    Football Federation Victoria (FFV): call for tribunal members

    As part of its continual improvement, Football Federation Victoria (FFV) regularly reviews its list of independent tribunal members to ensure we have a range of panel members that are interested, appropriately skilled, and keen to help determine misconduct matters in football.

    The independent tribunal hears and determines a variety of on and off field misconduct in relation to football such as violence, racial and other verbal abuse, bringing the game into disrepute type matters, registration issues, crowd misconduct and a range of other Code of Conduct matters in accordance with FFV’s disciplinary rules.

    Tribunals are usually comprised of three (3) person panels, and new tribunal members are teamed with experienced members.  Tribunal hearings are held during the football season (approximately March to October) on Wednesday evenings at the AAT (Level 14, HWT Tower, Southgate).

    A tribunal member will ordinarily sit 5-6 times on average during the season (though some members sit more frequently than others due to personal availability, and some less).  Tribunal members wholly donate their time and are not paid for their service.

    Being part of the independent tribunal is a fantastic opportunity for those in the legal profession to be involved in the game, and be part of some interesting and important matters.  It also provides an excellent opportunity to increase your network with like-minded tribunal members, and to get involved in sports-law on a practical level.

    If being part of the FFV independent tribunal appeals to you, please send an expression of interest and your CV to, and please put your name and “FFV tribunal” in the subject line.  Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
