What is Royals District?
The East Perth District Football Development Council (EPDFDC) exists to grow, develop and promote football throughout the Royals District.
The EPDFDC is seeking to partner with likeminded companies to support the delivery of exciting community development programs in the City of Bayswater, City of Perth, City of Stirling, City of Swan and Town of Vincent.
The Royals District vision is to provide a sustainable, inclusive and fun participation experience unmatched by any other sport in the Royals District community.
The core business of the Royals 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 Royals District include junior clubs, senior clubs, primary schools, secondary schools, local government, state government, federal government and East Perth Football Club.
But, with the population continuing to evolve in the City of Perth, other stakeholders are becoming increasingly important including African Women's Council of WA (AWCoA), Chung Wah Association, Indian Society of WA (ISWA) and Korean Association of WA..
The Royals District has a number of diverse challenges with more than 34% of people in the City of Perth coming from countries where English was a second language with Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, Indonesian and Japanese the most dominant languages spoken in the City of Perth excluding English.
The United Kingdom, Malaysia, New Zealand, India and Ireland represent the biggest slice of nationalities in the City of Perth, which is why designing AFL programs to increase participation in new markets must remain a key priority for the Royals District now and into the future.
