About the project
The Melbourne Football Club is the oldest professional football club in the world and we are very proud of that fact. In almost 160 years it has naturally accumulated stores of memorabilia and priceless artefacts that need to be made available for public viewing. Our fans have expressed a great deal of interest in our heritage and as a result we intend to provide them with an easily accessible facility that walks them through our rich history. Whether it is online or in a museum from within our training base, a dedicated recognition of the Melbourne Football Club’s past is an important part of club operation. Currently the club is taking stock and cataloguing all of its collections in readiness for the day it has raised enough funds to undertake such a venture.
