Kennedy Community Centre

Proposed Venue

Kennedy Community Centre

The Kennedy Community Centre is the future new training and administration home of the Hawthorn Football Club, with construction set to commence in 2021.

The plans include the construction of a $100 million headquarters and community facilities across 28 hectares at Dingley, including an MCG-sized training oval and elite aquatic and gym facilities for the Hawks men’s and women’s teams. The main oval would host home games for a future Hawthorn AFLW team, as well as VFL and community matches.

The Kennedy Community Centre will feature:

  • A community pavilion and oval built to ensure gender equal facilities and public amenities, specifically for community use and engagement
  • Flexible education and learning spaces enabling delivery of flagship, partnered programs that mentor, lead, educate and inspire
  • An indoor stadium for community basketball, netball, volleyball, and wheelchair AFL
  • A main oval and the Harris Elite Training and Administration Facility which will cater for all Hawthorn teams equally
  • Administrative spaces for community and not-for-profit organisations to share the club’s resources, creating a healthy, inclusive, and cohesive culture through participation and sport

The Federal Government has committed $15 million to the project, however at this stage, the Daniel Andrews State Government is yet to commit any funds.
