Melbourne Victory partnered with School Sport Victoria for the second successive year, in assisting with the promotion and development of primary school and junior football programs at state and national level.

Victory stars, Archie Thompson and Mate Dugandzic presented the School Sport Victoria Under-12 boys and girls State representative sides with their playing strips ahead of the School Sport Australia National Championships in Nelson Bay.

In an encouraging display the Victorian sides placed 3rd (boys) and 4th (girls) respectively.

Both teams were presented at the Melbourne Victory v Brisbane Roar match at AAMI Park, which included a lap of honour and interview on pitch with team captains.

Meanwhile the State Championships were held at Darebin in September, with the finalists playing off for the ‘Melbourne Victory Cup-.
