St George FC

St George Saints FC are a football club based in the St George district of South Sydney. Founded in 1957, the club was founded by Hungarian World War II immigrants and have previously played under the names of Budapest-Club and St George Budapest, paying homage to the club’s ethnic ties. ​

Currently playing in NPL NSW2, the Saints’ home ground is the aptly named St George Stadium in the suburb of Banksia.  Famous alumni that have donned the red and white of St George include Australian football legend Johhny Warren, David Zdrilic, Argentine Osvaldo César Ardiles and even Australian football media pundit Les Murray (who played for the club at lower levels.) Even past national team coaches Frank Arok and Rale Rasic, Australia’s coach in the 1974 FIFA World Cup in Germany have managed the side during their managerial careers.

The club was one of the founding members of the NSL in 1977 and along with Marconi Stallions, (a then named) Eastern Suburbs (now Hakoah Sydney City East FC,) Sydney Olympic and Western Suburbs SC were the NSW representatives of Australia’s first truly national league. Having won the NSL in 1983 and despite not being in the top echelons of national football since the 1990/91 season, the club has seen itself move through the elite tiers of NSW football since.
