MUM FC Men's State League Teams

The Murdoch University Melville FC men’s state league team is the club’s highest level of men’s football. It is represented by an under 18, reserve and 1st team in the Football West State League First Division. MUMFC gained First Division status under Taki Nicolaidis and with assistant Matt Andrews, after qualifying through playoffs at the end of 2021 against Swan United.

The club emphasises providing opportunities for young players that have been developed through the club’s system.

The State League Teams train and play at the synthetic turf facilities, the Murdoch Stadium, at Murdoch University, which are some of the best fields in the State. It has provided us the opportunity to train and play matches on a surface conducive to attractive, high tempo football which provides the club with a great chance to be competitive at all levels.

Our Aims are High

First team coaching staff in 2021, Matt Wardle and Greg Simmons, had a tough job following a Covid year in 2020, where MUMFC finished runner up for the Division Two title. Two years later and a lot of club groundwork saw the club successfully finish the play offs in 2022 to win promotion over Swan United, into the State League First Division.

The men’s state league commitment is to play fast exciting football, and to improve through the development of young talent, developed wherever possible from Murdoch University Melville City’s own youth ranks. All home matches are played at the Stadium, Murdoch University.

The support of all MUM FC members is welcome as we try to make match days an inclusive and welcoming experience for all ages. Please see our club facebook page or Football West website for  dates and times of home games and come along to support the boys!
