Dulwich Hill Football Club

Dulwich Hill Football Club is a Sydney-side soccer team that competes in the third division of the local soccer league in New South Wales, the National Premier League (NPL3). 

Dulwich Hill Football Club was formed in 1968 by the Association of the Portugal Madeira Club in Dulwich Hill, a suburb of the city of Marrickville, a sister city to Portuguese city of Funchal, capital of the archipelago of Madeira in Portugal.

The first clubhouse of the association was located in Dulwich Hill, so its members decided to adopt Dulwich Hill as the official name of the association’s football club. After all, it all startted in Dulwich Hill…

The founding members of the association shared a passion for soccer and saw the local soccer competition as a vehicle for the integration of new settlers into the Australian way of life and at the same time increase the local exposure in New South Wales to Portuguese speaking peoples.
