The spiritual home

Whether it's the 12-goal debut of Coleman, watching a game from the Showers Stand or being at the ground when Sheeds tied down the windsock, Windy Hill and the memories it holds, will always have a special place in the history of Essendon Football Club. Essendon will continue to invest in the Windy Hill precinct to ensure the club maintains a strong connection with the venue for many generations to come.


The community

Essendon's community engagement has always been underpinned by one simple philosophy – be genuine about making a difference. We are proud of how we strengthen communities through sport.

This philosophy is reflected in the plans for the new facility at Melbourne Airport, with recreational outcomes for the local community, as well as spaces allocated for the expansion of the club's indigenous, multi-cultural, schools and grassroots community programs. Alongside Windy Hill, the precinct will become an important and significant community hub for members of the Essendon family and the local community.

The project and new facilities will also be the cornerstone to a groundbreaking and unique partnership between the club and the Australian Paralympic Committee, supporting both aspiring paralympians and more broadly, people in the community with a disability.
