Melbourne Croatia Clubrooms

The Melbourne Croatia Soccer Club has and continues to play an important social role for the Croatian community. Post World War II migration to Australia changed the demographic make up of the country. Croatians along with other continental European migrants entered a society that was at the time quite hostile to these new arrivals. Soccer clubs were formed based around ethnic communities.

The Melbourne Knights became a focal point for the community, as it was just as much a social club as a football club. It provided Croatians with a place to gather where they could feel comfortable and safe in their new home. A place where they could mingle with their own and speak their mother tongue. The club allowed for the preservation and celebration of Croatian identity, tradition, culture and language, as well as promoting it to the wider Australian community.

The club continues to be an important institution for the Croatian community, helping keep it alive, as Croatian culture and tradition is passed onto the next generation.

The Melbourne Knights still remains the largest meeting place for Victoria’s Croatian community.

The Melbourne Croatia Soccer Club is proud to provide facilities to the local community. The Club is strongly family oriented, table tennis, three Bocce Grounds, table soccer and Wii Games with a giant projector screen are available for everyone to enjoy.

The club’s main entertainment centers around the following:

Melbourne Knights Match Days
Authentic Croatian Cuisine

Friday Night Dinner with live music, dancing, raffles…
Annual Croktoberfest
Three Bocce Grounds
Enjoy the Beer Garden on a balmy night
Sunday Lunch
Disco Nights in a Club atmosphere

Our Jale ‘Jo’ Omer has been suddenly and sadly diagnosed with Leukaemia (a form of blood cancer) and as she undergoes intensive treatment she is unable to work. In light of this we are determine to support her and her young family while she fights the hardest battle of her life.

For those who don’t know, Jo has been in the Melbourne Croatia family for about 4 years now, her lovely nature and constant smile make her an absolute pleasure to be around. Jo, who is 43 years old is also the mother of two beautiful children.

Join us on Friday June 01 at Melbourne Croatia Soccer Club for dinner and drinks, we are dedicating this Friday night to fundraising for Jo, ALL proceeds from the night will be donated to Jo and family and although entry is free we will be asking you to make a donation at the door (great or small). Neretva will entertain us all night while we will also have a fun and crazy dress up photo booth for people to enjoy.

Join us for this great cause, the money we raise will mean that Jo and family will have at least one less concern at this already difficult time, the financials!

Bookings are essential, call the club on 9310 1842. As all Kitchen proceeds will be donated to the family, those booking with dinner will be given priority.

When: Friday June 01, 2018 from 6pm
