The Leongatha Knights Football Club was initially established in 2004. We are a community based non-for-profit organisation focused on providing an interactive fun, enthusiastic and encouraging journey for soccer players from a young age to seniors players (all genders and all abilities).

The Leongatha Knights Football Club is based in Leongatha, a small rural farming community, our home ground is based at the Mary Mackillop Regional College and we play soccer within the Gippsland Soccer League. We have a wonderful working relationship with Mary Mackillop Regional College which allows us to maintain excellent facilities.

Leongatha Knights Football Club is run by a dedicated voluntary committee of management who are dependent upon the efforts of the committee and parents alike for fundraising and working bees to facilitate change to benefit the club and ultimately the local community.

Through successful funding applications over the years have we introduced a new mini-roos game day jersey, portable goals, roller doors and an upgraded playing pitch. The 2023 season brings much excitement as we welcome a new All Abilities team to our club. 2023 has also seen a new competition jersey for the Womens team.

To help our club celebrate 20 years in 2024 we are working closely with artist Steve Ulula Parker (a descendant of the Boonwurrung people, part of the greater Kulin Nation) planning new aboriginal designed jersey for the Senior Mens and Under 17s mixed for the 2024 season.

We look forward to celebrating 20 years in 2024.
