White City Football Club is an Australian semi-professional soccer club based in Woodville, Adelaide, South Australia. Founded in 1949 by the Serbian Australian community, the club currently competes in the National Premier Leagues South Australia. White City was formerly coached by former Australian international Milan Ivanović. They are currently coached by former Adelaide City player Sergio Melta who was appointed as head coach for the 2015 season.
The Beograd Sports and Social club was formed on 19 November 1949 and a meeting arranged at the railway lawns, North Terrace, Adelaide. The first Committee was: President Ilija Ilic, Vice President Miodrag Zivkovic, Secretary Danilo Cukic, Treasurer Â Nikola Kleut and committee members Dusan Naumovic, Vaso Kekovic, Stanoje Vukovic and Peter Nikolich.
Beograd played its first league game on 15 April 1950 at its home ground in the South Parklands against Prospect, winning the game 5-2. Beograd moved to its current home of Frank Mitchell Park in 1956. In 2006, the Club celebrated its 50th anniversary.
In 1979 Beograd won the State League First Division Championship for the first time. This milestone also coincides with the year Beograd changed its playing colours from blue, white and red to the Serbian colours of Red, blue and white. In addition, flood lights were also installed in 1979 by Branko Petakovic and the president was Milan Stepanovic.
In 1992 Beograd changed its name to White City Woodville and still plays under this name today. The name of the ground at Woodville West was changed to Frank Mitchell Park in honour of the Club's servant who devoted many years of his life to the White City and its juniors.
