Geelong Soccer Club (previously known as Geelong Makedonia) is a Macedonian founded association football club in Geelong, Australia. The club was founded during the 1950s.


The Geelong Soccer and Sports Club was established in the early 1950s by a group of migrants from the UK and Europe as a way of playing soccer and socialising.

Not long after the club was established, it began competing in the local Geelong and Ballarat Soccer League where it experienced much success. In the early seventies the club was promoted to the Victorian Provisional League and later gained promotion to the Victorian State League.

The most recent significance in the club’s history was achieved in 1994 when the club merged with the East Geelong Soccer and Sports Club.

Since season 1968 the club has won 8 premierships. The premierships were won in the following seasons: 1968 – 1969 – 1970 – 1976 – 1980 - 1988 – 1996 – 1998.

Geelong won the Diversity Cup in 2015.
