Essendon Royals Soccer Club is a leading community soccer/football club in Melbourne’s inner north-west.
The Royals were founded in 1959 as Unione Sportiva Triestina. The name reflected the Italian roots, specifically the city of Trieste, of its founders.
Home to over 800 players, the Royals are committed to being one of Victoria’s central hubs of football.
During Season 2024, our senior men team is competing in VPL2 (formerly NPL3), while our senior women compete in the NPLW Victoria competition.
Essendon Royals is committed to providing a fun, positive and organised environment for budding junior soccer players to enjoy the game and develop their skills.
Our senior teams provide ample challenges for those seeking to prove themselves at a higher level in the game, while we also maintain a number of social, open-age teams.
