A Century of the Red & Black

The Old Xaverians Football Club is one of Australia's most successful sporting clubs

From humble beginnings nearly a century ago, the Old Xaverians Football Club has grown into one of Australia's community football powerhouses.

‍Today the club has broadened itself and provides opportunities for football at all levels.  We offer both men’s and women’s senior programs as well as Under 19’s.  Whilst our primary focus is team success we strive to be known as progressive where participation is encouraged regardless of relative ability.  We are fortunate to be the club of choice for many Xavier College alumni.  At the same time, we welcome all newcomers regardless of the schooling. It is important that we are a respected club that is both welcoming and inclusive and that extends to our members and supporters.

In 2019 we introduced women’s netball to the club and quickly recruited enough players to register 5 teams.  Combining the netball program with our 10 football teams we are the largest club in the VAFA.  Our senior men, women and U19’s all play in the VAFA’s Premier grade.

Our home ground is at Toorak Park, Prahran, however given our size we use other nearby grounds as required.
