Football Federation Victoria

Football Federation Victoria

The Football Federation Victoria (FFV) the state governing body for association football (soccer) in Victoria, Australia. It is affiliated with the Football Federation Australia, the national governing body.

The FFV was formerly known as the Victorian Soccer Federation; however, it changed its name in 2005 to be in line with the new name of the national body.

The FFV's premier competition is the Foxtel Cup.

Victorian Football Pyramid

The Victorian pyramid consists of two city wide leagues at the top, followed by leagues covering the North-West or South-East Region. This pyramid operates during the winter months with the best players participating in the summer league with clubs representing regions. This ensures that top flight football represents all participants equally and is a vehicle for identifying talent across the state.

Most clubs in Victoria owe their heritage to immigrant communities which continue to be the backbone of most clubs. To honour this legacy, small flags beside each club identify they historical tradition. It should be noted, that despite this history, all clubs in Victoria are multi-cultural and open to supporters and players of all backgrounds.

Clubs for the 2009/10 Summer season are:
