The success of the 2015 AFC Asian Cup exceeded all expectations. Not only did Australia beat South Korea 2-1 in a nail-biting final, it delivered a financial windfall for the entire country.

Record numbers of boys and girls, men and women, are signing up to play soccer, and they deserve modern, upgraded and safe infrastructure. More than 66,000 Victorians registered to play in grassroots soccer competitions in 2016.
