City of Casey

City of Casey and Melbourne Football Club work together in the community

Victoria’s largest municipality, the City of Casey, and one of the oldest and greatest football clubs in the world, the Melbourne Football Club, are work together to jointly promote and showcase sporting opportunities and the benefits of an active lifestyle throughout Casey’s schools, sporting clubs and community groups.

The partnership focuses on five key pillars: education, multicultural, women, business and grassroots football.
In June 2009, Council, Melbourne Football Club and the Casey Demons embarked on a 30-year partnership.

The partnership has celebrated a number of successes. These include:

  • Delivery of comprehensive community partnership programs in local schools, businesses and junior and senior sports clubs at an estimated value of more than $2.3 million per year

  • Establishment, implementation and evaluation of the highly successful Read Like a Demon Program in 59 schools and libraries in the City of Casey

  • Increase in membership in the City of Casey as more local supporters join the fan base

  • Melbourne Football Club has been a proud sponsor of the Casey-Cardinia Breakfast Series and Casey Business Awards for the last three years

  • The VFL pavilion at Casey Fields underwent a significant extension funded by Council, MFC, AFL and the State Government. The $2.1 million project was officially opened in April 2010 and provides an AFL-standard gym, physiotherapy area, warm-up room, change rooms and recovery space, including a state-of-the-art refrigerated spa.

  • In 2017 Melbourne players invested more than 600 hours of their time in the City of Casey community through a range of meaning programs (such as the Read Like a Demon program, school visits, Auskick centre visits and participating in footy and community festivals).
