Head of AFL NSW/ACT, Tiffany Robertson, to depart AFL

Head of AFL NSW/ACT, Tiffany Robertson, has decided to finish with the AFL at the end of June after seven years with the game’s governing body, including more than four leading the state and territory.

Tiffany has overseen the code in NSW/ACT during an immensely challenging period punctuated by floods, fires, a global pandemic and devastating events such as the Singleton bus tragedy and its impact on football and the community.

Under Tiffany’s leadership, footy has bounced back from those challenges, while significant investment in facilities has gone towards helping the game grow. More than $67 million has been invested in priority second tier infrastructure in Greater Sydney, including the upgrade of Henson Park to be the home of NAB AFLW in Sydney and the future Showring Oval in the heart of Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.

Community infrastructure has also benefitted during this time, with more than 40 projects and $110 million invested in community facilities, including increasing female friendly amenities by 77 per cent. 

Tiffany also led the establishment of the NSW Strategic Advisory Group to add capability and experience to drive growth and alignment across the industry and has overseen growth in key segments like Independent Schools and Community NAB AFL Auskick through this period. 

The AFL is grateful for Tiffany’s leadership and an unwaveringly positive attitude to getting on with the job of promoting Australian rules football – and its people – across the region and wishes her well on her future endeavours.
