Maccabi Memorabilia

“Recently Maccabi Victoria has been undertaking an extensive cataloging of all of its archival material – uniforms, badges, pennants, Carnival and Maccabiah programs, yearbooks, historical papers and other material. We are aware that many of you in the Maccabi community also have, in your own storage, valuable archival material which might be of great value to us, especially as we have a broad agreement with the Jewish Museum for a “Jews in Sport” Exhibition in a few years.
 However, we first need information from you so we can gauge the value of what you have and whether we might be able to make use of it.
 To that end, we ask you to click here to complete an online form at your convenience. If we then are keen to acquire what you have, we will then be in touch. Please do NOT bring any items to the Maccabi Office until we have assessed the suitability of your donation.
Many thanks for your assistance.

MFCC Club News

Sportsmart are no longer supporting the old uniform design that we had therefore we have designed a new shirt to go with the regular black shorts, black socks and black jackets.
Sportsmart will be offering them at a heavily discounted price to members. A preview on the new home and away shirts are below. We will advise you when they are ready for purchase.
A reminder that blue is for home and orange for away, but the orange can be used on training nights too. When going to away games you must take both shirts to avoid any potential clashes with opposition teams.
*Please note that this does not apply to Maccabi Little Strikers, Colts or Womens team.
