Melbourne Rovers was formed in June 2008, as a LGBTIQA+ soccer club to foster the playing of soccer so as to achieve the general aims of physical and social fitness, health, and recreation. Melbourne Rovers are a mix of players from different backgrounds, who range in age from 18 to 55. While many players in the club identify as same-sex attracted, there are also a number of players and officials who identify as bisexual or straight. Sexuality is not an obstacle to playing for Melbourne Rovers SC.
The Melbourne Rovers run social soccer during the Spring and Summer at Fawkner Park in South Yarra. During the Winter Season, the Melbourne Rovers are located in the Richmond/Burnley Area. In 2023 Rovers are looking to grow with the launch of the inaugural Winter Women’s Team. The Men’s Team plays in Football Victoria’s Metro Division in the South-East.
If you are interested in joining the Melbourne Rovers as a non-player, we are always looking for volunteers to help out please contact us.
