Melbourne City FC
Melbourne City FC is an Australian professional soccer club based in Melbourne, Victoria. It competes in the country's premier competition, the A-League, under licence from Football Federation Australia. Founded in 2009 as Melbourne Heart, the club competed under that name from its inaugural 2010–11 season, until it was acquired and subsequently rebranded in 2014 by the City Football Group, in partnership with Holding M.S. Australia. The club is run from a facility based at Melbourne's La Trobe University, and plays matches at Melbourne Rectangular Stadium, commercially known as AAMI Park, a 30,050 seat multi-use venue in Melbourne's City Centre. The club also has an affiliated youth team which competes in both national and state-based leagues from John Ilhan Memorial Reserve.
