The history of the Ballarat Soccer Club starts back in the winter of 1967 when a meeting was held at the Bunch of Grapes Hotel in Pleasant Street South (coincidently some 200m from the current home Trekardo Park) to establish a club to play in the Melbourne League the following season.
 
The club played their first six seasons at Llanberris Reserve, now home to the Ballarat Athletics Club, before moving to their current home ground in 1973. Since then thousands have worn the Red shirts of Ballarat.
 
2018 sees us enter our 51st year. We have almost 200 players playing for Ballarat from Under 7’s through to our open senior teams. This year we hope to field a team in the under 16 Girls competition.
