History

On 4 June 1964, a new club was born in Figtree.  Its name ‘Figtree Junior Soccer Club’.  The club started with 4 junior teams growing to 10 teams the following year.  By 1969, the club has changed its name to ‘Figtree Soccer Club’ and had introduced a men’s all age team. The clubhouse at Harry Graham Park was opened on 17 July 1971.

In the late 1970s, the Club was renamed again to ‘Wests Figtree’ and was the one of the most successful Men’s teams in the Illawarra.

However, that all changed with the floods of 1998, which destroyed most of the grounds and fencing at Harry Graham Park.

The Men’s team moved to Unanderra and became ‘Wests-Illawarra’ and the Club once more became a Junior-only club and returned to its original name of ‘Figtree Junior Soccer Club’.

In 2008, Men’s football came back when a handful of parents and coaches set up a social men’s team called Figtree Fire.  In 2015, the Socceroos won the Asian Cup and the junior ranks at Figtree grew to a record breaking 767 players, by far the biggest junior club in the Illawarra.  By this stage the club had formed a women’s team and the men’s teams had grown to 5.

In 2017, to recognise the ever-growing senior teams, the club once again changed its name, to ‘Figtree Football Club’.  
In 2023, the Club boasted 8 Men's, 5 Women's, 17 Junior and 54 Miniroos teams, catering for over 900 players.
