About the Portugal Madeira Club

Portugal Madeira Sydney Social and Cultural Sports Club Association was founded in Dulwich Hill in 1968.  Then an association formed largely by Portuguese speaking migrants that had settled in the inner western suburbs of Sydney around the city of Marrickville, sister city to the Portuguese city of Funchal, located in the archipelago of Madeira. The aim of the association was to promote Portuguese speaking cultures locally and to facilitate the integration of all new settlers into the Australian way of life, through the practice of sports, competitions and charitable events.

Since soccer was by far the preferred sport of the founding members, they decided to form a professional soccer team to compete into the local New South Wales league.  The association formed its own soccer squad, the Dulwich Hill Football Club, which has been competing locally since 1968.  In 2019, Dulwich Hill Football Club will dispute the National Premier League 3 (NPL3) championship.

On the 7th day of June, 1985 the Association incorporated and become the Portugal Madeira Sydney Social and Cultural Sports Club Limited or as it is known affectionately in Australia as the Portugal Madeira Club of Sydney.
