Monash University commenced in the VAFA in 1962 as Monash University, and the club had an immediate impact winning the E Section premiership. The club had ascended to A Section by the 1969 season, but they didn’t manage to claim another flag in doing so. In fact it took Monash, who became Monash Blues a quarter of a century before they claimed their next senior premiership, this time in C Section in 1987. Through this time football at Monash University expanded and Monash Whites came into existence with Monash University taking on the Monash Blues name when Whites entered the competition in 1964. Whites managed one senior (1975) and one Reserve (1972) premiership in their time before they merged with Blues in 2001 to become their Club XVIII side. Blues have produced some fantastic players in their time, but ultimately haven’t been able to endure sustained success in the highest sections. In 2017, they entered a team in the first year of VAFA Women’s, competing in Development Division 1.
