About The Lions

Maribyrnong Park Football Club (MPFC) was formed in 1980 following the amalgamation of the Riverside Stars and Moonee Imperials Football Clubs. These two clubs shared the clubrooms and two grounds for many years. After numerous attempts to take the Senior Premiership Flag the MPFC Seniors finally came out on top in 2007 moving the club into the EDFL A Grade competition for the 2008 season.
The Reserves also brought home the flag for the first time in 2006 then Premiers and Champions in 2007.

In 2009 Maribyrnong Park won the A Grade Grand Final beating Greenvale in just their 2nd A Grade Season, they followed that up in 2010 taking back to back premiership flags. Maribyrnong Football Club juniors have a successful history in the EDFL, having won Premierships in all age divisions and League Best & Fairest awards. We are very proud of our junior premierships with victories in Under 10’s in 1985, ’88 and ’89. Under 12’s experienced success in 1991, ’95 and ’96, and the Under 14’s in 1984 and ’87.
Our Under 16’s were the proud owners of the 1989 Premiership Flag.

The club has been rebuilding its junior numbers and is now fielding multiple teams in several age groups. In 2009 the results of the rebuilding were shown with nine teams competing (3 Under 10 and 12’s, 2 Under 14s and 1 Under 16). Success continued in 2010-2011 with the club winning several more premierships including the spellbinding win for U12 Div5 – the boys in that team had played in grand finals the previous 3 years and lost by less then a kick…. finally in 2011 in an undefeated season – those boys won their first flag!

Last Season has seen continued growth for our Juniors with 14 teams on the park overall indicating good depth across all age groups.

Maribyrnong Park has proudly produced four AFL players with Jim McAllister, going on to play with Essendon, Footscray and Collingwood, Rory Atkins playing for the Adelaide Football Club, Lynden Dunn playing for Melbourne Football Club and Touk Miller drafted to the Gold Coast Suns Football Club.

Club Song

(Sung to the tune of the French National Anthem and the Fitzroy Football Club song)

We are the boys from Maribyrnong
We wear the colours red and blue
We will always fight for victory

Win or lose we do or die
In defeat we always try
Maribyrnong, Maribyrnong
The team we love so dear
Premiers we’ll be this year

Activities you can help with include:
