Bringing people together, championing inclusion and creating opportunity

Team Up is the Australian Government’s sport for development program in Asia-Pacific, comprising more than 30 partnerships that are working towards three outcomes:

  • Sport programs attract and retain women, girls and people with a disability, as well as men and boys.
  • Sport organisations are safe, inclusive and accessible.
  • Australia and Asia-Pacific partners use sport to strengthen relationships and build closer collaboration.

These three outcomes all contribute to the overall goal of using Australia-Asia-Pacific sport partnerships support all people to realise their full potential through sport.

Team Up is one of a number of programs and activities driving the Australian Government’s implementation of the Sports Diplomacy 2030 strategy that support sporting organisations, athletes and the Pacific community through sport. It delivers on one of the key priorities of the strategy by using sport as a tool to strengthen communities across Asia-Pacific. It works closely with the Australian Government’s elite sports program, PacificAus Sports.

The first phase of Team Up is centred on the Pacific and has five focus areas: gender, disability, leadership, governance and knowledge.
