The provision of quality facilities plays a significant role in the cricket experience of each and every player, coach, umpire, volunteer and spectator and in creating positive and welcoming environments for all participants, both now and into the future.

The VCIS has been developed in close consultation with local cricket, Victoria’s 79 local government authorities, various departments and agencies of the Victorian Government, Cricket Australia and the sport sector, to provide an integrated and strategic approach to the future delivery of and investment in cricket facilities across both metropolitan Melbourne and country Victoria.

 


Division of Seasons Determination

The Division of Seasons Determination is signed by Cricket Victoria, AFL Victoria and the Victorian Government and applies from 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2022 (inclusive).

The strategy is built on five key strategic pillars to guide investment and development:

  1. Game and practice facilities that maximise the amount of cricket that can be played
  2. The development of regional cricket and community centres
  3. Supporting inclusive cricket through better infrastructure
  4. Development of multi-use facilities
  5. A focus on partnerships as part of planning and investment
