The Pride Football Victoria Cup brings together the Melbourne Rovers Soccer Club (Melbourne's LGBTIQ Soccer Team) and the Victoria Police Soccer Club to promote diversity and inclusion in the world game. This will be the second year the match will be played with both teams fielding a combined men and women's team. This is a rainbow family friendly and free event.

The Pride Football Victoria Cup recognises and celebrates the strong relationship between Victoria Police and LGBTQIA+ community through the sport of football, partnering with the Melbourne Rovers Soccer Club.

The first Victoria Pride Football Cup was played in scorching conditions, the game was played in the best of spirits and was enjoyed by a vocal crowd, including Deputy Commissioner Andrew Crisp APM, Rowena Allen - Gender & Sexuality Commissioner, Maxwell Gratton – Football Federation Victoria CEO, Ross Wetherbee from Pride in Sport and many others.

Rovers got off to the perfect start, scoring after a well worked corner kick. VPSC's solid defence looked a fragile as a house of cards in a hurricane, but with some direction, soon started to tighten up. VPSC had an equalising goal disallowed, but when FFV President, Kimon Taliadoros put in a 'guest' appearance VPSC had a penalty awarded and made it 1-1. As players withered, scores changed rapidly Rovers 2-1 up, before a VPSC player kicked the ball and round the keeper to make it 2-2. Rover's captain, made VPSC pay by curling a beautifully placed kick beyond the keeper off a free kick. VPSC could not tie it up and Rovers came out deserved 3-2 winners. Don't miss this next bout!
