2016 was very successful and exhilarating year for the Canberra Olympic Football Club. Representing the ACT in the Westfield FAA Cup, the national knockout tournament run by Football Federation Australia, the team soared up the ladder and to the 2016 Grand Final against Sydney FC. This is the first Canberra team who have made the finals in the history of local Football. With the extensive nationwide media coverage of the competition and the Club’s success the profile of the Club and local football has lifted significantly. Many Canberra based players are being looked at by interstate teams, including A-League teams and the club has been able to generate a huge interest from our junior players.
