Sponsor Demons District
What is the Perth DFDC?
The Perth Football Development Council (PDFDC) exists to grow, develop and promote football throughout the Demons District.
The PDFDC is seeking to partner with likeminded companies to support the delivery of exciting community development programs in the City of Belmont, City of Canning, City of Gosnells, City of South Perth and Town of Victoria Park.
The Demons District vision is to provide the most innovative, inclusive and professional sporting experience in Western Australia.
The core business of the Demons District is the governance of AFL within our local district; promoting and developing the game; managing competitions, overseeing clubs, expanding and developing our relationships with schools and community groups and the enhancement of facilities.
The key stakeholders in the Demons District include junior clubs, senior clubs, primary schools, secondary schools, local government, state government, federal government and Perth Football Club.
But, with the population continuing to evolve in the City of Belmont, other stakeholders are becoming increasingly important including Chung Wah Association, Filipino Australian Sports Association (FASA) and Indian Society of WA (ISWA).
The Demons District has a number of diverse challenges with more than 25% of people in the City of Belmont coming from countries where English was a second language.
The United Kingdom, New Zealand, India, China and Philippines represent the biggest slice of nationalities in the City of Belmont, which is why designing AFL programs to increase participation in new markets must remain a key priority for the Demons District now and into the future.
