East Gippsland United FC

The East Gippsland community was devastated by the recent bushfires with many businesses, farmers and families impacted. So too was its football community.

Bush Fire Relief

Altona City Soccer Club committee members Dale Collins Club Secretary and Claire Randall Club Wellbeing Officer recently attended a Football Victoria event and listened to East Gippsland United President Ben Knight and Senior Coach, Committee Member and local volunteer CFA officers share the impact the fires had had on their local community.

Sadly, due to the effects of the bush fires, many East Gippsland United FC families find themselves unable to pay for their children’s soccer fees for season 2020.

Altona City would like to assist our fellow soccer club and raise $4,220 the amount needed to sponsor 11 children so they can once again take to the pitch in 2020 and continue playing the game they love.
