About

Lara United FC was formerly the Lara Soccer Section of the Lara Sporting Club (Lara SC) was founded in 1999 by a small but dedicated group of parents who wanted somewhere for their kids to play soccer locally. In year one there was one team. Over the years, with many, many hours of work from a few dedicated and committed volunteers, the club has grown to what it is today and with the support of its members will continue to grow into the largest and most professionally run 'local' club in the Geelong region.

2019 Club 100


Season 2019 will see our club rooms upgrade, delivering additional, female friendly change rooms, a social space, purpose built canteen & bar plus additional storage.

City of Greater Geelong who are funding the bulk of this project have advised that quotes came back higher than anticipated so we will only be delivered the shell, we will need to finance the fit out ourselves.

In light of this we are aiming to raise $100 from 100 businesses to finance this.

We would appreciate all members asking either their employer or a business who could possibly help out.

The link to the letter is below, please contact the club should you require a hard copy printed.

For those that attended our 2018 AGM this is the same letter that was issued on that night.
