Sorrento Football Club General Information
Sorrento Football Club Inc. (SFC) was formed on the 9th of February 1972. The official launch of the Club was held by and supported by the City of Wanneroo. At its inception, the club consisted of 77 junior players and a mere 9 members. The club’s colours of turquoise, black and white were taken from the nearby Sorrento Primary School, from which the majority of players were sourced.
In its inaugural year, SFC fielded teams in the under 8, under 13, and under 16 age groups. The club’s home ground was Marri Reserve at Ayton Way, Duncraig and to this day the reserve remains a vital part of the club’s playing fields.
The club moved to its present home of Percy Doyle Reserve in 1979. Today, SFC is a prominent and leading club in the Western Australia Premier Division. Whilst ever mindful of its proud history, SFC is a progressive club with strong potential for sustained success and change. To this end it was agreed at our 2005 AGM that it was time to fall into line with the rest of the world, by adopting the name Sorrento Football Club (SFC).
In 2017, Sorrento FC was the first WA NPL football club to reach the last 16 of the FFA Cup having beaten Canberra Olympic FC in the last 32. Currently the club play in the WA National Premier League.
