Using the power of sport to deliver community benefits.
In 2017 Collingwood launched a partnership with the State Labour Government and the Latrobe Valley Authority (LVA) to deliver an $85 million Community and Sports Project in the Latrobe Valley.
The project uses the power of sport to bring significant social and economic benefits to the region.
Collingwood works with the State Government, Latrobe Valley Authority, Destination Gippsland, Shire Councils, Sports Teams/Organisations and Community Groups to deliver the project, which has already generated over 500 new jobs.
The project includes $75 million in new or upgraded sports facilities along with a wide range of major sport and community participation programs and events.
In addition to the infrastructure projects, Collingwood promotes and delivers major sports events and associated community programs involving our AFL, VFL, AFLW, VFLW and Netball teams.
