For the first time in 30 years the Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley Football Club (MBVFC ) will enter a team in the area’s top Premiership Division for the 2022 season.

‘This is something we have been working towards for around 10 years now, and is the culmination of the efforts of many people, not least the players and coaches from last and previous seasons,’ club registrar, Albert Moses, said.

It is also a big validation for all the recent off-the-field achievements for the club, including field upgrades and new facilities, which help make the Pine Avenue ground one of the best in the region.

Mullum has had teams since 1933, but the MBVFC had its first team in 1957.

The last time MBVFC made an appearance in the Premier Divison was in the early 1990s. In the history of the Football Far North Coast competition, MBVFC has never registered a men’s top-tier trophy.

‘With everything happening at the club, we feel like it’s finally time to put an end to that,’ Albert said.
