Antonella Care elected as new Football Victoria President


Football Victoria elected their first ever female president, Antonella Care, in their 2021 Annual General Meeting on Wednesday.

Care was elected for Presidency unopposed and will serve a 2-year term. She took over the position after the former President, Kimon Taliadoros, was appointed CEO of the organisation in February 2021. Care was also the acting President until the General Meeting.

A member of the Football Victoria Board Member since March 2016, she has more than 20 years of corporate experience. She is a highly qualified professional who prides herself on having a strong understanding of governance and positive working relationships with many Local Government departments.

Three Directors were also appointed following a democratic electoral process, Jo Bladen, Yianni Zaparas and Steve Forbes. Serving 4-year terms, all three possess a wealth of experience in their respective fields and will bring diverse expertise to Football Victoria. 

Following the electoral results, CEO of Football Victoria, Kimon Taliadoros addressed the audience. Taliadoros presented his 2020 report and outlined the organisation’s key strategic goals for 2021 and 2022. 

Although the impacts of COVID-19 were severe, both Taliadoros and the Senior Executive Manager of Business Operations, Matthew Green, were optimistic about the future, with stability starting to return to the organisation and wider Victorian football community.
