Casey Football Centre of Excellence

The Team 11 training and administration base at Casey Fields promises to be the envy of professional sporting clubs far and wide.

The Casey Football Centre of Excellence will provide world class training and administration facilities for the A-League / W-League club alongside community football pitches, reinforcing Team 11’s commitment to grassroots participation and player development pathways.

Team 11 will boast state of the art training and administration facilities that will be the envy of the rest of the competition.

The Site

Casey Fields is located 45km from Melbourne in Cranbourne East.  At 84 hectares in size, Casey Fields offers a range of elite and regionally significant sporting facilities including an AFL Boutique Stadium (home to Melbourne Football Club), a Victorian Premier Cricket Oval (home to Casey South Melbourne Cricket Club and Melbourne Stars events), a regional athletics track, regional BMX and criterium tracks and rugby league fields.

The Centre of Excellence will be developed in the south-west portion of the site, in accordance with the Casey Fields Master Plan.

Elite Training and Administration Base

Team 11 will boast state of the art training and administration facilities that will be the envy of the rest of the competition.
Facilities will include:

  • Elite natural turf pitch with floodlighting

  • Grandstand for approximately 700 people

  • Spectator mounding

  • Change rooms

  • Fitness, training and recovery facilities

  • Administration offices

The main pitch will have the capacity to cater for approximately 4000 spectators and will be capable of hosting W-League, National Youth League and A-League pre-season fixtures and marquee games featuring local clubs. A second natural turf field (within the adjoining Regional Football Centre) will ensure our youth teams train in the same facility as our senior men and women.

Regional Football Centre

Adjoining the club’s elite facilities, the Regional Football Centre will cater for local clubs, schools and grassroots participants and provide the ideal environment for Team 11 to foster links with the community.
The Centre will consist of:

  • 3 synthetic football fields

  • 1 natural turf football field

  • Competition level floodlighting

  • An 8 change room pavilion

The four floodlit pitches will be shared by local clubs and the pavilion has been designed with eight change rooms to support simultaneous training and match play. These facilities will respond to the immediate demand/gap in facilities, and will provide a development pathway for players in Melbourne’s South-East.
