Floreat Athena is a club with a rich and enduring history and is recognised as having the most passionate supporters. Like most football (soccer) clubs established in Australia at the time, Floreat Athena’s origins are founded in ethnic migrants who had a passion for football.
The Athena Club was established in 1951 as a place for the local Greek community to unite around football. It also became a place for Greek’s to socialise and promote their culture to the broader Australian population. In 1953, the club entered a team into to the third division of WA’s State League and by 1960 Athena was playing in the top-flight competition. The club has been a stalwart in the State League Premier competition, in all its incarnations, for the past 6 decades.
