Hearts to hearts and hands to hands
Beneath the blue and white we stand
We shout God bless our native land
Out we come, out we come, out we come, to play
Just for recreations sake to pass the time away
Lots of fun, heaps of fun, enjoy yourselves today
Ballarat boys are hard to beat when they come out to play!
So join in the chorus, and sing it one and all
Join in the chorus, Ballarat's on the ball
Good old Ballarat, they’re champions you’ll agree
Ballarat will be premiers, just you wait and see!

Each year the team travels to a major city within Australia to take on some of the best talent from University’s across the country. The cities have previously included Adelaide, Melbourne, Gold Coast and also Ballarat in 2013 during its hosting of the 2013 Southern University Games. In 2014 the team will travel to Sydney for the Australian University Games with high expectations, after finishing 4th in Australia at Gold Coast late September
For 2014 the Club is happy to announce that the Male and Female University Football Clubs will merge to form as one. Both male and female teams have welcomed the opportunity to progress forward together as one into the long term future. This will therefore expand the exposure of the university, club, players, sponsors into the Wimmera Region and the Gippsland Regions, to the host city of the Games and also the competing University’s.
