STARTING A NEW CLUB
Each year Football Victoria FV receives expressions of interest for new clubs. To find out more about FV, and especially what we are looking for in new clubs, please read the 2020 FV New Club Application Policy.
Before submitting your expression of interest using the online form below, please ensure that you have read and understand the 2020 FV New Club Application Policy. This is especially important as FV will prioritise areas not currently serviced by community clubs. Breaking away from existing clubs is not encouraged. To avoid doubt, FV will not support new club applications from businesses, especially academies or individuals offering private tuition.
