Smart Connection Consultancy is a boutique sport and recreation consultancy who has become one of Australia’s leading advocates for the use of synthetic sports surfaces as a vehicle to grow participation in sport and recreation.

They are the technical advisors/consultants to the National Rugby League; Rugby Australia; Football Federation Australia; AFL (NSW/ACT) and Football NSW. They are also co-founder of the National Sports Convention.

In the past five years, they have been involved in over 70% of the football (football, AFL, rugby union and rugby league) fields installed in Australia. From the planning and the design, to the procurement of $150 million of synthetic sports surfaces, Smart Connection Consultancy’s Managing Director is passionate about using the technology to activate more children and adults to be active and participate in more community sport.

Smart Connection Consultancy has authored a number of Smart Guides which are available free of charge to share management practices to improve the community’s thinking and understanding of the technology. These Smart Guides include:

• Volume 1: Surfaces and Standards (2020)
• Volume 2: Football Turf – Synthetic and Hybrid Technology (2020)
• Volume 3: Environmental and Sustainability Considerations (2020)
