Netball great Ellis joins review of FFA management

Matildas captain and star striker Sam Kerr sits down with ESPN to share her journey from Aussie rules to soccer and what coming home to Perth truly means.
On the eve of her third World Cup, Sam Kerr has her eyes firmly set on glory, taking down the US and what success would mean for women’s sport back home.

Football Federation Australia has named a three-person panel to review national team management following the controversial sacking of ex-Matildas coach Alen Stajcic in January.

Former Australia netball captain Liz Ellis will sit on the panel along with Sydney Olympics bid mastermind Rod McGeoch.

The panel will be chaired by businesswoman Diane Smith-Gander and investigate decision-making processes and the way in which items are reported to the FFA board within national teams.

It will not review Stajcic’s termination but will use the decision as an example to shed light on processes within national team management structures.

The panel’s report is expected to be delivered to the FFA board by the end of October.
