There are stories everywhere in Australian football and the role of Leopold Method is to bring them to life. As the modern game seeks to reconcile with its past, we want to educate the football community about the game’s history. To take it out of the academic and anorak archives and into the public’s hands.
Our hope is that Leopold Method can provide a space for voices outside of the mainstream. To analyse key issues – such as cost of playing, player participation, the challenges for regional and women’s football, governance, facilities strategy, volunteerism – and to bring them to public attention. We want the game to grow, and unless these issues are part of the debate, they will be forgotten, and the game held back.
