This incredible facility is our most significant undertaking since the club relocated from South Melbourne four decades ago. Sydney Swans HQ and Community Centre provides a world-class home for the Sydney Swans AFL and AFLW teams and the QBE Sydney Swans Academy. The new space will drive even more growth through the Academy, and support the extraordinary surge in AFLW, inspiring the next generation of women and girls in sport. The Sydney Swans Foundation raised $20 million for this project.

"Sydney Swans HQ could only have happened with the efforts of those who dreamt it, designed it, built it, funded it and now enjoy it. Those who use the building daily bring its bricks and mortar to life. In return, the building helps those who occupy it to reach their full potential. This is what joining great buildings with great people can achieve. Unlimited potential".
- Andrew Pridham
Sydney Swans Chairman
