Swinburne Launches Strategic Plan

Swinburne has unveiled it's visionary strategic plan at our season launch on Thursday night. The plan sets out a clear blueprint for the Club to enter it's most successful era.

Running from 2023-2027 the plan covers important goals including returning to women's football, increasing the number of its men's teams and moving to Glenferrie Oval once restoration works there are completed by Boroondara Council.

"After experiencing a turbulent last few years, the club understands now more than ever that to be successful on-field you must be successful off-field," said Swinburne President Chris Webster. 

"The VAFA is more and more competitive every year and that doesn't just apply to the football. It applies to everything off-field as well from increasing expenses to social media and providing the right environment for players."

THe Razorbacks strategy is divided between four key areas, governance and administration, treasury, stakeholder engagement and match-day operations.


Each of these areas has a number of goals the club hopes to achieve across the operation of the plan. These goals feed into 7 key objectives, as well as a number of KPIs that the club will achieve across the life of the plan.


"This plan clearly sets out the club's values, and our commitment to be the best possible club we can be and allow our players to reach their potential. We're really proud of hour far we've come over the past few years and what the next five years will bring," Webster stated, "we can't wait to get started this year and believe our pre-season preparations have been very good so we're confident we can mix it with higher Div 3 teams."
