The Old Xaverians Football Club is one of Australia's most successful sporting clubs.
Founded in 1923 by alumni of Melbourne's Xavier College, and affiliated with the Victorian Amateur Football Association since inception, the Old Xavs are today a progressive, professional organisation and one of Australia's largest and most successful clubs.
The club maintains a close relationship with Xavier College, which remains the major source of recruits to the Old Xavs.
Old Xaverians waited fifteen years for its first premiership, the C Section flag in 1938. Today, on the brink of the 2019 season, our club has won a total of 75 flags in 90 seasons.
The 1990s were a golden era for the Old Xavs, winning a VAFA record of six A Section premierships in six years as well as numerous flags in the Reserve, Thirds, Club XVIII and Under 19 Sections. That success has continued through the present day, due to the efforts the efforts of many - from committee, players and coaches, generous corporate partners and supporters, who have contributed to the illustrious history of Australia's finest amateur football club.
In 2017, Old Xaverians created history again, with the introduction of a Women's Team. In 2018, we added another. We are extremely proud of the opportunities we have presented to so many young men and women to wear the famous red and black jumper.
As the Old Xavs story continues, we will add more to these pages, quite appropriately recognising the efforts of those who have come before us and built the traditions on which the club stands today..
