Club History

Eastern Lions – Our Club
Formed in 1963 by a group of British expats The Eastern Lions have a long proud history on the Victorian football landscape.

Formerly known as Waverley City the club has gone through number of changes over the years. In 1997 a merger took place with Old Scotch FC and Old Scotch Waverley was born before the decision was made to take the club in an exciting new direction under The Eastern Lions brand in 2003.

Despite these changes success on the field has never been far away. In 1964 just a year after first kicking a ball in anger Waverley City FC were crowned, Metropolitan, Fourth Division Champions. By 1968 they had finished their ascent through the league tables and were now competing against the best that the state had to offer.
