The Sydney Portugal Community Club was founded on 6th February 1965, a few years after the formation of the Football Club in 1961. Portuguese migrants created the “Clube Português de Sydney”, as it was originally known, in Paddington, in the heart of Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. It was there 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 Sydney Portugal Community Club has developed into its own, to be a prominent entity in the Inner West Community. The Club promotes its history and culture of Portuguese communities; and contributes to a strong relationship with its partners like the Inner West Council, where together they support diverse audiences within the area and its participants by providing events that support community initiatives.
Situated on 4ha of entertaining space and playing fields at Fraser Park, Marrickville, Sydney Portugal Club is synonymous with the Sydney Portuguese community. This vibrant community is concentrated in Petersham and Marrickville, now commonly known as the Portuguese neighbourhood of Sydney.
