubs in early September.
