Fraser Park FC, is an Australian soccer club with teams competing at all grades of the NSW Men’s Premier League 2[2] and in various divisions of the Canterbury District Soccer Football Association.[3] The club also has teams participating in the Football NSW Skills Acquisition Program,[4] which is the official Football NSW development program for players age 9 to 11 years. Their home ground is Fraser Park, off Marrickville Rd in the Sydney suburb of Marrickville.

History[edit]

The club was founded in the 1960s by Portuguese immigrants as 'Clube Portugues de Sydney'. It was originally founded in Sydney's Paddington in the Eastern suburbs, but is currently based in the Inner West at Marrickville. The club won its first official title at the All Age Gala Day organised by Soccer NSW, which was held in 1961.[5]

Team colours[edit]

The club has a distinct Portuguese background, and therefore its colours are that of the Portuguese national football team.
