Andrew Demetriou was Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Football League (AFL) from 2003 until June 2014.
During his tenure, Andrew oversaw unprecedented growth in Australian football and expanded the game nationally and internationally, and lead the AFL in negotiating a series of commercial arrangements including broadcast and sponsorship agreements. New licenses were awarded to the Gold Coast Suns in Queensland and Greater Western Sydney Giants in New South Wales as part of the AFL's efforts to strengthen its position as 'Australia's Game'.
Andrew also led efforts to secure funding for the redevelopment or establishment of world-class playing venues around Australia including Adelaide Oval, Skoda Stadium in Sydney, Metricon Stadium on the Gold Coast and the proposed Burswood Stadium in Perth.
As AFL CEO Andrew drove the organisation's focus on making a positive difference to society through community engagement programs that promote inclusion and tolerance. Prior to becoming CEO, Andrew served as AFL General Manager of Football Operations for three years, overseeing all aspects of the AFL competition. This followed a stint as head of the AFL Players Association when he was instrumental in establishing programs to look after players during and after their playing careers. He also negotiated a landmark five-year Collective Bargaining Agreement with the AFL as well as a $25 million player fund.
