Monash Blues Football Club
Commencing in the VAFA in 1962 as
"Monash University Football Club", the Monash Blues were the senior football
team on Monash University's home campus at Clayton. In 2000 the 'Whites'
and the 'Blues' football clubs merged and, commencing with the 2001 season,
the 'Whites' began playing as the "Monash Blues" side in the VAFA's
Club XVIII competition.
- Opening its doors to its
first students at the Wellington Road, Clayton site in 1961, Monash
University is now Australia's largest and most international
university. With over 52,000 students, the university boasts six
campuses in its home state of Victoria, a campus in Malaysia and one in
South Africa, as well as centres in the UK and Italy. The
university's original Clayton campus, the largest of its eight, is home to
the 'Blues' and the 'Whites'. The majority of Whites' players over
the years have come from the ranks of students and graduates of Monash
