We want you to be part of the Guard of Honour to launch our new Women's Club song!
Join us on Saturday, 9 April to be part of history!
70 years after the Fitzroy Football Club’s famous old theme song was first penned, the club will write another page in our illustrious history when the Roy Girls run out onto the Brunswick Street Oval to the strains of their own version of the song in Season 2022.
To celebrate this historic moment, we invite you to join our club's illustrious community of women in football in a Guard of Honour as our Senior Women's Team runs out to the new song for the first time on Brunswick Street Oval on Saturday 9 April.
Fitzroy Football Club is blessed with a long history of trailblazing women who have served the club and game of football as administrators, directors, volunteers, community leaders, mentors, coaches, trainers, umpires and players. The women's version of the famous song celebrates the contribution women have made to our club in many ways, across our history, and into the future.
We hope you can join us as we celebrate this special moment and recognise your role in our club's story and your support for women's football. Please feel welcome to bring along any other wonderful women and girls who would love to celebrate this moment with us!
