FFA chief executive David Gallop will resign from his role at the end of the year.
The FFA board announced the former NRL boss would stand down on December 31.
“David has provided strong and distinguished leadership over a long period and particularly through a difficult last few years for FFA as we have managed the governance and structural changes around the game,” FFA chairman Chris Nikou said in a statement.
“Working together for the next six months, we will continue to reposition FFA for ongoing success.
“While he will be with us for some time yet, David will leave us with our respect and sincerest best wishes for continued success in the next stage of his career.”
More to come.
