Five Greek football clubs express interest in Australia’s National Second Division


By Bill Roumeliotis.

Five Greek football clubs have expressed their interest in Australia’s National Second Division, according to the Association of Australian Football Clubs (AAFC).

Of the 23 AAFC members who submitted an Expression of Interest (EoI) for the National Second Division, the five Greek clubs are Sydney Olympic FC (NSW), South Melbourne FC (Victoria), Heidelberg United FC (Victoria), Bentleigh Greens FC (Victoria), and Olympic FC (Queensland).

The Head of Marketing, Communications and Corporate Affairs at the Football Federation Australia (FFA), Peter Filopoulos, said in a Twitter post that these club numbers released by the AAFC could increase.

“The Football Federation Australia will issue a statement early next week once it completes its review of submissions and payments [received after Friday’s 5pm deadline],” Mr Filopoulos said.

Representatives of the AAFC’s National Second Division Partner Group first met in October last year in Sydney, to make final decisions as to the commencement of Australia’s National Second Football Division in 2024.

According to the AAFC, in the first three years of operation, teams in the National Second Division will not face relegation, due to the large financial outlay in joining the division. The league will commence with 12 teams, with the hope of increasing it to 16 by its third year.
