The Victorian Government invests in the sport facilities managed by the trusts to:

  • build and maintain Victoria's capacity to attract and retain major and significant events;

The Professional Boxing and Combat Sports Board regulates the professional boxing and combat sports industry. Its functions are set out in section 14A of the Professional Boxing and Combat Sports Act 1985.

The Victorian Institute of Sport (VIS) was established by the Victorian Government to assist the development of Victoria's best athletes.

The specific functions of each trust and board are summarised in the attached position descriptions. The expression of interest process includes an opportunity for candidates to identify one or more boards and trusts they are interested in joining.

Positions on the trusts and boards provide exciting opportunities for suitably qualified and experienced persons to contribute to the management and further development of Victoria's world class sporting and entertainment infrastructure, the combat sports industry or elite athlete development through the VIS.

As outlined in the position descriptions, members of the Kardinia Park Stadium Trust, Professional Boxing and Combat Sports Board and State Sport Centres Trust are eligible for remuneration, but members of the Melbourne and Olympic Parks Trust, Melbourne Cricket Ground Trust and the VIS Board of Directors are not.

The Victorian Government is committed to ensuring that government trusts and boards reflect the composition of the Victorian community.

It is a Government commitment that no less than 50 per cent of all appointments to paid boards will be women.
