25 Of The Best Club Badges In Australian Football

By Chris Wright

Don’t ask us how but it’s Monday again, so it’s time to bring some more of our favourite football club badges from around the world.

This week we’re poring over 25 of the best of the badges from Australian football; the A-League, the National Soccer League that proceeded it and a few crests roped in from the country’s other various regional leagues too…

1. Perth Glory

Glorious in purple…

2. Newcastle Breakers

Chock full of edgy 90s cool…

3. APIA Tigers

Think there’s something wrong with your tiger mate…

4. Bankstown Berries

Possibly not true fact: Bankstown’s senior side are called ‘The Elder Berries’…

5. Football Kingz FC

As if the name wasn’t naff enough already, they went and spelled it with a ‘Z’…

6. Brunswick Zebras

Can you guess what colours they play in? Go on, guess…

7. Sunshine George Cross

Wasn’t “Sunshine” George Cross a middleweight boxer in the 1930s?

8. Parramatta Power 

1-2-3-4, I declare thumb war…

9. Collingwood Warriors

By the power of Grey Skull…

10. Wollongong Wolves

Lovely bit of alliteration…

11. Cockburn City

We really don’t want to know how they came about getting their name…

12. Sydney Olympic FC

Just oozes with pizzazz and/or razzmatazz…

13. Whitsunday Miners

Industrial palm tree mining is obviously big news round Whitsunday way…

14. Dandenong Thunder

Isn’t that the Albanian flag?

15. Northern Spirit FC

Needs more flat caps, whippets and pints of stout if it’s really going to capture the Northern spirit…

16. Melbourne Knights

Sounds like a really crap Aussie soap opera…

17. Lake MacQuarie City

Someone get Tottenham’s legal department on the line…

18. Mindil Padres FC

We’ve got no idea what’s going on here, but we like it…

19. Oakleigh Cannons FC

Really rivaling Arsenal in the ‘cannon crest’ stakes…

20. Granville Rage

You wouldn’t like them when they’re angry…

21. St George Saints

Is it just us or does Saint George look bloody petrified of that little dragon?

22. Manly United

What could be more manly than an eagle preying on a dolphin…

23. Adamstown Rosebuds FC

Don’t go in hard on the Rosebuds if you don’t want to get dirty…

24. Western Suburbs Soccer Club

All are welcome here…

25. North Queensland Razorbacks

Featuring Bebop of “…and Rocksteady” fame…

    @Spiro Yeah, because the “efnik” clubs did so much good for Australian football! Produced some great players but were so much of shambles we had to dissolve the league and start again with a clean slate…
