Fan Representative Group

Canberra United Football Club values the views and opinions of its fans and is dedicated to ensuring that they have a fantastic experience as a fan, both on matchday and in every other aspect of their engagement with the Club.

Made up of ten (10) voluntary members, Canberra United Member Representative Group meets with the Club including their CEO and other senior Club staff members a minimum of twice per year to share ideas and discuss a range of topics and issues.
The minutes from these meetings will be shared with all A-League Clubs and the League. Clubs will also table the output and feedback from these meetings with their Club owners.
This means the Club regularly hears from, and is influenced by, the people who matter most – its loyal Members and fans.

Each elected Member Representative will represent one of the following key demographic groups:

  • Under 25s representative
  • Over 65s representative
  • LGBTQ+ fans representative
  • Families’ representative
  • Full Season Membership representative
  • Flexi Season Membership representative
  • Disabled supporters’ representative

As this is a newly formed group with no existing members or representatives, the Club welcomes applications for all groups.

What do we look for in representatives?

We are looking for dedicated Members who are comfortable engaging with the Club’s wider fanbase to gather views and feedback to represent their respective fan group in meetings with the Club.

Member Representatives will need to be able and willing to give reasonable time commitments to their role and ensure that they are able to comply with the role description below.
