Here are some useful resources for players, families and volunteer officials
Our Playing Kit
Home & Away Match Uniform
Our playing kit is the yellow shirt, blue shorts, yellow socks, boots and shin pads.
For away matches where our kit clashes with the opposition our players should wear their white shirt, black shorts, black socks, boots and shin pads.
Players should always bring their Away Kit to all away matches.
Our training uniform is the white shirt, black shorts, black socks, boots and shin pads.
We expect our players to wear their uniforms for two seasons. This is to spread the cost of the uniforms over two years to keep our registration costs down and to minimise waste.
The cost to replace lost uniforms is $50 per kit.
Information for Match Day
Information about match days can be found in the FCB Team Manager Handbook.
It includes information specific to FC Birrarung and Princes Park.
It also gathers the most useful information from the Football Victoria rules and regulations including the setup of the pitch, volunteer officials from each team, playing attire, ball size, and what to do if a referee does not turn up.
The Miniroos Formats & Playing Rules explain in detail the rules and regulations for small-sided games (U7 – U11) including the size of the pitch, number of players, and rules of the game.
The FFV Club Handbook explains in detail the rules and regulations for what you need to know for matches in the Under 12 to U20 age groups.
The Laws of the Game are explained by the Football Federation of Australia, including the Offside rule.
Information for injured players
There is a defibrillator located inside the external door to the canteen kitchen in the Southern Pavilion.
In the absence of medical clearance, it is within the discretion of the coach to ask a player to take time off from training and/or playing matches if they may have suffered a concussion. This is as per industry guidelines and best practice.
