As you know, MBVFC has recently been successful in securing two grants - one of which was for building female changing rooms and that project is now complete... Yeahhhh ( we are the only clubs in the region to have a dedicated female changing room).
The refurbishment of the existing block will also be finalised this week and we are extremely grateful to Council for their support with that project. Thanks must also go out to Davey Mac for his fantastic artwork on the new block..its looks great.
We would like to invite everybody to the official opening of the new building at 9am on Sunday, 12 May. It is quite fitting that this is Mother's Day and that it is also the first home games of our four female junior and senior teams. The under 12 girls' team will be the first to use the new facilities before their game at 10am that day.
Justine Elliot MP has been invited to attend as she was instrumental in our grant application - and Dino Rosa from the IGA Mullumbimby, as he has generously helped us with the project shortfall and is our Major Sponsor. The Byron Echo newspaper has also been invited.
Come on down on Sunday morning and be part of a very exciting new stage in our clubs development
You may not ever get to be a kool as the guy wearing the new MBVFC hoodie but you can definitely look like him ... simply make your way down to Stewarts Menswear in Mullum and buy one of our new fleece lined winter jackets .
Its great to announce that football has properly kicked off down at MBVFC. The juniors began last weekend and the seniors are well into the season ahead. Our new ground will be opening next week and our new female changing rooms will be opened this Sunday...so finally everything is coming together... Drop down anytime to say hi or come and watch a game down at Pine Ave. Lets have a fantastic and enjoyable 2019

One of the biggest ongoing issues facing the best game in the world is maintaining the required number of referees to officiate all the games going on around the globe in any one week. Last weekend saw a spate of on field incidents where referees were attacked both verbally and physically for simply doing their job.. The instant respect which a simple uniform gave off in years gone by has diminished to such an extent that referees are quitting in droves in fear of their own safety. We see it at a local level and at a National one...Simon Hill's article this week which sheds light on one of footballs major concerts moving forward is well worth a read. GO HERE TO READ THE ARTICLE
Its been a busy week or two at MBVFC. Finally the summer six a side competition over at the Leagues club has finished, and what a season it was for the club. Our A' team and our B team won their respective Grand Finals, and our C team got runners up in theirs..so a fun and successful time was had by all. This now means senior training is in full swing over at Pine Ave and team nominations have been sent in to FFNC for the 2019 comp.
Our successful Grant application to refurbish Mull1 has begun and currently looks a bit like a bomb site. Both the field and the new female changing rooms are under construction so all of the training is taking place over on Mull2.
Pre season comps Anzac and Mcmillan are now underway and scores can be found HERE
Stewarts Menswear in Mullum now have a full stock of football gear to suit your needs. Boots shinpads socks and hoodies are all available and looking very smart indeed...so pay them a visit.

Fantastic news yesterday for our club with the announcement that we have won a $200,000 Community Sports Infrastructure Grant which will completely turn our main football pitch into a state of the art facility. Senator Bridget Mckenzie along with National candidate for the Richmond area Matthew Fraser ( see below ) came to Pine Ave yesterday to make this wonderful announcement. Work will begin immediately and once finished will look absolutely fantastic. Thankyou to all those who made this happen.
Date: Saturday, 9 February
Time: 4pm to 7pm
Where: Pine Avenue, Mullum
Info: We're clearing out the gear shed so come along and grab a bargain! Lots of the old team shirts up for grabs, all sizes (buy one for training, or maybe you'd like a set for six-a-side) plus shorts and more..... If anyone has any old pairs of boots that have been outgrown and are good for a few more season that they would like to donate, bring them down as we'll have a boot sale table too..
There will also be a BBQ and social soccer games (so don't forget your boots) - it's a great opportunity to get together in the pre season. Everyone welcome so please spread the word and bring your family and friends down (MBVFC, Pine Avenue, Mullumbimby)..
All funds raised will go towards the new facilities upgrade.
