Essendon Football Club has an exciting and bold vision for the future – to create the best training and community facilities of any team in Australia. The vision comprises the development of a state-of-the- art facility near Melbourne Airport as well as retaining a presence at our spiritual home.

With land measuring over 100,000sqm – more than double the footprint of Windy Hill – the new precinct allows for unprecedented future growth and delivers a multi-generational outcome for the Club.

The vision for the Club starts with new bricks and mortar but it is so much more; it's a vision for the Club to remain a place where people aspire to be and a Club where a continued culture of success drives everything we do.

 

"This is a great club, the Essendon I know values success and is not taking any short cuts to build on of the highest quality training facilities in Australia - that's where we need to be. People may not think it affects the players directly, but it does. We need a bit patch of grass, a professional gym, a large indoor training area and facilities for rehabilitation."
