About the Dulwich Hill Football Club
The Dulwich Hill Football Club is a Sydney-side soccer team that competes in the local soccer league of New South Wales, the FootballNSW NPL. The Club was formed by the Portugal Madeira Sydney Social and Cultural Sports Club Association based in Sydney’s inner western city of Marrickville, a sister city to Portuguese city of Funchal, located in the archipelago of Madeira.
The first clubhouse of the association was located in Dulwich Hill, a suburb belonging to the city of Marrickville. Dulwich Hill was chosen as the name for the football club for that very reason. After all, it all started in the Dulwich Hill area.
The founding members shared a passion for soccer and saw the local soccer competition as a vehicle for the integration of new settlers into the Australian way of life and at the same time increase the local exposure of Portuguese speaking peoples.
Today the Dulwich Hill FC has 7 teams from the ages of 13 to 21 and over. They all compete in the local NSW soccer leagues:
- The Youth teams, under 13’s, under 14’s, under 15’s and under 16’s compete on National Premier Youth division 2 competition.
- The Men’s teams, under 18’s, under 20’s and 1st team compete on FootballNSW National Premier League division 3 competition.
The 1st team of the Dulwich Hill Football Club has had mixed successes in the NPL3 competition, which it has:
- Won once (1988)
- Lost two finals (2008 and 2009)
- Finish premiers twice (1988, 2009)
- Finish runner-up once (2013)
