Founded in 1923 by Xavier alumnus, and affiliated with the Victorian Amateur Football Association since inception, the Old Xaverians (Old Xavs) are today one of Australia's largest and most successful community clubs.
The club maintains a close relationship with Xavier College, which remains a major source of recruits.
The Old Xavs waited fifteen years for our first premiership, the C Section flag in 1938.
Five decades on, the 1990s were a golden era for the Old Xavs. The club claimed a VAFA record of six A Section titles in six years, as well as securing numerous flags in the Reserves, Thirds, Club XVIII and Under 19 Sections.
That winning tradition continues through to the present day as a direct result of the efforts of our committee, players and coaches, generous corporate partners and members. Today, on the brink of the 2020 season, our club has won a total of 79 flags in 91 seasons.
In 2017, Old Xaverians introduced its first Women's Team. In 2018, we added a second, and in 2020, a third, enabling many women with a Xaverian family connection to wear the renowned Red and Black.
The club is extremely proud of the opportunities we have presented to so many young men and women who have achieved success in their red and black jumper.
