Home of the mighty
Fraser Park FC
Founded in 196I by Portuguese migrants, the “Clube Português de Sydney” as it was originally known, was born in Paddington, in the heart of Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. It was here that a small number of Portuguese immigrants began to plan the future of the club, which later became Rosebery and then Fraser Park F.C.
The first official title won by the “Clube Português de Sydney” was at the All Age Gala Day arranged by Soccer NSW, which was held in 1961. The club has since gone to win 3 x Men’s State League titles in 1989, 1999 and most recently in 2019. The Portuguese have thrived in the Inner West, and Petersham, in particular, remains a cultural home within Australia for Portuguese Australians.
