Melbourne University Soccer Club is not just for students and graduates of The University of Melbourne. We are open to the public too.
We have 11 men's teams
of varying standards. Our top team plays in State 3NW (the fourth highest Victorian League) whereas our bottom team plays in the lowest Metropolitan division (formerly called the Thirds) (Div 6NW), so we have a team for every standard of player, including a Masters team for those who don't wish to train. As a result the merger between to two teams at the University of Melbourne, the Blues and the Rangers, in 2005 we now have two Senior and Reserve sides - in State 3NW and State 5E (formerly Prov. 3SE).
As a quick guide, if you have played football at a club before then our Seniors and Reserves teams could be for you. The Thirds teams are made up of experienced players who are more interested in social football and new players that have not played senior football before or only at school level.
Our top 4 teams play on Saturdays at 13:00 and 15:00 and train twice per week (Tuesday and Thursday nights). Our Thirds teams play on Sunday and train once per week on a Wednesday night. Our Masters team plays on Sundays and doesn't train at all.

April for the Thirds. New players should note that only players that
have been selected in a squad will be eligible to register - and to be
selected in a squad you will need to try out at training.
We have four teams competing in leagues for experienced and new players, as well as everyone in between. In 2014, we will enter teams in State League One, State League One Reserves, State League 3 West, and State League 4 North.
