News Fair Play 10 (Melbourne)

The biggest Fair Play event yet, proved to be a fitting way for us to celebrate our 10th anniversary!!

32 teams battled it out for the Jinta Trophy across 6 pitches on the famous oval, with Vic Police taking out the final from Morning Star.

Another fantastic day played in the right spirit, bringing together teams from all corners of the local community including Metropolitan Fire Brigade and Vic Police, teams from the local estates including the Collingwood Allstars Soccer Program which the event supports and other regulars including PBS/RR, ACE and Shadowfax.
A representative team from Melbourne Victory fielded members who had won a competition to represent the club.
