Soccer takes the lead

Football named Australia’s biggest club-based participation sport

Football is Australia’s largest club-based participation sport according to independent data released today by the Australian Sports Commission (ASC).

The ASC’s AusPlay survey reveals that more than a million men, women, boys and girls are playing football, significantly more than any other club-based sport.

Floreat Athena Football Club was established in 1951 as a place for the local community to unite around football and a place for families to socialise. Today, Floreat Athena remains one of the only founding clubs still in existence and we still pride ourselves in providing a facility for the community to embrace a family culture and create pathways for players to progress to the Floreat Athena National Premier League 1st team, Professional League (eg A-League) or International level, whilst still encouraging children to participate, do their best and have fun.

We are looking forward to this great sport growing and developing even more.
