COMMUNITY: Community update

Melbourne City FC’s community department have been performing a range of community initiatives and programs over the past month to bring an enriching football experience to all levels of the game.

Game Development Officers Louisa Bisby and Simon Zappia recently visited the Broadmeadows Detention Centre to conduct a clinic with people in a Asylum Seeker Sports Mentoring Program.  Football is an important tool for young men within the Centre, who are often uncertain about their future, to help them negotiate a difficult period in their lives.

Term four is well and truly underway in Victorian schools and the Club’s four-week football programs kicked-off at Northside Christian College and St. Marks Primary School.

Melbourne City FC forward Mate Dugandzic also made a guest appearance at Keilor Park Soccer Club to give the aspiring footballers tips on how to make it to the top.

The boys and girls at the Melbourne City FC College of Football at John Fawkner College also continued their programs over the past couple of weeks and had the chance to play against the SBS All Stars in the One Goal One Community Cup. 

Melbourne City FC hosted and supported the day at the brilliant John Fawkner College facility, as SBS TV personalities Craig Foster and Les Murray put down the microphones and chucked on a pair of boots. If you want Melbourne City FC at your school or Club for a clinic, make sure you head over to our community page for details about how to register.
