The History

The club was formed in 1950 at St Brigid's Parish Hall by members of the Perth Polish Australian community. The club was named Polish Sport Club Cracovia after the city of Kraków in Poland. It is a name shared by Polish team MKS Cracovia. The club was initially based in Perth before moving to premises in Barlee Street, Highgate in 1972. The club was based in Highgate until 1990 when it moved to its current location in Beechboro/Bennett Springs . 

'Golden Era' 

In 1965, after a number of seasons in the lower divisions of the Western Australia State League, Cracovia with the assistance of the Polish Olympic Committee recruited a number of seasoned Polish footballers including Władysław Musiał who played for Polish Ekstraklasa club, Lechia Gdańsk. Paweł Sobek, Zygmunt Pieda a seasoned footballer from Polish powerhouse, Legia Warszawa and Henryk Lukoszek. Success was immediate with Cracovia winning the first division in 1965 and straight away crowned State League Champions in 1966. 


After a decade near the top of the State League Cracovia were relegated in 1974. From that point the club's success was limited to brief spells in the top flight before leaving the semi-professional competition in the mid-90s to compete in the state amateur competition. 

During the early 1980s Bobby Moore played one match as a guest for Cracovia. 

Due to regulations of the state soccer federation the club was known as Beechboro White Eagles in the 1990s. 



Football Australia had changed their attitudes and therefore regulations towards ethnic club names after which the club reinstated their original name of "Cracovia" Soccer Club.

In 2021, the club plays in Football Wests Amateur League Division 4. As well as a third team playing in Football West's Metropolitan Division 5.
